Yuck! One of the reasons I love photography is because I am usually not in the pictures. That's why when I saw this week's theme, my first response was oh no, really?
Then I started thinking about wanting to do something other than stand in front of a mirror and take a picture of myself. I thought about getting the tripod out and using the timer, but I hurt my back the other day so that seemed like too much work (pathetic, I know).
I went outside and took some shots but my eyes were so squinted that I looked like Mr. Lunt from Vegie Tales.
I came inside and took some, trying different angles but there are only so many ways you can hold a camera at arms length. I tried shooting from above because I just read an article that said to be careful about how you shoot women because of the "double chin" effect. Too many double chin effect photos to count.
I took this one while sitting down, which I kind of liked in the sepia tone; you can't really see my chin and my eyes are open.
Just for the fun of it, on the way back to my computer, I took some in front of the mirror and the very last one I took is the one I like best.
Oh well, at least I'm not required to tell how many photos I had to take before I found the two I'm willing to post!
