Focusing on Life: 52 Photos- Self Portrait


Okay, so I'm a little late to the party. I signed up late so all I have is this cheeky portrait for you for the first post. Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime is hosting a photo a week challenge, and will be giving us prompts each week. What a fun project, and I have really been wanting to use my camera a bit more for things other than jewelry shots.  except. I took this photo with my apple computer. doh! Better luck next week.

The first week is self-portrait. This picture pretty sums up my life the past few days. I am feeling a bit snarky due to the dieting thing.... and have been wearing this wool cap from Gander Mtn. for the past 4 days straight. Which adds to my attitude quite a bit I think. Joe's not too sick of it yet. I may have to retire it tomorrow. And actually do my hair. OK sorry, off topic.

Yea so, self portrait. here it is.

  1. I'm so glad you are playing along. You are so cute in that Gander Mountain cap. Of course I have never seen a bad photo of you, and yes, you do look a little cheeky here.

    Good luck with the diet thing. At least you have a companion to cheer you on.

  7. Lorelei, I love how you captured such emotion(attitude) in this selfie, but your eyes give away a slight sadness. Hope all is well and that you are having a great start to the New Year.

    I do have to tell you that that hat is the BOMB!! I love it!

  12. This is actually very hard to do. That's why I chose to lie on the floor, use a camera on a tripod, with a clicking shutter cord and soft lighting. Well done you :-)

  17. Cute cap... hat's like socks are worn only if I'm about to freeze or get broiled, not an standar accesory! You look very relaxed... not sure how since you probably just jogged accross the room after setting the timer on the camera!

  18. Love this pic - you look very sassy and there is a definite air of 'mess with me at your own peril' about it...food and mood are so inextricably linked.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
