Over at Just.Be.Enough they are encouraging us to embrace the self portrait and think about what the photo says about us. So I have two that I thought I’d share and think about.
The first one I think shows how I like to be a little different. A bit of a “freak”. Do my own thing. I’ve always thought it would be cool to have funky colors in my hair so this was an experiment to see how it would look. We’ll see if I go permanent at some point.
Next is a photo I took after reading the Just.Be.Enough prompt so I had in mind that I wanted it to look happy and childish because I think that I like to be silly and goofy. But then I also realized that it shows how easy it is for me to put on a happy face even when I am not. I have struggled a lot lately but you wouldn’t know it from the photo. I try to stay upbeat for my interactions with others. Hubby tends to be the only one who knows how I am really feeling (well, and you guys when I write about it).
Another thing I realized from this activity is that most of the pictures I have of myself are self portraits, either me alone or me and a kid or 2. I need to get further out in front of the camera and get some photos of me doing something. I actually do things. No really, I do. I don’t just sit around taking self photos all day.
