Theme Thursday - Self



This week's theme is particularly hard for me, for two reasons. 1. There is a reason I like to be behind the camera, there are few pics of me that I love. And 2. cause I have a tough time getting the focus right. So I set out in my brightest sun room to capture a good shot of me. I used my tripod and a prop to get the focus right and snapped a few. Again, I am not thrilled with the results in the way I look and the focus, but the lighting was half way decent. Here are two of my best from that session:

(I really need to get back on that diet of mine!)

You are WAY too hard on yourself - these are GREAT! Focus and light looks good to me!

I agree with Christina, you did a great job and you look great! Don't be so hard on yourself.

I'm with stacy, you shouldn't be so hard on yourself... you look wonderful. On the other hand, I know exactly where you're coming from. I look at every picture of my self and thing - yuk, I need to loose weight.
The photos turned out great.

You are so cute! Gorgeous, even! The shots are great. Not at all what I pictured a gaggler to look like:)

Okay, you have that face that says, "I'll be the greatest friend you've ever had!"

Can I be your friend?

I'm coming over for lunch tomorrow.

I love the sun room. Great place to take pictures with that wonderful bright background. Self pictures are hard to like no matter how you look at them I swear. But I do think yours turned out very nice, even if your skeptical. ;)
