This week on I ♥ faces, the theme is self portraits.
The two categories are adults (a self-portrait) and kids (a self-portrait of you and your kid(s).)
This week I decided to enter both categories.
You can click the photos to make them larger.
You may recognize this photo. It's the one I use as my Blogger Profile Pic. The only difference is that this is the original photo before I drew the angel on the one in my profile.
It was taken in September 2006, after my husband and I went for a walk. When we got home I decided to take a picture of myself to show how much I missed my little girl. Incidentally this is one of my favorite photos of myself, and I am considering this to be one of the photos for my wall project in my living room. I already have the photos of my husband, daughter and pup, I'm having a harder time picking a photo of myself. What do you think, is this a good enough photo to blow up into 8x10 for the whole world (or, really, just those who come to my house) to see?
I took this photo this morning. It is me holding a photo of my daughter, who died in July 2005. I know this isn't really what the hostesses of I ♥ Faces wanted us to do but I still wanted to do this. I debated last week to enter a photo that I had of my daughter's photo with tulips for the children's category last week, but in the end I didn't. I also could have shown a photo of my daughter's teddy bear Easter-Egg Hunting last year. But then you all would've thought I was nuts. (I am, by the way, but I don't want you to think so!)
Anyway, you can see the reflection of the camera in the photo which proves it really is a self portrait even though I'm not looking at the camera. It is a bit blurry because of how I was holding the camera and when I clicked it, it shook a bit, but I still thought it was a good photo and I have no idea how to fix blurry pics.
Thanks for looking.
