Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime blog put out the call for those of us that would like to join her in a year long photo taking challenge. So I said yeah what the heck a change from always blogging about my jewelry in 2013 would be a nice change and break up the monotony of jewelry post. The challenge is to take a photo of the prompt that will be emailed out each week and then blog about your photo on the following Saturday. Easy right? Well I thought so until we got the first prompt and it was to take a self portrait. Like so many I do not really like to have my picture taken for one reason or another, although I am in many pictures with family and friends. I was once told when I used to do Creative Memories scrap booking that having photos of you is just one way of letting future generations know that you truly did exist.
I am some what of a procrastinator, so of course I waited until the last minute to start taking photos of myself. In this picture, which in my opinion is the best of the ones that I took, I am sitting in front of my photo tent I had just finished taking pictures of a cuff that I had bead embroidered. So here I am!
I am also dressed in an old t-shirt and sweat pants, because I just got off from work and no plans of going out anywhere except to the post office to mail a package, because the piece that I was to put in the mail was still sitting on the table by the photo tent. I did put in a pair of earring before I left the house.
I am excited about this Focus on Life through photography and will be looking forward to receiving my prompt for each week. So come on back next Saturday and see what I have to share with y'all.
Happy beading Y'all,
