Self-Portrait Challenge: Contrast, Week 1

The September theme for the Self-Portrait Challenge is Contrast. That should be a pretty interesting one, yes? It could be taken very literally or very subjectively, or a bit of both.
My first week’s attempt is one that started out more literal but perhaps became more subjective.
I wanted to experiment with taking a self-portrait (a fairly […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Shine, Week 4

It’s the final week for the Shine theme over at the Self-Portrait Challenge. Wonder what they’ll think of next!
I got the idea for my photo this week from the Know ‘n’ Tell questions I answered a couple of days ago. One of them had to do with shower rituals and if I always did the […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Shine, Week 3

I’m baaaaa-aaaaack!
I had a wonderful time with The Fam and I’ll tell you more about it soon, but since I’m back just in time for this week’s installment of the Self-Portrait Challenge, today I’m sharing a self-portrait taken at the half-way point of a five-mile hike we took in the Smoky Mountains this past Friday.

Self-Portrait Challenge: Shine, Week 2

It’s time for round two of the Shine theme over at the Self-Portrait Challenge.

Here’s the quote that inspired this month’s theme:
“I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Skill, Week 4

I almost skipped participating in the Self-Portrait Challenge this week, not because I don’t still enjoy the challenge (I do!), but because I’ve felt so crappy the past couple of days that I couldn’t manage to get anything done. I don’t just mean photography, photo-editing, and writing, I mean anything. (***More on this at the […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Skill, Week 3

It’s the third week of the Skill theme at the Self-Portrait Challenge and I bet you’re bouncing around on the edge of your seat because you’re just dying to find out what skill I’m sharing with you this week!
Huh? What do you mean you’re bouncing because you need to go to the bathroom? I told […]

Self-Portrait Challenge: Skill, Week 2

Before we get to the self-portraitizing, I want to send out happy birthday wishes to my sister Sandy! Hope you have a great day!!
We’re on week 2 of the Skill theme for the Self-Portrait Challenge. The one I’m featuring this week may not seem like much, but it has come in very handy over the […]
