Last month I mentioned that I felt like I wasn't really expanding my selfie repertoire, and I'm sort of still feeling that way. It's OK. I'm having trouble blogging regularly-and that's OK too. It will happen. I did start a 365, and that daily exercise is good practice-I've had to push myself on that too. I am working on taking less pictures, thinking more, and finding something good with way fewer clicks per day. That can be difficult.
All this boils down to one of my fave selfies this month.
A Walk 1/365
Something I've realized, I really like taking and viewing images of hands and feet-in general, but also including my own. I find they tell a lot about a scene, a day, an emotion-even though they are seemingly void of any expression. I am not reluctant to show my face-I just like these extremities. Whatever that might mean.
This is sort of a new perspective as it includes motion-and the abstractness of that also appeals to me.
I Want to Fly Away 6/365
Here's another. The emotion in this is very sad to me-even though it says dreams and someone else might interpret as uplifting. My hand says sadness....to me anyway.
I think one of the problems is I don't plan on doing selfies. Sometimes in an environ I'm unmoved, so I decide to add myself to liven things up (I guess I'm a lively sort)....Lots of RR tracks as tripod examples here. In this case I think the spontaneity worked, but I think if I could be better planned, I might get away from what I'm accustomed to. In general I don't take staged or planned photos-I shoot what I find along the way "as is where is" which I think plays into it.
Lens Talk BW
OK...that's it for this month. Had to leave you with a face shot-how awesome a find-water that made such a mirror. Didn't plan this one either.
Looking forward to seeing what the rest of my selfie die-hards have come up with for their new perspectives. Thanks for stopping by to see mine.
