2012 is almost over. Back in January on sort of a lark I decided to join Christy in a year long selfie project. I am celebrating that I made it the entire way. It was part of her New Year's Resolution-and many of those who signed on were also making it a resolution. I don't do resolutions, so I entered the arena with no expectations....and am now among the last standing that made it the entire way through. That is celebratory, isn't it? Yay me.
I guess I don't look like I'm celebrating in this image, but that's part of my learning along the way. There are, and I have, a gazillion moods. Sometimes they are reflected in images in an "acting it out way", yet other times there's just no hiding-sadness and sorrow; laughter and joy; indifference. It all comes through. I am glad I took the chance to make not only "pretty" pictures, but also some more intense. Every day is NOT perfect. There are blogs I've seen though, where you'd think that was the case. God bless if it really is.
Here's a recent shot-taken at the same time as the one above. I may be able to see myself a little bit better after doing this for a year-or at least look. Is it a good thing to be better at pretending? Maybe if I have to go to one of those boring cocktail networking meetings that I hate more than brussel sprouts.
Here are 2 images from each month, in order. I don't know if they show growth or not. I think I got better about being more direct with the camera over time. I learned that I like hands and feet shots-not over faces, but I find-especially hands-tell a lot silently. I like that. Apparently the color blue is a favorite as well....either that or it was just a quirk. I also got better at jump shots along the way....thank goodness. I was horrible at them back in February.
See? I've just got to get my arms to do something a little more attractive.
Here are some of my most faves from the last year.
A special celebration shout out to Christy. Hosting a meme means not only keeping yourself going and motivated, but keeping those that are along for the ride going too. I am most appreciative to Christy's dedication to this project.
Thanks for reading over my self-serving selfie post. Will I continue to take selfies-why not? When they don't seem to work, there's always that delete button.
