Optional theme this month was "thankful". Hmmmm...
Farewell Old Friend
Well, this month I am most thankful that I was able to purchase a new (lightly used) car. Not exactly actly actly what I wanted, but damn close. It was a good deal from an acquaintance. His father's car-8 years old with low mileage. I'm not sure it only went to church on Sunday, but maybe made just a few trips a week to the golf course.
Dry Your Tears
In addition, I sold my 1999 wagon with 200,000 miles to the kid next door. Right before I sold it to him I had it washed-and decided to snap one last selfie in the side mirror. And then I felt a bit sad. I guess that's normal when one has carried you through several phases of your life, both good and trying. Perhaps those drops were the car being a touch sad too.
I don't know that I'm thankful for jeans, but then again, yes I am. My favorite clothing item. This isn't an iphone shot, just a square crop and texture.
Although I have kept up with the selfie project, last month I missed doing a post and linky. Whoops. The theme then was to put yourself in a favorite place....which I pretty much failed at.
You Talkin' to Me? 42/365
One of my favorite places is being home. It's quiet, there's food, computer, TV, a comfy bed and a couple of pets. I suppose you can't tell I'm home since I hogged the frame with my mug, but I am. Trust me.
Flat Car Selfie
I don't know that on a flat car is a favorite place to be, but I am drawn to RR tracks as places to shoot. Counterbalances all the rural and water scenes available to me.
Suddenly I See
Lastly, here's my fave selfie from the last month. The photo is from February, but the process is new. I shared it a couple weeks ago to mixed reviews-because, it's weird. I like using selfies as a basis for making abstract pieces-my eyes usually play heavy in the results. Believe me, this is child's play compared to a lot of the things I've done.
Thanks to Christy for making the effort to keep this linky up and running. I know it's hard work and time consuming, but if it's any consolation, I've really enjoyed the process throughout the year. Happy weekend everyone.
