I'm toying with the idea of taking a photography class from Vivienne McMaster. She was kind enough to send me
her eBook called Wading In. It's all about self-portraiture. I suppose it's also a form of self-examination. I panicked
at the thought of publicly displaying images of myself.....on my blog even! I have to admit this first photo
was doctored a bit with a texture. Okay..... I'll get more daring as time goes on, right? First, I need to get
the hang of
taking photos with my iPhone. This was bright light
mid-day, so shadows and glare are prominent. I was hoping they would hide some of the wrinkles, but they
actually just magnify them.
I've said this before but, for the life of me, I cannot understand why there are so many more nooks and crannies
in my face and neck in a photograph that
do not show up in the mirror. I look in the mirror everyday very closely when applying make-up. It never looks like this!
The next photo I took when I went out
to my driveway to capture an image of the stains the Liquidambar leaves make after a rain. I love the pattern. In the process I captured a self-portrait of my shadow. I rather like it, and notice..... there are no wrinkles showing!
The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.

Happy two days before Christmas, everyone.
