This weeks themes are self-portraits and macros. I used to love having my picture taken. Seriously LOVED it. Modeled for a bridal/dress shop, had a photographer that used me for his samples, etc. but, 26 years & 50 pounds later, well, let's just say it's not on the top of my list of things I want to do. I wish I would get better about it because I know I cherish the photos I have of my grandparents. I don't care if they're chubby,if their hair was done that day or what they're wearing. I just like having something to hold onto memories of them and the ability to show my kids what they looked like. And I figure, possibly, my great grands might want to see what I looked like too.
And I was trying to get a macro of my eye. I really like my eyes ('cept for the little lines & bags starting to show up) and thought that would be a neat one for the other group. Well, tough to do by yourself. I did get one of my lashes though. And discovered I either need some good mascara or some of the medicine Brooke Shields is pushing lately. And I'm due for an eyebrow waxing too. *sigh*
ETA: tried the macro again & am happier with these results so I replaced the old photo.
