The 365 Journey

Inspiration is what has motivated me to take on such a creative commitment such as this in 2011! I followed one of the most amazing 365 photo bloggers last year and I was blown away at the growth, not only in her technique but her creativity as well. Through her blog, I was allowed to follow her through some of the most wonderful, stressful and emotional times that the year brought. What a fabulous way to document a "year in the life" of any individual! I am so excited to take this journey, to see what life may bring, and to enjoy the wild ride the next 365 days will bring. I hope you will enjoy it too!

23 / 365 The Attempt...

... At A Sunday Self Portrait!

This was in no way my plan for today's post... but the day got away from me and before I knew it all the light was gone and everyone was in bed and I was left with very few options. I have been inspired by a few fellow 365'ers to get in front of the camera. I am not sure this completely counts, but It's a START!  Usually I wouldn't have chosen such a busy background, but I actually loved all of the black and white frames behind me, a little bit of organized chaos... it just seem to suit me tonight! So here it is, my "attempt" at a 
 Sunday Self Portrait!

Very cool shot! It looks great in B&W and I really like the texture. Thanks for stopping by my blog to guess on my second picture. I'll announce what it is this evening when I post my next picture.

Well done. I actually like the busy background. I have yet to do a self portrait. I'm a photographer so I don't have to be in front of the camera. :)

I think the setting is perfect actually! Love this!

Megan said...

You have beautiful eyes! I like all the framing you have going on here- mirror frame, framed by the plant, frames behind you :)

Angie said...

I think the photo wall in the background is a really cool and appropriate piece of this self portrait!

What a cute haircut!

It seems most of us would perfer to be behind the camera, I include myself on the list. Last year, one of the "blog girls", encouraged us to get out in front. I took my husband to one of our favorite places, set the camera on a tripod, and clicked the remote over and over. I took over 260 pictures of the two of us. We had a blast!!

Very nice. I wasn't planning to do a self portrait on my 365 either, but I'm glad to have done it. Thanks to all the other 365'ers who inspired me to do it.
