Faces: Week 15 Self Portrait

Self portrait

This week's theme at iheartfaces self portrait. To enter this week you have to take a photo of yourself while holding the camera. No use of tripods. If you want proof that I did just look into my sunglasses! :-)

This was a hard one for me. It's hard enough looking at photos of me that others take but trying to take one myself that I'm OK with is something else! I deleted a lot of photos! Plus it ain't easy even getting a decent photo when you're blindly pointing the camera at yourself!

I took this one last week on our family road trip. I decided to use picnik this week and applied the Holga-ish effect. It replicates the effect of using a Holga camera

Very nice! I learned something new about "Holga"...never knew that. Interesting.

I would rather be behind the camera than in front of it too :)

I love the camera in your sunglasses - that's so cool!

Lovely "meeting" you this week,
