It's Day 1 of the Kickin' It Old Skool Blog-a-thon and what is more Old Skool than a self portrait?
I've taken a lot of pictures since I've started blogging, but in recent years I've taken fewer and fewer pictures of myself, so I was excited about this opportunity to get back to the practice of the self portrait. I thought about what I wanted to look like, what background to use (1 colour, many colours, no colour?), to smile or not to smile, what vibe I wanted to portray (happy, thoughtful, wistful, forlorn?), location, preparation, etc.
Of course when I sit down and looked at the pics, the one that wanted to be the selfie just popped out at me. And that was this one here. I just love how the colours and angles seemed to work out just right. It's not one of the ones I planned out in my head, but I happened to have my camera on me and was in a Self Portrait mood and voila! The moment happened.
This December Jamie and I are bringing the fun back to blogging with old skool prompts every day! Join us here to get in on the fun of the Kickin' It Old Skool Blog-a-thon!
