Will the real me Please step down...

...Well, this is a coming out of sorts. I've been on an "anything that has to do with photography" hiatus. I am no stranger to being in front of the camera. But up until about 3 weeks ago I realized I was caught up in a total fantasy world of the internet so I've been getting "sober" and "clean". This is my 1st selfie in a while...a REAL selfie with my 47 year old self in full bloom! I've been fighting the idea of aging and being perfect & today as I was taking this, knowing full well I wasn't going to photoshop the hell out of my face, the most amazing thing happened...all the stress of taking this just left...gone...buh bye! I have accepted myself, but NOT from the camera's pov. But all that has changed. So this is my coming out party....glad you could stop by, virtual drinks all around!


  1. BRAVO! And you are gorgeous. So glad to see you again...missed you girlfriend!!!


  2. Mwah! Mwah! Mwah!
    I have missed you so much!
    So happy to see your beautiful smiling face ... looking forward to seeing your wonderful photography again too!

  3. I'm so glad to see your love for photograph continues.

  4. Well, nothing but beauty and the real deal shine from you! I'm so glad you have started your blog!

  5. I just turned 47 myself last month. I hate the camera, well, er... what I mean to say is... I hate to be in front of it! But I love taking photographs. I think this was an incredibly brave act on your part, and not because you are some hideous looking wretched thing (far from it, you're quite lovely to be honest), but it was brave because of the courage it took to make this image come about. You 'let go' and from that your brilliant self had the chance to shine through honestly. I love this blog post. Kudos to you! :)
