*Oh boy this is big...REALLY big~(sigh)
I've decided to jump on the band wagon with the
project with Kristin and Meredith at the helm.
For some reason, e-blogger does not like the badges from their site so the link is the best I can do.
Now, I do not have a problem in front of the camera...usually...
if I'm playing dress up & photoshop!
Well now, the whole photoshop thing was not sitting well with me. I had self image problems all my life due to what I saw on magazine covers starting around age 13 & never measuring up. Fast forward to my 365 & as self portrait project progressed, discovering the airbrush tools on Photoshop changed the rules of the game. I looked exactly the way I always wanted to look and the way I felt inside. But then I started to feel like a hypocrite. How was I any better to anyone else...most importantly to me, by giving off such a false identity.
So I pretty much stopped doing selfies. A couple of quirky things...
I like doing selfies, I don't really have a problem looking in the mirror, but when I see my images on the computer, something just does not compute in my head.
I have the lines, wrinkles, freckles & age spots of a 48 year old who should have taken
better care of herself...but didn't...
But those little signs of life are exactly that...
I am taking this course...scared to death at what I'm about to embark on.
I'm ready to take part and
document a part of my life...
every line, every wrinkle, every freckle and every age spot
If not now...
