This is Me
Danni of Silo Hill Farm is a bad influence on me. Now she has me posting strange self-portraits. I guess most of the blame goes to Amy of While Wearing Heels who has an ongoing link party entitled, This is Me. You take a self-portrait based on the theme Amy chooses each time. This week's theme: Looking Down.
Rather than give this too much thought (a mistake I often make--not giving things enough thought), I just picked up the camera, held it up high, and took a shot. Considering that I am perhaps the most unphotogenic person in the entire world, this is not half bad. Most of my photos look as thought they were done at the local police station after a hard night on the town.
The cool part of this challenge is that it gave me an opportunity to really look at and think about who I am. What does this photo say about me? Well, it's my usual day-time combination of jeans and a t-shirt with just a touch of bling. (For evenings I go for sophisticated with a touch of sleaze.) That necklace just came in this morning's mail from Etsy. It's got steampunk details set on top of a book. As a steampunk-loving bookworm. I HAD to have it. Why did I put on a blingy belt with L.L. Bean jeans and a cheap t-shirt today? Because that is who I am. I like things easy and comfortable, but still want just a little bit of something bright and shiny.
I cannot get Amy's button to work here, so I'm just going with this link below. Hope you'll join in the self-discovery at
