Paper Heart Camera Show & Tell ~ Self Portrait

Photography love...

I actually entered this picture in the paper mama's photo challenge back in August. But I really like it. So I'm using it again! :)


Tell: So I hadn't told the story behind this picture when I last posted it. It was a Friday night and our good friend was getting married the next day. We had come home from the rehearsal dinner to relieve our babysitter but my husband went out with all the guys once she had left. Now, I'd had my share of champagne at the rehearsal dinner (but I wasn't wasted or anything, don't worry) and decided it was the perfect time to do a series of Hat Pictures. I like hats. I own a lot of them. A whole storage ottoman filled of them, in fact! So why not photograph myself wearing them? So I did. (I am so weird. I know.) (I guess I could have picked from any one of those but then I'd have to hook up the external hard drive, etc etc, and it's late and I'm tuckered out!) I recently got this collage program thing and I've got to figure out how to do it so I can make a collage of the Hat Pictures. I'll post it when I do!

Anyways. This is my self-portrait. I really like it because of the way the green scarf makes my eyes look green, and because well ~ it's totally me. After a few glasses of champagne. Having fun. With eyeliner. By myself. Making eyes at my camera.
