I decided to link up with Cari today for Theme Thursday. Her theme this week is Self-Portrait and sense I actually had access to the subject, I went for it.
Unfortunately, I have issues.
It happens every Sunday when I do the pictures for my What I Wore Sunday post. I look great in my mirror but when the images appear on my computer screen, I look different - old, chunky, wrinkled.
I am all of these things but for some reason when I look in my mirror, I don't see that. I see "older but still kind of cute". But then when I look on the computer screen, I want to run screaming of the office and into the safety of my darkened closet where no one will ever have to see me.
It's very similar to the first time Sarah heard her voice on tape. She literally started crying.
And that's pretty much how it went this morning. I took 23 pictures of my face. And I determined that a camera so close to my face is definitely not a good thing. I did not cry but it was definitely a downer.
I even tried to do the black and white thing that Cari did to tone down the wrinkles, giant pores and crooked teeth but alas, it was to no avail.
Apparently I need Photo Shop to make the needed changes. And since I don't have Photo Shop, I'm going to do the next best thing.
I'm using a blurry photo!
Cari's place for better photographs and much prettier subjects!
