Self Portrait Tuesday, a day late...I realize my blog has been a whole lot of me lately. Me, me and more me. That's a little different than what lelonopo has been in the past, I suppose. But frankly, it's my blog. So there.
I've been intrigued with self portraits lately. I learned so much this past year by taking photos in our garden: it was so much prettier than it was in my mind's eye. The camera allowed me to see the garden outside of the context of the building a "to do" list of what needed to be done in the garden and what was going wrong: I saw it in a whole different way. And it gave me ideas for where to go.
So I don't know where I'm going with this, but I think photography makes me think differently. And I've been having some tough times coming up with some good concrete long term goals I can commit to. It all comes down to what do I want? Who do I want to be? The hardest part is figuring out where to go: once I put it out there, I always make it happen. But right now, I'm not sure what to put out there. I hope that maybe through photography I can start to do that and figure all of that stuff out.
Thus, Self Portrait Tuesday. We'll try this once a week and see where it goes.
