2/365: All eyes on me

The eyes have it

If you look through the thousands of pictures of my family - in albums, in shoeboxes and on CD, you'll find very few photos of me. I'm usually behind the camera and HATE the way I look in most shots. So my first challenge is to take some self portraits. You have no idea how many pictures I took and rejected today.

Not quite sure what I'll post for tomorrow.

Self portraits are something I'm not good at! It was one of our projects for a photo class I took, and it took me forever to find one I'd turn in. It happened to be a shadow of me. Luckily the prof thought I was being 'artistic'!

Nice shot, and thanks for visiting me over at Raising Peanuts! I'll be back to check out your photos, I love me some photography!

Love it! It is nice to see pics of Mommy too. Everyone is commenting on your eyes, I wanted to also say good job on your upper eyeliner! It takes talent :)

I wish I had taken a picture of my eyes BEFORE the bags and wrinkles set in.
This is a neat idea. I always delete my pictures too, and often wonder what my kids will have to look back on when I'm gone... I'm comfortable with them remembering me like this ➔

Those are some lovely eyes!

I photograph HORRIBLY! My husband says that I always look drunk or constipated in pictures...which may or may not be true...

I agree, so hard to like one's own photo. But you have 1/2 a great face here!!!

Your photo reminds me of just how old and wrinkled my face is looking! And how baggy my eyes are. Despite the hectic life you describe above, you're doing something right : ) Or maybe it's because I stay at home full time with my kids. I think I need to get back to work just for a "break" in my day. For my face's sake, of course.
