I've been thinking all day what to do for my final photo. I was considering simply holding my camera up and grinning - nothing wrong with those quick and snapshots, I love them too! - but after my face photo yesterday I wanted to do something different.
Delanie, age 6 months, 1983 and age 28 years and 5 months, 2011. Then and now. Yesterday and today. What was and what is. It seemed a fitting end to the month.
So does champagne! We did it Rebecca - we made it to the end!
Thank you so much Rebecca for joining me in this challenge/endeavour/exercise in vanity/crazy venture! I've loved looking at your photos, as I hope everyone reading has. I'm sure that I would have slackened off as the month drew to a close without being able to empathise over our shared challenges and difficulties and seeing your great photos that have both spurred my creativity and ego - I didn't want to be shown up! Thank you.
I am so pleased I have taken these 28 self-portraits. They're such a snapshot of me right now. Some very honest, some flatteringly cropped. Some were simply turning on the camera and snapping, some were planned and posed, trying angles and lighting. Some I like and some I absolutely adore. But there are all me. I am so glad that I did this.
And I'm so glad that I don't have to take a self-portrait tomorrow. I will soon, but not tomorrow. :)
