I’m pretty sure I was in the process of setting up the camera or something like that in this photo. Usually I’m propping it against something precarious, or I was trying to set the timer, who knows. But in scrolling back through, I like it.
I took this to illustrate a story, set during the State Fair, that I never finished writing. Maybe someday. The original Sinful Sunday was a close-up, probably because I was nervous about the full-body shot. (Definitely a theme for my February Photo Fest pics). I may finish the story someday, we’ll see.

I don’t think I’ve used this photo before (apologies if I have). However, it’s a favorite of mine.

The original of this photo involved a much bigger book. I liked that one, but I like this one too. I like the green plant and the fact that you can see more of me. (This might have something to do with the fact that I’m slightly more free with my face on here now … [Read more…]
