A Silly Self


I was pretty entertained by my new look today so decided I should share it with you all via a self portrait.  My hubby worries because I spend so much time working outside in the sun so he suggested I get a floppy hat to wear when I'm working outside.  So thanks to Wally World and $13, I'm sporting a totally new look today.  If you're driving down a country road in West Texas and see a 30 something wearing a floppy hat and camo sunglasses, it might just be me;)  I'm sure my skin is ever so grateful and honestly I probably will be too.  Since I can't use the fabulous skin smoothing tool from my photo editing program in real life, I should probably take better care of myself.

Technical Notes:  Nikon D700, Nikkor 28-80mm f/3.3-5.6G, ISO 2000 (Pic taken in my bathroom mirror), Focal Length 80mm, f/5.6, 1/125, Auto White Balance, Spot Metering.  And yes, in editing I smoothed my skin and removed a blemish or two:)  I also adjusted the white balance because the photo was too yellow straight out of the camera.


  1. I like the angle you positioned your face. Snaps taken in houses usually need correcting; darn indoor lighting.

    I always have a hat on in the summer too...Otherwise I get terrible headaches.

  2. You look like a movie star on a beach vacation! Beauuuuutiful.

  3. You look great! Would fit right in on the boulevard in Monte Carlo.

  4. You look like a model! Seriously.

  5. You all are so sweet! I have the best readers:)
