self portrait tuesday- reflection



I have been without my digi cam for several days now. Somewhere in the midst of my move and otherwise hectic life I've misplaced my battery charger and spare. I was lucky enough to find this "old" self portrait on my computer. It just so happens to be the same theme as this week's Illustration Friday. My own illustration for this theme is here.

I took this photograph in my bathroom when I was living in L.A. Notice the towel bar again- well actually a towel this time. This was taken sometime between late 2003 and very early 2004. I was 30+ lbs. less than I am now and not yet married. I was happier with myself/body at this time, too.

Uh, sorry for the "boob shot", Mom. ;)

Saw your comment on four sweet peas and wanted to check out your blog as I am fairly new to the blogging world. I love that photo of you. It's wonderful. I completely understand the self-image thing. I have a two year old and I've never been the same since. It's hard letting go of my old image of myself and accepting myself just as I am. I love the Self-Portrait Tuesday idea and would love to join in. Tell me more about it...

Most of our ideas are reflected back from ourselves. Great idea :)

very cool perspective too.. normally you'd see the real image on top and the reflected version at the bottom... yours is sideways... word!
