Selfie #1

So I've made a deal with myself to do a self-portrait each week in 2012. 52 selfies in 52 weeks.

Self-portraits are so revealing.  They show how we feel about ourselves, how we really look.  I have many times said that I don't like I how I look in pictures, but the truth is, I just haven't liked how I look in life.  This is a journey in self-discovery and acceptance for me.  I hope you think about doing your own project.  Already with my first I realized how hard this is going to be, at least at the beginning. 

I took this one on the way to work this morning, sitting in traffic.  Not really wanting to look into the camera.

But, I am accepting, and therefore sending this 1st Self-Portrait out into the void.

Have you ever taken a self-portrait?  What was your experience? 


  1. I think this is a great idea.

  2. Congrats! You've inspired me. I'm in. :D Can't wait to see how things change throughout the year.
