I looked ahead at the 'themes' after day 1 with the immediate response to the second theme being that I will never do that. Hmm ..probably not the best initial reaction but whatever. Maybe I'll surprise myself (and all of you)& actually finish this! I mean, it's only 30 days. I already have 1 day done. Only 29 left. I can do it!
So there we have it. Thirty whole days of topics that I need to take photos of. Anyone else want to try this out? It should be interesting ..to say the least. Are you good at sticking with things? If yes, leave me a comment with a tip on how you manage to complete things that take days& days of your life. If you can't complete 'challenges', feel free to let me know so I stop feeling so alone ;) Either way, take up the challenge& try!
So day 1 (today) is a self-portrait. In honor of this, I managed to do absolutely nothing with myself& look like a big dirtbag! It's pretty awesome. Seriously. I set up my tripod& sat on my bed with my dog (who is whining less today. Sanity? RESTORED!), in the hopes seeing his cute little face would be enough to satisfy you. Then I took a book called 'Horse and Rider' and used that cover up my face. I think it took about 25 shots to get one worth posting. I'm not the best at tripod shots yet ..but I'm trying. That's half the battle, right?

Yes. It is black& white. Honestly, at this point, is that shocking anyone? I also did a few in color to see which I preferred ..clearly, no color won. It always wins. Doesn't my dog look thrilled? This is actually how we bond lots. He sits close to me& I basically ignore him except for the occasional scratch or belly rub. It's his favorite thing because my bed is comfy& he doesn't really like to be touched.
So what did I learn? That I have to stick with something photography related to get the full payoff. I'm hoping in 30 days I'll have a successful post about how I finally finished something relating to taking pictures!
