self-portrait challenge



i am posting two challenges today, to carry us over the next few weeks. (the second challenge may require a little more time to complete, so i wanted everyone to have an opportunity to participate.)

for tuesday, march 6th:
mirror, mirror on the wall

take a picture of yourself in the mirror. any mirror will do. now, take a really good look at yourself. try to see your image as others around you see it. bring to mind something kind or unusual that a friend has noticed about your recently. can you see what they see? will you tell us about it??

for tuesday, march 13th:
lights, camera, action!

take a picture of yourself out and about in your neighborhood, your town, your city. do you live near a landmark or a setting that has ever been used by hollywood? would we recognize it? does it have historic significance to your community? has it become more popular since it was featured on the big screen? if no movie locations come to mind, how about showing us a significant landmark from your area? get out there and get creative!

i have added a sidebar item that will list the current challenge. enjoy!!

Brutal! I stand in front of the mirror as little as possible, now I have to do it with a camera?
