Self Portrait ~ I Heart Faces



This week's theme at I Heart Faces is "Self Portrait" and the rule is that you have to be holding the camera. So last weekend when I was at my IL's I went for a walk in their woods. It was lovely. Not hard at all to smile and be creative. I decided that I didn't want to just look into the camera and smile. In fact, I tried to find all the different ways I could be interesting while NOT looking into the camera. I think this was my favorite. I was really trying to get my face AND some of the lovely background. I think I succeeded in doing both.
