Self Portrait

When I went to the Crop Till You Drop event in April I had to bring a nice picture of me to the workshop. Believe me, it took me quite some time to find a nice one. I think we have about 7,000+ pictures on our computer, and only 3 pictures - yes, ONLY 3 - met the requirement nice. First of all, there aren't many pictures of me. And secondly, the ones that I do have aren't always nice. I guess I am just too critical about my own pictures. There is always something that I don't like. My smile (or no smile at all), my hair, no natural pose, etc. Am I the only one feeling this way?

This morning I was doing the household. When I got upstairs and looked at the white walls I decided to take a break and take some pictures of myself. So I grabbed my camera and posed against the white wall. Do you think I am silly? I only took about 25 pictures and this one turned out the best.

Wow what a great picture! I know what you mean, I'm also very critical when it comes to pics of myself...

Heel herkenbaar, voor één goede foto ben ik echt uren bezig. We zijn gewoon te kritisch, toch?!
Maar deze is mooi!

Groetjes Monique

Quiet stunning.
And yes I am also very critical when it comes to pictures of myself.
