Selfie Project

 Urban Muser is hosting a selfie challenge.  The idea is to get in front of the camera for a change!  I like the fact that you can choose your own goal.  I'm going to try for 52.  One per week.  That's reasonable, right?   I'd love to do a 365 project of some sort, but I don't feel ready for it yet.  This project will help me to get to know myself better and stretch my comfort zone a bit.
Why does it seem narcissistic when I do it, but creative when other people do it?  I'm just not very comfortable taking pix of myself. I enjoy looking at everyone else's photos - how they capture their personalities and emotions and lives.  Time to "just do it" - put myself out there - both figuratively and literally!
My wish is to be more confident - this project seems perfect for that.

It will be interesting to look back and reflect when I get to Selfie# 52/52!  Thanks UrbanMuser!


  1. Oh man, I am soooooo totally with you on ALL of these sentiments. Especially viewing it as "art" with others, yet "narcissitic" with yourself. Why is that? Okay, here is a selfie prompt for you Kathy....I would like to see one with a candy cigarette in your mouth! haha. BTW, I use to love those too, especially how it seemed you could get a little "smoke"...I GUESS from the powdered residue on them? OMG....flashbacks :)


  2. P.S. I think I mentioned on Flickr, but should mention here that I LOVE the light in that second shot, and the crop in your first. And your BRAVERY for the third :) Beautiful in all three tho.


Thanks so much for stopping by. xoxo
