I have never been keen on Selfies. I really don't like them. Somehow I always manage to tilt my head in a weird way and taking a selfie just feels... well rather silly, so when I read that for our next assignment we have to take a selfie I wasn't really happy about it until I realized that we have to replace ourselves with a chair or a bowl! So I became the chair and this is my 'Self-portrait'. I bought a very small chair from Michaels - about eight inches high - and I already had an idea of where I wanted to place the chair. One option was on a stage and the other was in front of the incoming tide. I decided on the latter and this morning I headed to the beach which was so very cold but the sea was foaming and looked stunning in the early morning light. There I was with my tiny chair, laying down on very cold sand trying to take a picture of 'me'. The tide rushing in is 'life' and the chair is small because I am such a tiny part of this world but even so I can make a difference no matter how small. I did get some strange looks from a couple walking their dog!
It's a start...
I have never blogged before, but here I am starting a blog mainly because I have to for a Digital Photography class I am taking. At first I felt reluctant because I don't like feeling exposed. Excuse the pun. I love taking photographs, and especially of my children, but do I know what I am doing? No. Not at all but I hope to soon. I know this will be a wonderful and frustrating and despairing and amazing journey and who knows where it may lead. Can't wait!
