Theme Thursday- Self Portrait

I actually planned this one in advance. I was going to do, like, my reflection in some sunglasses so it would be mostly a photo of sunglasses and not really a photo of me.  Like....I would be an afterthought.  Then I saw Cari's post and was like "hmmmmm, I'm probably not actually supposed to be an afterthought in this particular instance.

And so I got super brave and didn't put on any make up or fix my hair and I even made the bright sun shine right into my eyes so I would have to squint.

You know what's sad?  That the picasa photo editor doesn't have a "nose en-small-inator" button.  I'd be clickin' the bejeezus out of that one.

Alright, quit stalling, dweej.

f/3.5 --- 1/640s --- ISO/100


There.  I did it.  Now go check out some more of the brave selfies over at Clan Donaldson.

    And if Doofenschmirtz ever made a Nose-in-smallinator, I'd totes be using that bad boy.

  8. Dwija, I'm serious...and not even sucking up one bit...but seriously, this is one of the most beautiful photos I think you've taken. Making it even better that it's one of your very own face :) Hope you are well sweet lady! Good job on the photo challenge!

  12. You're a stunner, Mrs. Dweej! :) I love the black/white/lighting and everything! And a nose en-small-inator would be just lovely...

  13. Beautiful! And your nose is fine! (You should have seen the selfie of mine that was about 80% nose that I posted to FB the other day...)

  14. I love the artsy quality of your self-portrait. I'd like to see a nose softener feature for those pictures where my nose looks too pointy. LOL!

  15. I love this. You are gorgeous. And shut up about your nose. I think your eyes stand out the most! :)

  16. I agree with Francine, shut up about your nose, there is nothing wrong with it. Love the picture! What a fun blog post.

  17. Great pic, love the label too! Awesome!

  18. You are a natural beauty!! My nose always looks huge in black and white. Went with the crayon drawings instead. I'm not brave. Not brave at all.

  19. I think this photo is so cool! It's so arts-y to me. Something I personally could never pull off. I'm super jealous...but in a good way, ya know. Glad you were brave and went for it.

  20. I think you look beautiful and strong and funny. But hey, what do I know? I've just been lurking on your blog!

  21. You look really beautiful. I love seeing those honest, no makeup, no glam photos. Unfortunately, I just can't bear to take any of myself because my skin is so bad. But yours looks lovely!
