#MusWidNov2015 kicks off today with the photo prompt of “selfie.”
I thought I’d do one of those 10 question survey things for this entry, because I, frankly, felt too lazy to actually write something meaningful. I figured I should use this post to introduce myself to any new readers, but this blog has an About Me section. What’s the point, really, in expanding on this photo of myself?
The point is that sometimes a picture doesn’t quite tell the whole story.
Like this photo. I was going to do some cute smile at the camera and do some sort of prose about how I wore my hair “curly” today, because I didn’t have time this morning to flat iron my hair.
But instead, right as my finger was going to click the button to take the photo, my husband said something and I looked at him. I ended up loving this image and using it for today’s photo.
It’s outside, in the dark. The time change means sunset at 5 pm. I’m a night owl, so the darkness almost feels more comfortable to me. I’m most active when its dark. However, it also means I’m going to have to give a bigger effort to make sure I get an adequate amount of sunlight in my life.
My husband is home. He travels so much for work now, that I treasure when he’s home more than ever. I love that I know I am looking at him in this photo. I love that it was to talk about something as normal as needing to clean out the garage.
I am so excited for this photo challenge this month, and the added challenge to blog about each image. It’s going to make me think about my picture choices a little bit more carefully.
Selfie… not necessarily a gratuitous “look at me!” thing. For me, today, a totally normal moment in time… a welcome normalcy in a life that is rarely anything close to “normal.”
