The Gallery – Me

March 24, 2010

Tara at Sticky Fingers runs a Gallery every week.  The basis of the Gallery is (in Tara’s words):

I will give you a prompt, an idea, a notion and you go out and take a photograph using that prompt. Or just use a photo you already have.
The prompt could be one word, an object, an idea, a phrase, anything, and you have to post a picture which you feel represents that prompt.
Post it on your blog and write about it.
That’s it.
This week is week 4. I haven’t joined in before, I’m in no way a photographer but would like to take nicer photos rather than just the bog standard photo album ones I take now. I’m under no illusions though so, as the theme was ‘Me’, I thought taking a photo of myself would be a good start.  I wanted to take a photo of me without make up – the real me that very few people have ever seen! But of course I chickened out! This is the closest you’ll get to seeing me without make up!


I know taking a picture of my eye isn’t the height of originality but hey, I’m trying! Before this I didn’t even know my camera took pictures in black & white!

    Ah but now I need to know what colour your eyes are

      They’re brown unfortunately! Not a beautiful green like my husband or bright blue like Sam, or even an usual grey like my mum. Just dependable, chocolately dark brown 🙂

    Ooooo! Getting good pictures of eyes is hard! Great picture 😀

    We all know that you had to post it in black & white as ALL mums have that lovely bloodshot look going on, eh?

      You have no idea! I felt like I’d stared into the Sun & has wavy lights in my eye for over an hour! I’m such a muppet…

    wow, what a great close-up but without your mouth, it makes you look very serious! Hope you were smiling!
