Weekly Winners–self portrait edition

Or  “Why So Many of My Photos are of Toys”

I have a mirror on the wall of our bedroom that is the perfect height for a self portrait shot.

Assuming I can get my camera to cooperate

First there is the problem of positioning. Even though I am fully visible in the mirror to myself, I am not what the camera sees


Slightly better but clearly the camera prefers the humidifier


Or the microwave


Or the far corner


or even the mirror frame


Really. This getting ridiculous


Finally! Only 14 shots necessary


For more weekly winners please visit Lotus at Sarcastic Mom.

Thanks for stopping by.

just goes to show that the camera doesn't have much taste if it prefers the humidifier to you.  I'm glad it finally saw the light!

Haha. So fun and so real! Love the end result!

I know exactly what you mean. I love your hair, BTW!

Sarah said...

And yet even in their imperfection, the pictures are perfect!  Love this series...reminds me of my issues getting self-p's

Haha Believe me 14 shots is nothing - try holding the camera at arm's length - it's worse!!!

Yet another reason why I don't like taking my own portrait. I know my camera would not cooperate either. Your set however, still turned out great.
