Okay, so this self-portrait is the first that is DEFINITELY cheating. This image was not taken in February. But, my heart was (is?) still in the right place and the sentiment is the same. I have said it before and I will say it again but as photographers we work hard to constantly keep ourselves inspired and committed to creating things that are unique and interesting.
I cannot complain in any way that I get to do something I absolutely love every day. I mean, seriously, how lucky am I? But I will say that it makes remembering to do it for PERSONAL reasons too that much more difficult. It’s a classic case of “the cobbler’s children have no shoes” – isn’t that the saying? During busy season, I spend so many hours with a camera in my hand that it’s hard to remember to pull it out or bring it along just for fun sometimes too. And, I’m committed to getting better at that with each passing year.
So this photo is a prime case… I brought my camera along for some good fun and accidentally stumbled into this – a room with 270° of mirrors around it. And, though I wished I had something perhaps more interesting than myself as a subject, I couldn’t resist taking the shot anyway. Now, if you knew where I was, you would realize why this was weird, and strange, and total “commitment to the cause.” Any of you recognize this room? Let’s hope not. 😉
