This one I almost laughed at, the entire state of Oregon is green! I looked outside, especially this time of year, and I can’t see anything that’s not green! I wanted to make it more interesting and it took my a few days to come up with what I wanted to photograph. After days of walking around and thinking of something, I came across moss… everywhere! Moss is the only thing that stays green all year long here in the Pacific Northwest. Here we have it on our trees, sidewalks, porches, fences and even on our roofs! Even in August when everything is dried up, the moss is still there, green as ever!
So here’s some moss, not the most creative, I know, but it’s green and it’s everywhere! HAHA
Found this patch on our wooden fence lol
I have two shots here for you, I think I’m only suppose to post one, but I couldn’t decide which was better. While driving on our freeway, it’s the only time you can see a lot of the sky! We live where there are more mountains and trees and the sky is limited, so these are out the car window, haha! Hopefully you like them!
Which do you like better?
This second one I tried to get your eyes more on the clouds than the ugly freeway below it, so I tried to make the lower half of the shot more of a silhouette.
“Wore” I know is past tense, but my ring I have worn, continue to wear and will wear everyday for the rest of my life. The engagement ring is my grandma’s, William had the wedding band custom made to match it 🙂 I love it with all my heart! I have my grandma with me every day of my life!
“Everything is a self-portrait. A diary. Your whole drug history’s in a strand of your hair. Your fingernails. The forensic details. The lining of your stomach is a document. The calluses on your hand tell all your secrets. Your teeth give you away. Your accent. The wrinkles around your mouth and eyes. Everything you do shows your hand.”

I have been dreading this post. I don’t like pictures of myself, and I know this one isn’t very good. In fact you will probably all think it’s awful HAHA! I know I don’t really like it, but the reason behind it is, I hide behind my hair. If I’m meeting new people or just nervous, I hide behind my hair and I don’t look people in the eyes. I tell people I have the “ostrich” effect, I think if I don’t look at people they can’t see me haha! It’s silly but while I was wrecking my brain on how I was going to do this, I just thought of something like this, a little more of an art style than portrait. I probably completely failed, and I’m kind of curious as to what you think. Here’s me, hiding behind my hair, because I’m out of my comfort zone.
I have never done anything like this before! I saw it on a fellow bloggers site, and I know a lot of you have done these in the past and thought, what better way to challenge myself than to do it like this? I’m excited and extremely nervous. What if I do them wrong? The first and last challenge is a “self portrait”… what?? I do NOT like photos of myself. How will I do it? So needless to say, it will be challenging HAHA! I hope to increase my creativity and do it well!
Let the games begin!!
