It has been a while since I last took and shared a self portrait. Even though I received some really great feedback regarding my self portrait photography a few months ago, it hasn’t felt right to start it all up again since I left the 365 Days project (around the time my dad passed away). And, some folks have been asking if I’ll ever try it again.
Well, when I received my pink b5media shirt a couple of months ago, a few people requested for a photo. So, even though I wasn’t really up for a self-portrait session just yet, I took a couple of shots last June. But then, I kept postponing the sharing bit. Not sure why. I guess, it just felt weird.
But, life can sometimes be about overcoming one weirdness after another. So, here I am, sharing another self portrait. Never mind that it’s actually one that I took almost 2 months ago.
Does this mean I’m getting ready to start self portraiture once again? I’m not sure yet. Definitely not ready to start 365 once again. I don’t know if I ever will.
But, I do miss taking photos. I mean, not just the snapshot stuff that I’ve been doing since letting go of the 365 projects that I started early this year. You see, lately, all the camera action that my D40x has seen are art/craft projects and family snapshots. They’re good to have, of course. But, I don’t even take many of those photos either. So, yeah, my beloved camera is feeling a neglected.
And, well… Somehow, I just want to get back to documenting life once again through photography. No full blown projects. Just the simple stuff. And maybe – just maybe – a self portrait or two again.
P.S. – Yes, I *love* my pink b5 shirt. So pleased that we’ve got girly schwag shirts. Really love the designs of the last batch of shirts.
