What Is This Place?

This site is a work in progress - much like life, actually. I am an amateur photographer who enjoys playing with my Canon EOS 10D. Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome, since I'm really just learning. Like what you see? Encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Fun is Beautiful

New Boy (for those who don't read my other blog, New Boy is the current romantic lead in my life) talked me into letting him have a guest spot today. He loves this picture, because he says it's what I really look like. I hate it, because I don't like my smile and I have very little makeup on and, well, I'm an insecure girl so I despise pictures where I don't have control over how I look. Because that's just who I am.

    You have a spifferific, sunny smile. And those freckles are so cute. Count me as another twenty-something male who doesn't like makeup.

    I love this. I am glad that NEW BOY talked you into it! I just celebrated by 29th birthday (for the 6th year in a row) and I am not big on makeup. Mt skin is so much better for it all these years later. You look beautiful and happy! :)

    Good image of yourself.

    Interesting thought of looking like you really do in one photo as compared to another, but it really is true for some people. You do seem to have different "looks" in your photos. I think you have about three, that "famous" girl is one of them ;)

    i think you're pretty. but i know what you mean. my mom takes ugly pictures of me and when i complain, she says, that's just how you look! and then i cry and cry.

    The picture is great. I am glad new boy talked you into it. The lack of makeup makes it that much better. I am one of those that think makeup is way over done in this day and age!

    I guess we want to look how we think we should look. I'm critical of myself too.
