Week 4 was “Self Portrait”. Lots of things came to mind for me for this week’s challenge I thought about setting up my camera on a tripod and getting creative with lighting, etc. But then I thought, I need to show “me” as I see myself.
So here’s my “selfie” for the challenge. I love exploring interesting, picturesque places…and most especially in the southwest. The varied landscapes and wide vistas can’t be beat in New Mexico. And while exploring and photographing my adventures, I like to look my best. And that means doing my hair and wearing red lipstick. 🙂
This photo was taken at White Sands National Monument in southern New Mexico. I had a great time exploring the dunes. It was 20 degrees outside but I didn’t seem to notice since the sun was shining so nicely. I haven’t been t0 White Sands since about 1976 when I was a young girl. While there I thought of all the fun my family had picnicking in the dunes.
Scarlett obviously couldn’t take her own selfie. Now she’s a smart girl and could probably figure it out, but I didn’t have the time to show her LOL! So I took her picture for her. She loved running up and down the dunes as fast as she could go. You can see she was having a great time.
