52 week project
self portrait

I went to Austin this weekend to take my daughter's engagment photos. They turned out great but I got so hot and sweaty that I was not about to take my own picture. I planned to get up on Sunday morning before we left to take one in an "Austiny" place but it was pouring rain and rained the entire 3 hours home so, today, I went to a historical site in my own town and took my picture. I am really trying to learn to use my flash and I like the way this turned out. I am in the shade of a very large tree with the sun behind me so I used my flash to light myself up.

old books 40/52

The theme for this week's project 52 was a taste for vintage. I decided to stop in at an antique store near my office. I was told they had just received a large shipment of antique furniture and accessories from the French countryside. I asked permission to take pictures and they graciously obliged. I was delighted that several rooms had skylights and that the front of the shop had a great large window. The light was great and I was able to take pictures without flash at 400 ISO.

embracing my laugh lines 38/52

I took this one in my garage. I wanted to emphasize the laugh lines around my eyes so I took my glasses off.
