The plan for this weeks P52 Self Portrait didn’t go as I hoped. The plan was to take a picture of me and my hubby because I have a photo frame that I want to put a photo of us in (It says love) but I realized we have no photos of us.

We were going to take the photo on Valentine’s Day when we left for our date night, but my MIL was over 40 minutes late so all the light was gone by the time I got to take the photo. I finally got one that didn’t look silly as far as the pose goes and wasn’t horribly blurry from the lack of light. But the photo was way to “warm”, I should have used my white balance like Lynda had just written about. But I was in a hurry and the boys were running circles around us.

I tried editing it and I thought I got it, but when I got it uploaded on flickr I realized it’s a little “cold” now. But I give up! This is this weeks photo, Love …


I know it’s okay, but not very spectacular. Maybe next week I will do better!

Join Project 52: Self Portraits

Project 52 self portraitsLynda (from Daily Window) and I are putting up a new linky every Monday and inviting you to participate in this project with us. This week you will find the linky at Daily Window (and her photo turned out much nicer than mine this week!). Each week has a new theme (though this is just a suggestion not a requirement). This is the schedule for February:

You have a full week to link up with us. There are only two rules:

  1. You should share a recently taken self-portrait
  2. The link should be the absolute URL of your photo or entry, not a link to your homepage. Links to Flickr pages are fine!

If you want to use the Project 52 badge feel free and grab it and use it on your post. You don’t have to do every week with us you can post just once even and you don’t have to follow the weekly theme either. We just hope that you will join us for some fun.
