Doubling up! SPC & IF
IF: 80's1/12/07: I am doubling up on the use of this image! Unexpected, I know, BUT, this is actually the only photo I have ever done a portrait of from the 80's, which happens to be the IF theme this week!! I am not quite sure what year, but I was maybe 8 or 9? Maybe 7? I have no idea, but it is my favorite photo of my father and me. Keep reading for the full story.
SPC: Resolutions1/9/07: This is my first Self Portrait Challenge post for 2007. This is a big, huge year for me. I am ebbing into my 30's and am a little shocked and awed at where I am compared to where I thought I would be when I actually hit this age. I have promised myself that this year will be clear. I will be focused and work hard to push myself out of my comfort zone. I will make sure that everyday I remember how lucky I am to be healthy, and how lucky I am to have have a healthy family. I will have authentic relationships with my friends. I will recognize what I can and can't do. I will allow myself to be human.
(This photo is my favorite picture of my father and me from my childhood. He recently turned 70 and I created this for his birthday gift. It is the first time I have done an actual self portrait. I presented him with the gift earlier this week and he was surprised and really liked it. Happy Birthday Stinky!)
