The Sort of Hope Who Takes Her Own Picture- {self portraiting}


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Self portrait-ing was something I began when I started an interest in photography. I usually lacked willing specimens and found I was often the only living thing available. Cell phones, Web Cams, still working on getting it right with my real camera.It never mattered , just wanted a photographic history of who I was for mostly my own sake but also so my family would have a record of me “just in case”.  It then became a little project for me as my disease progressed.

It is my hope that you can also view these as I intended. Just photos. Potential art. Face value. I welcome your feedback. Good or bad.

These are some of my favorites. Favorite quotes. Favorite moods. Favorite edits.
