self-Portrait





This week at Iheartfaces the theme is self portraits. Well I went for it and took lots of close up pictures of me right after I had been crying my eyes out. Yeah not so glamours, but I am going to scrap this later and the story behind my crying is what I wanted to capture. I had been watching a show and a father and son had passed away due to tragic events. This type of thing brings a flood of emotion to my heart and I start checking on my children and telling Randy over and over how much I love him and that I never want to lose him. I am sensitive that way, as I am sure many other moms are, but for me I take it on with such a heavy heart that I grieve as if the lost ones were mine. Randy does his best to sensor me from things that will have me in emotional over load , but there is always something he missed bless his big heart! Any way I want to scrap about that and how it is part of who I am and that it makes me want to keep those I love close to me and never miss the chance to say I Love YOU!

This picture was taken in Manual Mode... Not so easy when you can not focus! Also the only editing was black and white conversion and leaving my eye blue... all other personal flaws in all their glory are present! Thank you for looking and please be sure and check out the other really awsome photos at I Heart Faces...

You remind me so much of myself...I can work myself into a frenzy when I start thinking about sad things like that. :(

Your photo is really stunning though! Really cool angle that you ended up with.
