Simply me!

Last Saturday I’d decided to pass on Elena’s Seflie Saturday. Her topic is “Backyard” and I do not have one.

Anyway sometime between Saturday and Sunday I had changed my mind. 🙂

Non of them are backyard photos. They were taken in my kitchen and in a bathroom. Some of them are headless. Of course! I lost my patience trying to fix it. At the same time my daughter was done eating and she didn’t want to sit in her chair anymore, and I didn’t want to take those pictures without her. Had to go with what I had taken and call it good. I’m not very upset about it, though. I think they look pretty interesting.

On the other hand I focused only on my head shooting in the darkness of my bathroom. The light was only from two candles, so most of my shots were too dark to fix them… (i don’t shoot in RAW! I used to). My ISO was 800 and I didn’t want to go any higher. 800 was almost too high anyway.

Those few I’ve chosen were good enough to make something from it. I made them all black and white not because the original color was bad but because it looks much better that way.

The picture below is pretty funny. I actually had no idea that my camera is so close, almost in a reaching distance, from my daughter’s sticky and dirty hands.

different edition of this photo is here. It seems like I do not have that picture anywhere on my computer. Can’t find it!!!! Grrr…


I love everything in this photo. Light, lines, and the texture(s)! I know this is not technically perfect. It’s blurry and grainy, but those two things make it so interesting and attractive, I think. I even used one texture to add more grains to this photo, and one from Kim called “Aurora”.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
