BAM, The First Five

Self-portraits can be fun, even when you are as camera shy as I am.  I've decided to take one self-portrait a week this year, and I am posting them in the 52 weeks of BAM! group on flickr.  

So, without further ado, here are my first 5 weeks of BAMmin'...




tiles


Looking at them all together in this post, I can see I need to get a little more color going in my life ASAP!  It's pretty illustrative of how things have been around here this year so far.  The cold, bland winter.  Blah!  

And yes, I know you are going to say I need to show a little more face.  I am working on it.  But hey, I've got 47 more weeks to work up to it, right?

Great shots! And the color will come - we just have to get through this miserable winter.

I've been seeing them on Flickr...it's a great collection! I am liking the ones taken in the mirrors at various places but I really love this one here with your dog...really nice texture work.

It must be hard to muster up the strength to go out in the snow for walks!

Fantastic photos! :)
I bet as the weeks go by you'll be sharing more and more! :D
(I'm so shy with self-portraiture).

I think these are really good, especially the one that says sadness, I think it makes me sad looking at it and hearing you have felt down. I hope things perk up.

this is a cool project! i have a folder in each year in my files that is 'me' - it's fun to go back and look through them and how i've changed!

Great project - I'm about to start a self-portrait e-course as one of my photography aims this year is to have more photos of me in front of the camera. ...also, and completely irrelevant but I love your haircut.

Virginia said...

Lovely photos! And honestly, I think this post has more face than I've seen from you since I started reading here. :)

Self portraits are a brave thing to do! And I find them technically difficult too...these are great! Love the polar bears:)

Love it! I think they are great!

mosey said...

Love all five of them. And I too avoid including my face whenever possible.

maureen said...

These are all so interesting, and each one communicates you personality so well. I love the middle one of you. Just enough face to get to know you.

Heidi said...

lovin those polar bear jammies!!! I also like the photo with the word "sadness" on your arm. That's a great photo. And then there is your adorable dog in the last photo! You can even let go of the leash & he doesn't bolt? Wow! My dog would be SO out of there.

I love your perspective of a self-portrait! We are more than our faces and I love that your pictures are honoring more than that about you!
