jump for it!

I'm still working on my self-portrait jump shot.  Thankfully, this past Memorial Day weekend gave me some much needed time to practice. Many thanks to the Hub for being my stand-in while I tried to get the focus in the right spot.  Although I've still got a ways to go, I am making progress...at least I am off the ground now (perhaps you missed my last post about this.)


When I was done with my solo shots, the Hub agreed to join me for a double jump shot.

doubles.

Ah, the joy of selfies.  I'm musing about self-portraits today, and the many alter egos that emerge from us when we turn the camera on ourselves. I hope you will pop over to Mortal Muses and say hello--I've linked to some amazing selfies from the Mortal Muses flickr pool that you won't want to miss.

this is awesome--I haven't tried this yet. I'm still learning how to use the self timer :) You both have such joyful expressions. Wonderful.

I love this jumping stuff. I've not tried it at all, so I'm going to have to. I just sprained my ankle, so maybe later.
The shot of you I think is really quite good...you look like a football or basketball star ready to grab a pass out of the air. Have a great weekend.

I am so impressed by these. I love them! All of these selfies have really motivated me to try it myself... soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could discover yours!

Great shots! I can imagine getting the perfect 'jump' shot would be particularly challenging.

Love it! Also loving the weather...

We're looking at moving to the UES to be closer to the husband's work, etc. I'm trying not to stress about apartment hunting.
