Self Portrait


This is me as I am sitting at my laptop right now - "talking" to you live, so to speak.  Not a great photo, as all the light is behind me and it is a dull drizzly day.  I don't often appear here - except for my toes :). It is not that I am particularly camera-shy, but as the house photographer and blogger, I use this space to record life through my eyes.  My slightly techno-phobe husband is not as snap-happy as I am, and I have to specifically ask him to take a picture of me.  James has begun lately to sneak off with the small digital, and I find it later with random images of cushions, me cooking, or blurred shots of his crushed car collection (surely every small boy has one of those?)
So this is how you will find me, most days as i sit down to do my computery stuff. Hope it hasn't scared you all away ;)
Thanks to Courtney for resurrecting this meme, which I missed last time around, and to Tracey for reminding me about it.

  1. I think it's a lovely photo - you look well and relaxed.

    I love seeing what dd photographs on her camera, she loves it - often it's little funny films these days that have her in hysterics!

  3. Nice to see you.
    Kids and cameras are fabulous combination. I have a camera in my classroom that my class use when ever it takes their fancy. Sometimes I get real gems of a child's perspective which I save and email to the parents at the end of the year or feature on our class blog.

  4. Our Grandsprog has only recently taken this up too. Kids certainly see things a tad differentl, it seems, at times! Interesting results. That sailing pic, top left of header, is great - marvellous colours, feel etc. Best.

  8. Oh you do look lovely, actually I think the lighting complements the shot. I wish I looked so good, right now I am a very hot mess, as the weather has decided to take a turn for the very warm! Josh and Tabitha take our camera and phones regularly and the results are often very funny! Thankyou for your kind comment, its very nice to be back blogging again! Hopefully this comment will now work, as I have followed your instuctions!

  9. Lovely photo of you, the lighting gives it a very atmospheric look.........I miss the days of crushed car collections along with spiders in jam jars! x

  10. I love how you describe this space as life through your eyes, so you often aren't photographed. I also am rarely shown on my blog, or the photos are self-portraits in mirrors. My friend's daughter recently asked about it. I will need to share a photo as well.

  11. First it was toenail envy, now it's hair envy ~ in the nicest possible way, of course ;-)

  16. Beautiful!!

    I looked earlier, but on the screen I was on, all I could see was shadow. I knew there was a benefit to having more than one computer ;)

  17. Thank you all - I feel all smiley and glowing now.
    V - it must be the grey highlights I had specially put in ;)
    San - how good that would be, I will imagine that from now in.
    Liz- glad it worked - I don't know why it does though!

  20. Hello, Jacqui! You are lovely! Your story sounds like mine...I've been asking hubby to pick up the camera so I end up in a few pictures (although admittedly when he does snap a photo I don't often approve of how I look in it). Thanks for sharing!
