Facing Myself

Some of you may wonder why I never appear in any of the pictures here. And, actually, why almost no one besides Ricki does. The main reason is (as regards others), most of my family value their privacy, and do not want their pictures up on the net. For me, although that is the main reason, my feelings about being overweight have also played a part.
But then, one early morning about a week ago, I was feeling good about the way I look, and I found a creative yet modest way to capture myself on film: [image: my shadow on a stone wall.]
Than, tonight, while looking at other entries to SOOC, I came across the "Facing Myself" challenge( see HERE), and decided to join.

AH, I thought about doing a shadow and wondered if someone else would try it. I like it! Nice!

What a cool way to "see" you.

Oh, how creative, and YAY for days when you feel great!

You have my utmost respect for the challenges you must deal with every day with your disabled daughter. You are my hero.

Thanks for linking up. There would be so, so many ways to take a self-portrait that maintains your privacy. Hope to "see" you again! Have a great day!

I like shadow portraits - they're intriguing to me. Very nice!

Best of luck to you in your efforts to change your body. I wish you much health and happiness.
