Self-Portrait #365

I had grand ideas of making the last one the best one but a lazy day on the couch killed that ambition and frankly after 365 of these damn things it was just too much pressure. So instead of awesome I decided to uses two of my three main ways of documenting this self-portrait project by using my handy camera and Photobooth. I originally got the 365 self-portrait idea from this blog. I didn't think that I would finish but today is the day. I have to say that I did like having a task to do everyday. I also learned that I always have bags under my eyes and now I'm researching bag remedies. I would recommend this project to someone having a hard time blogging regularly. It has definitely gotten me in the habit and helped me form regular followers who must be as glad for me to move on from this project as I am. It also has been a great way to track memories. There are particular photos that I remember so distinctly, when I look at them, what I was going through at that moment. I'm hoping to continue to blog daily either posting a photo, video, something! You may see my face pop up from time to time. Sorry. Thanks for playin'.

A few things - had NO clue your daily self portraits was a project - so neat! I'm just not brave enough. Kinda sad it's over .... and THANKS for the new blog I've added to my following list - she's got something great going too! And last but not least - ugh. I hate my under eye bags too .... any tips you favorite? Mine are pretty bad, not sure why, I go to bed by midnight and get up between 9 and 10 AM .... and from what I know that's what I'm supposed to get .... either I need to find the right concealer (which is HARD considering my completion which is REALLY light or IDK ....

it is so wierd i thought of you today and went to your myspace page to see this link to this blog. I have been doing some self portraits of late, not as many as you but some...less than ten. it is very inspiring to see all of them. i haven't read though the whole blog to find out if there is a plan for exhibiting them. At any rate, congratulations on finishing them.

hope all is well
