Little Ole Me


Valerie with CS Perfect Portrait 3 for web logo


I don’t like taking pictures of myself.   I spent over an hour  getting this one and then in post processing I needed Coffeeshop Rita and the action Perfectportrait 3 to get rid of a lot of wrinkles.   I am participating in Darcy’s Project 52 where each week we are to contribute a set photo. This week was self-portrait.   Next week is shadows.



Excellent picture. I need to get a better and more recent photo of myself. It goes to the top of my list and then gets back down to the bottom.

Have a nice weekend.

If only we could get rid of lines and wrinkles in real life so easily :). I have found I look younger in Black and White, haha. I love the bits of Bokeh you've got going on in the DO. It really is a lovely photo. And you look beautiful.

Lovely self portrait! I will have to visit Rita now.

Have a good weekend!

I'm sure you didn't need alot of editing on this photo. I love you and your blog for who you are right now. :)

This is a great self-protrait. I tried to take my picture with the dog once. Haha. The dog looked better!

You're looking great. It's a lovely self-portrait. I, too, hate photos of myself but I think that's a common feeling. I think I'd be doing quite a lot of editing!

Very nice selfie. I love that you can see bokeh of yourself in the mirror.
Your blog banner is adorable.

Your photo looks lovely. It would be nice to erase bumps and wrinkles in life, too. I like the reflecting between the mirrors.

Great job! I love your composition.

Be proud of your wrinkles! There aren't that many of us with wrinkles in this group. It shows our wisdom :)

What a great photo! I actually wish I had taken more pictures when I was younger, they are amazing to look back on in a few years. You're looking wonderful!
Val, wrinkles show maturity and wisdom - we should flaunt them for the youngsters. :-)
Nice self photo.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
