MM2:3 Self Portrait

Copyright ©2015 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

For Week 3 of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness I have chosen to submit an image that I made this week that was really hard for me to make for another challenge. A Self Portrait. Although I’m a very vain woman making images of myself isn’t something I do. I am very self-conscious and awkward in front of the camera. I feel  like I’m not photogenic. But, I’m a stubborn gal and once committed I will do what I can to fulfill the commitment even if I don’t post the work.

With time running out already in March I decided I had to pull up my boots, straighten my collar and get to work! So, while out-of-town photographing wild flowers I made several self portraits nearly killing myself tripping over the Basalt Lava rocks on Table Mountain to beat the 10 second timer then while at home on Sunday I thought I’d make a more formal type self-portrait.

Straightening my collar and gettin’ her done.  🙂 So, Hello! It’s me. Wrinkles, an all.
