Day 516: Self-Portrait (Challenge Day 1)

30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 1

It’s time for me to start a new challenge today! This is called the 30 Day Photography Challenge. Click on the 30 Day Photography Challenge tab above (or click here) to see the list of photos I’ll be taking all month. The first photo on the list is a self-portrait. I don’t really like most photos I’m in, so this was a tough one for me. Plus, I was trying to think of a way to make it creative and fun. So, I put the camera on a ledge in the lobby of my apartment complex and decided to make a silly pose. I do like how the lobby area looks in the background. I also decided to show off my cute new shoes! I wanted to take the photo outside, but it was very rainy and we had a tornado warning for a while. So, that wouldn’t have worked.

I’m still a bit surprised we had a tornado warning. I heard the sirens around my apartment complex, but it was sunny and calm outside. It did look pretty dark toward the east, so I guess I was in a safer area. I guess it’s better to have a warning than nothing at all!

Do you play Draw Something? I’m usually not into games, but this game is a lot of fun! I’m pretty bad at drawing, but it’s fun to try. I think I have more fun guessing than drawing. If you want to play, let me know!
