Self-Portrait Saturday: Light and Shade

Self Portrait Saturday: 1st Nov '08

I'm running late for my first NaBloPoMo '08 post. I ended up staying later than expected at a dinner party. It was a lovely evening, though. Met great new folks and developed friendships. And, the kids had a ball! So, it's all good. Yep, even if I was nursing a cold through it.

Anyway, I've been thinking about NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo a lot over the last 48 hours.

On NaBloPoMo, I've developed a rough guideline on how to help me along with my daily blog posts. And, one of the things I decided to do is to explore self portraiture once again. But this time, just once a week. I'll post a new self-portrait every Saturday, which I may have taken at any time during the week (at least, for the month of November).

This photo is something I took when I got home from the dinner party. I decided to play with light and shade. Just used available lighting from a room, took a shot, used the built-in monochrome edit from my camera, then uploaded the file. Yep - no other editing/cropping done here.

On NaNoWriMo - Yes, I'm pleased to say that I managed to do some writing today while I was waiting at the sidelines during my kids' swimming lessons. Heh. Not a lot of word count, though. But, writing is still writing, right?

In any case, happy 1st of November to you all. And, hope you're having a great weekend.
