I’m giving the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) another go. February was a bit of a bust, and left me feeling inadequate. It is the shortest month of the year, and somehow I couldn’t manage to post every day… bygones.
This month, May, the theme is “Photo.” I have a strategy. I think that’s the key. If I go into these without a plan, I’m doomed to fail. I also intend to take advantage of the offered prompts.
The first prompt, “You,” gave me pause. If you know me, you know that I hate having my photo taken. I’m getting better… desensitization does work.
Last weekend, not only did I ask to have a photo taken of me, I allowed it to be posted online.
The top photo though, the reflection of me with my camera, is more reflective of who I am, and how my comfort zone is behind the lens and not in front of it.
For the first week of this challenge, I will be offering up more photos that illustrate who I am, not just what I look like. I think that will expose me far more than a simple selfie.
