365 Self-portrait Project – week 10th

… and it’s Friday.

… and it’s week 10th of my project which I have never though will last that long. The funny part of this project is that at the beginning I struggled with taking one photo a day… I didn’t have many ideas and it seemed to me like I was trying way too hard to be creative and to think out of the box. I felt like this project is some kind of competition so each and every photo needs to be perfect and… oh… ah… SO CREATIVE. I spent too much time each day thinking and worrying about it.

Today it looks so different. Sometimes I don’t take a picture till 11pm and I do not panic because of that what would have happened a few weeks ago if I did that.

Overthinking it I struggled with ONE photo a day. Today I struggle with picking ONE photo from many I’ve taken during the day. The perfect example of it is today’s post. I just couldn’t pick ONE. Like that triptych (365/67) with our dog. She was making such a funny faces that at the end I couldn’t decide which picture is the best example of her and her way of begging for some attention and love. Those three are only a small part of what she was doing, actually.

It was a lazy week. It’s been dark, cold, and rainy outside so altogether with the weather everything is cloudy. Mostly my mood. I feel heavier than ever and really tired all the time. A few days back I told my husband that I feel like I’m going to go into a labour much sooner than my surgery is scheduled for. Maybe it’s just because I am so uncomfortable that I wish it was over and that’s why I have all those thoughts. Who knows. Will see what happens.

So this is what I came up for this week:

365/65

Saturday. Bath time.

365/66

Sunday. One of those days: “Oh darn. I almost forgot…” So in this case there is almost always a mirror involved ;) This time I struggled so much with the top photo I was about to give up. I had something a little bit different in mind but I’m quite happy with the finall effect.

365/67

Here she is. Our Lady Di begging to be pet.

365/68

It’s been really cold so those are my comfy, warm socks I got as a gift from my friend a while ago. They always work altogether with hot green tea and Food Network. Comfort to my body and comfort to my soul ;)

365/69

And again: late at night… it was right before midnight and I am not cheating here. They were taken BEFORE midnight :)

365/70

Cup of tea and my glasses. And no, I wasn’t wearing them. As I said before. Rain and clouds. Sunglasses aren’t necessary. Even less necessary if you’re sitting indoors all the time. Although I really like to use them for photography purpose. While I was taking those pictures…

… my daughter got up from her nap…

… and she saw them…

… and she couldn’t take her hands off them… .

So we played for a while until I saw her trying to step on them… .

… and the play was over.

365/71

Today’s morning. After shower.

Hope you enjoyed them my friends and have a wonderful weekend. Ours is going to be pretty busy it seems like. So I better put my feet up, rest and enjoy the period of silence and empty home.

  1. You are going to treasure those pics of yourself. Great job!! I have noticed I am taking way more pictures through the day too, that I enjoy and could post. I hope that means I truly am getting better and more creative. LOL! Love the sunglasses by the way:)!

    1. thank you, Amanda! That is great that you feel that way about your photography. Sometimes I find myslef thinking about having another blog so I could post more pictures, but that’s not going to happen. I barely can keep up with this one. Thank you for visiting and stay inspired!

  2. I just love this project…well, the way YOU are doing it.

    My favorite is the one with the multiple reflections in the mirrors.
