Say cheese!

As I stood waiting to meet up with the ten other members of my fair-going group,
I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the carousel.
And I thought to myself,
"Self, this would be a good time to take a self portrait for Jess' Facing Yourself challenge."

I took many pictures trying to get the composition right.
(Or at least actually get the reflection somewhere in the shot.)

It also took me a while to remember to "say cheese."
(Or laugh at myself for looking silly.)

H! I can just imagine you figuring out exactly where and at what angle to hold the camera at... and then being like, "oh, maybe I should smile!" I think I've scowled more than smiled in mine!

FUN selfie Colleen!

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog! I love, love, love your reflection in the carousel! There's always been a soft spot for carousels in my heart; how cool to have thought of that and caught it just right!
