P52 Photo Challenge 1-27-12 "Self Portrait"

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com
So when I saw this week's P52 Photo Challenge topic, I let out an audible groan. Are you kidding me? A self-portrait?? I absolutely HATE pictures of myself. I would much rather be behind the camera than in front of it. One of my New Years Resolutions was to be completely committed to the Photo Challenges I take place in each week, so I knew I had to bite the bullet and just take a darn picture of myself. I am so critical of every photo I take, that I find all kinds of excuses not to post them. I am who I am, and I need to just accept that! I will never be thin enough, pretty enough, photogenic enough, my hair and make-up will never be perfect, but people love me anyway for who I am. Like my Sister-in-law Kim told me last week, "You need to learn to love yourself". I know she is right, but wait, let me go check my hair and make-up, haha! In all their glory, here are the 2 of 30 pictures I took that are "ok". Don't laugh too hard.
 Yes, I am a Canon girl!
Maddux and I

Aww, I love them both! And I felt the same way about this week's theme. SO much more comfy behind the lens, thankyouverymuch! :)

"You need to love yourself"....BOY OH BOY....do I hear that ALOT too! Why are we so hyper critical of ourselves. I honestly think it is one of the pitfalls of being a woman. It seems to be epidemic. As critical as we are of ourselves, it is so easy to see the beauty around us tho. And you my dear...are quite beautiful. AND...that profile shot is devine. Visiting from Project 52.

I tried to get a picture like your first and couldn't get it right. So really good for you. I love the picture of your and your dog nose to nose. So cute. Relief that this prompt is over.
