self portrait challenge

TWO posts in one day?! well call me uncle...lol...we use to say that, i don't know why.

anywhoo ... took a couple of self portraits for emily pitts challenge over at SC. she really made me think outside the box on this one...

i wanted me and reflections and to capture what a gorgeous day it was outside so this is what i came up with...

i opened our sliding glass door to the back porch and i took the photo through the glass so you can see me and the reflections...i took a bunch but these two are my faves and i am smiling in one! ;)

What a wonderful way to capture a self portrait. I love how the image is clear where your eye is but reflected elsewhere.
