Day 26 You are AlreadyAmazing- Beyond Layers



This was not an assignment that I looked forward to with relish. I hate to have my photo taken and there are few people that can actually make me look good. 
Betty AKA Hootnonny of Artistic Expressions is one that I trust. Here is Betty 
But I really cringe when getting in front  of a camera.

So imagine my surprise and consternation when I set up my camera on a tripod, set my self timer...and run around to sit down and this old lady has beat me to it. I tried numerous times and she always won out. Can you believe the nerve!! So, I brought out an old photo of myself and had her hold it for me. She was happy and so was I.


Back to more pretty stuff tomorrow!

Dang those old ladies..... They always get all the good parking places. Glad she was strong enough to hold that pretty lady, especially the one behind the picture.

What fun and a great job. I also went outside the box and had to post Day 25 here as that day was closed. I hope Kim doesn't give out "F's" for late assignments. Especially liked the combination of Black and white and color.

Girl, you are beautiful then and now...KNOW IT!

I know, I too would do the same thing, grab an old picture. I think its that our bodies may feel older but our mind has not caught up to that.

Who took that photo of you in the picture! I love it.
