I haven’t done a self-portrait in such a long time. Mostly because I have been lazy and uninspired. Today I finally had an idea I liked, but when I went out to shoot it I realized my hair isn’t long enough for what I had hoped to do. After messing around in photoshop quite a bit though I managed to turn it into something I think works.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my bridesmaid, and we stopped by the ceremony site for my wedding. I wasn’t excited about planning this wedding until I found this location, and now I cannot wait for everything to come together.
I wish I could bottle up the beautifully sweet smell that washed over me when I walked up to our apple trees this evening. And then share it with the picture so all of you could enjoy it as well. There is nothing like it.
When my oldest brother (who is now 29) was little he would collect agates (and many other rocks for that matter). Most are in jars in my parents’ garage or have been put back in the ground, but my mom kept a handful in his old room.
Oh, and my brother is now a geologist, so all of his rock collecting days make sense.
And, for some reason my 366 has been about memories for the past few days or so, this one especially.
