I PROMISE my US Junking Adventures are on the way however, I wanted to particpate in my GORGEOUS Friend Chania from Razmataz weekly photo challenge....This weeks challenge was Self Portrait....Now anyone who knows me well will attest that I LOATHE having my pic taken....As a matter of fact, Mr SVJ & I are about to celebrate our 13 Anniversary & we have LESS than 10 x pics of our life together for this VERY reason....Sad I know....You may well wonder why this is so & to be honest, I can't really say....I do remember something being said when I was very young about an 'unfortunate looking school photo'....hmmmmm....Perhaps it's due to the fact that in most pics taken of me my lips are screwed up oddly....In any case, all I know with any certainty is that I ADORE Chania & have put the discomfit I feel at having my pic taken aside for a moment to reveal the 'raw me'....!!
"The blogging world is odd in the sense that we know most people through cyberspace only.
Our image of our blogging buddy may be completely different from reality.
Do you have a physical image or impression of a person whose blog you read.? I wonder how close to reality that is.Maybe that's why blogging is so popular. The initial judgements on appearance is not there. We can be whoever we want to be."
Food for thought indeed....Chania has hit the nail on the head with these observations & her question had me reflecting on HOW I judge people when I meet them in real life versus HOW I judge them here in blogland.
I posted this pic first (although it was the 3rd taken) as I feel it accurately reflects who I am....I'm quick to laugh & here I am kacking myself over Baxter & Harley (our two adored fur babies) after they ran into each other on the deck resulting in fisticuffs, hissing & summersaults....hahahahaha....
OK....So here I am just out of bed not 4 minutes after realising I was running behind for Chania's challenge.
....hmmmmmm....OK so I need to hold the camera more to the left....
One more for the road....
Well there you have it....Needless to say, you probably won't see a pic of me for a good long while other than those taken of me when I was Junkin' in the US recently....!!
Cheers for now,
