Project 52 | Week1 | 1.14.11

I am embarking on a year long project with a group of 16 other photographers…and it is called Project 52. We have assignments every week, for the entire year which we will post on our blogs. And then link to each other. Quite ambitious for me…as most of my projects like this are dead by Valentine’s Day. But if I have other folks counting on me…I’m there. Our first assignment was to do a self portrait. And let me tell you, nothing makes you feel more like a goober than trying to take a picture of yourself. Hundreds of awful photos and I managed to scrape together a *few* I felt ok enough about to put on this blog! Yipes. So here we go.

Pensive, sideways glance

This is when I drug out the mirror, I was desperate

I've got my eye on you

Yes that's my kitchen back there

Still life with dog

I actually should do an outtakes post…that would be much more entertaining.

    Lisa – I loved reading your blog. So funny, great voice! My absolute favorite is the last one…although at first I thought you and your dog were in the shower together….which would also be funny… made me smile. Thanks!

    I had to chuckle at your post. I love the word goober! I call my husband a goober all the time! I tried to use the mirror! It wasn’t working for me…I had to resort to my husband, who actually did a pretty good job! Can’t wait to see more from you!
