SPC -- 'Mirrors' #4

It's the final week for the 'Mirrors' challenge for Self Portrait Challenge.

This is another case where an item that I've driven by hundreds or even thousands of times never really jumped out at me until I had a challenge theme that forced me to look for it and take notice.

As soon as I saw it, though, I knew this had to be used in my self-portrait this week. The bummer was that the couple of times I stopped to try, I always had terrible light, which, in this case is the reason for the conversion to black and white. The colors here were a bit drab anyway, regardless of the light.


If there are any non-SPC folks out there who actually browse SPC photos from other contributors, you might want to make a note that the SPC blog site will be dormant for a few months as its creator takes a much-needed break from the site so that she can focus on other projects.

I have created a new group on Flickr, Self Portrait Challenge which will continue the goings on of the community under a slightly different format which is still being hammered out. Until further notice, if you're interested in seeing the many creative and varied interpretations of the monthly themes by all of the contributors, the Flickr group is the place to do it.

Happy trails.
