You ~ Day 9

Laid in bed this morning and looked at my phone to see today's word from Henry Lohmeyer and I thought to myself oh Poop! I hate doing self portraits but I had thought also for a while I needed to update my portrait.  I mean I hit a milestone this year and hadn't done one for the year.  OK I started thinking, I need to get up now if I wanted to have the good light.  I was also using my fav lens these days Lensbaby Velvet 56. It is a good portrait lens it can be sharp or it can also give a soft effect.  Now when you are this old you need some softness so this is what I did.  I also had a bit of fun in Topaz Impression at the end. Always good to just play and be like a child. 

A few quotes to go alone to help me with my vision. 

“ Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”– Marilyn Monroe

“ Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.”– Allen Ginsberg

“ You are you. Now, isn’t that pleasant?”– Dr. Seuss
