Focusing

 Focusing  on myself was the first thing I started this year with.

 I mean  I learned  a  new thing this  New Years day.  It  is  taking self portrait in my smart phone.  This smart phone makes me feel pretty dumb at times and this New Year's day  its  smirk  made  me  feel like... I want to try  to shape up.  Really..

 You can say, out of a zillion resolutions I  make around this early January days,  becoming a  bit  more tech savvy is  one of them.

 Talking about using the smart phone for taking photos,  I mean taking my own picture  I had to take  at least  30 shots and out of them only a couple  came out okay  good. This one I like best.

As I was browsing through my favorite blogs I came to Sally's site.  She is having this cool project of Focusing on Life . Taking self portrait was the very first project.  .

It makes sense.  Everything starts from within, within thy self.

I was pretty happy to find that out.  How strangely thought waves link.

Beautiful!! I love that shade of magenta, oh so flattering on so many. I swear I've bought the same shirt twice almost. If it makes you feel better my daughter, who was about 18 months at the time figured out how to create email folders on my iPhone before I knew it was possible

I have to agree with you - trying to find just the right distance and angle for taking a self portrait was an "eye opening" experience! Beautiful self portrait!!

I too am smart phoned challenged... I can't figure out how to get pictures from the phone to the computer other than emailing them to myself.. I'm sure there is a much easier way! I haven't tried taking a picture of myself with mine... You look lovely in your picture!

What a lovely smile! I'm so glad you jumped in and joined the challenge! I'm hopeless when it comes to technology. I still carry a flip phone!

Ha! I agree ... smart phones can make you feel kinda dumb sometimes! Great self portrait!

I have a whole folder full of discards before I settled on one to post. I think this will be a fun journey for all of us for the year!

You look beautiful, Dita! Pink is definitely your color and I can't believe that you took your photo with your phone! The pic is so crisp and clear. Definitely, nailed the self portrait prompt!

Tanya said...

What a great picture. You have a beautiful smile.

Claire said...

lovely photo! and yes, it's a real nack getting the right distance - my teenage kids do it first time though... :o)

Smart phones are making people dumb is what I think. I mean, if they do everything, then what will we do??

I only recently got a smart phone after a lot of resistance. Am liking it, but not doing much with it other than email and some photos.

I love your picture, you have such a happy smile :)
