i ♥ faces ~ week 15 - self portrait

Here is my weekly entry for the www.iheartfaces.com contest this week. The theme this week is “self portrait". I was like everyone else... not super excited about the theme this week. I am entering a picture I took about a month ago. I was in my kitchen getting dinner ready and I saw the camera sitting on the counter and grabbed it. Do you ever get that itch to just take a picture? Since nobody was around, I took one of myself.

week 12 ~ pouting *4th place
week 11 ~ no flash
week 10 ~ green
week 9 ~ creative crop *8th place

Oh yes, I can appreciate that urge to create, to make something noteworthy. My urges do not usually result in such gorgeousness! Love the B&W, the blown out background, the one visible eye...just love it.
