Prompt: Photo – a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.
This is me with my boyfriend Chris. I didn’t actually look at THAT many photos before settling on this one, because it just jumped out at me.
We are in Chicago at Blackbird in April, eating dinner with another couple (one of them took the photo). We are silly and having fun.
Why do I like this photo? It shows you ME. I am silly, I love to laugh and goof off, I have a very difficult time keeping my eyes open in photos, I have awesome shiny hair…plus the dinner was AWESOME and the Chicago trip was great fun. There’s another photo, taken right after this one, where we are more “normal” looking, but this one is better.
