#myselfiescrapbook 1

http://akinabridalcouture.com.au/products/la-sposa-millar/ Wandering around the internet I found myself inspired by a hastag, #myselfiescrapbook. I’m not entirely sure why it’s caught my interest but suddenly I’d got out my pink camera and I was off!

go All the original blog posts from the organisers of the hashtag are gone, so all that’s left here is my little effort.

April 22nd

The first three prompts: feet, what I carry and my hands.


I was a bit tired after all my sudden activity! I do have good reason for this; I’m two months into recovery from surgery to remove a metre of inflamed bowel (a.k.a. doctors decide I have Crohn’s Disease not ulcerative colitis after 18 years of misdiagnosis) and an 11cm ovarian cyst (oh, take them both, I don’t need them any more and I am NOT coming back for more surgery!)

I love this #fromwhereIstand prompt, I think I’ll use it again.


April 26th

More #fromwhereIstand as a prompt so I took some more photos while I was out today. The feet belong to my wonderful husband, Ian, not some random person’s feet I just happened to have in the shot!


April 30th

Prompt #3 was about comparing four of something. I’ve not been as active with the camera this week, so I scoured my photos for previous selfies and found these to go with one from last week.


I loved that pink pencil! I was using selections to practice selective colouring and also following a daily photo prompt and this was one of the first attempts at using the timer to photograph myself.

I didn’t actually finish the prompts, but I enjoyed my first foray back into the world of digital photos and scrapbooking. I’m planning more!
