The Willow, Magnolia, and Me

Oh happy day when I discovered via Cee’s Photo Challenges site, Carol’s Cheerful Selfie Challenge #1: CCSC is an opportunity to share a photograph you have taken, that you were in somewhere. Maybe even by accident or intentional. Here are her guidelines:

  • A photo of you doing something special. Boy I’m proud
  • Creating a memory. I was here doing this…
  • A photo of you in a mirror ( hair cut, new hat, should I get this dress?
  • An image where you only catch part of yourself (my toes get in flower shots more then I want.) sometimes it’s cute
  • Photo with you and one other person even a whole group of friends (screen shots of zoom groups count )
  • Just your finger pointing something out.
  • An I.D. Picture
  • Selfie from archives are welcomed
  • The Prime Directive is Have Fun.

Usually staying out of the picture is my priority when the camera’s pointed my way. But I love Carol’s idea of sharing a little bit of ourselves in our pictures. Here I am in my neck of the woods:

Photojournalism at its worst: caught red-handed reaching for the only magnolia on the tippy-top of this little sapling. No leaves or blooms were harmed in the making of this selfie. If only I’d had a tall companion with me.

Tomorrow’s another day. 😉

I know that’s a willow over my shoulder, but could that be a rainbow hanging over my head? Well it is of a sort. It certainly isn’t a halo. 🙂

  1. So happy you found yourself to my Cheerful Selfie Challenge. I’ve done the same thing stretching out for a flower photo. Now you can celebrate getting your fingers in the picture. Yes that must be a rainbow willow.
    PS I forgot to tell people to follow me so you can find me easier. I’ll do the same.
