I have been finding solace lately in going into my bedroom, locking the door, strategically opening the blinds enough to let light in but not enough to flash the many dog walkers that pass by, and shooting a self portrait. The blank white wall used to be my enemy as I always wondered how I would make it different enough from portrait to portrait and how I could distract from it. But lately, when I feel like I'm doing the same thing over and over, oddly enough I find myself back here, brainstorming, hair flipping, using my 10-second-click-and-dash timer, and just enjoying the solitude of 30 minutes with my camera. Life is so good, and moments like these truly let me breathe it all in.
