A Day in the Park 84/366

Friends who follow me on the social networks know about the struggle I had getting myself out there into the park wearing a dress (and using props no less)! The fear welled up in me, but I did it. First time taking public self-portraits with props. Continuing my quest to kick my irrational fears in the face, that's one point to me.

 

I was so nervous/anxious about the outing that I didn't realize I had left my remote at home, so I had to suck it up and go old school using the 10 second timer dash. That sucked, but I was not going back home to get it once I was in that park! I have to say that getting out of the car was the hardest/scariest part of the whole thing for me. Once I finally got out of the car, I felt a huge relief. Go figure.

    So proud of you venturing out for these photos. The last one is awesome. I admire your courage for you other self portraits series. Goofy outdoors I can do; inner-self exposed in abandoned spaces I can't do. Mad prop to you.
