Self-portrait



I took this picture of myself because I was particularly pleased with the cheeky little flick my hairdresser had given to my white streak in front, and I wanted to have a picture of it to show her, so that she could repeat it. So I set my camera to 'macro', and got a reasonable picture of the flick, and a seriously revealing one of my life and laughter lines, both good and bad! I was surprised at how well it turned out, actually, and decided I would not be shy about sharing it. It was taken in June this year in my 79th year. The one in yesterday's post was taken three years ago.

I am impressed. 79 years old and a beautiful lady. I can just see the life left in those eyes! Really inspiring for me actually. Its funny - I have a WHITE streak in my hair in the front in about that same location - it is natural and it is not grey, but STARK WHITE - a patch of hair - have had it for years. I think it gives me character much like your "cheeky little flick"

Hi Judith. So happy to see you.

I think the flick looks lovely, and so do you - how lucky you are to be so photogenic, no photo of me ever looks like me - well, that's what I tell myself anyway.

I think that's a fair comment, Pauline, at least when I am in a good mood!
