    .......

    Just waiting on Tatiana to get her hair done :)
    and all the rest.

    Oh, I was just kidding rolleyes1.gif

    The reason why I didn't take any SP's is that...hmm - let's change the subject mwink.gif

    but also, now I don't have a tripod because it broke and it's in the repair shop.

    However, because I don't want you think that I'm ignoring this challenge, I found one from 2 years ago

    Here it is

    Oh, and here is another from last spring in Spain

    Hang on Lucy,
    I'm looking for a link to help guide you.
    I'm awful at giving any kind of tech-like directions. Trust me, you want it from the people that know what they are talking about.

    If you have no other way of uploading your photos, then attachments will work but you are limited to only one attachment per post.

    How to attach
    or
    here

    A better way if you have a place to upload your photos like SmugMug:
    Posting a Pic on Dgrin

    Also this post here from this thread

    I hope that helps you.

    Also from a previous DSS:

    Gotta tell you a funny story about this self-portrait.

    Getty Images picked it up from Flickr and asked to license it. Once an image is available for sale on their site, they keyword it. You can imagine how it felt to look later and see they chose "tired" and "balding" as keywords!eek7.gif

    But that pain is gone today. I just found out some ad agency in Australia bought the photo for $1,300 for a direct mail/brochure campaign!

    That almost made me spit out my coffee:)
    I can only imagine how you must have felt--but here you go, now you have$1,300 in your pocket clap.gif, that is awesome news.

    If it makes you feel better, Getty still refuses to take any of my shots, though I try every month. bastards. lol.

    LMAO, well, at least you are getting paid to be called names huh?

    This has always been one of my favs from the challenges. I still love it and I'm not quite sure why. It just works.

    I haven't done much for self portraits, so this is mostly for fun.


    This is on of me Mt. Monadnock. I climbed up in the dark in order to be on the summit for the sunrise.

    This was an unintentional self portrait. Once home I noticed I could see my self in the eye of the Canadian Jay. For a closer look, check out the link after the picture

    Don't tend to shoot SPs.
    Here is one from an earlier challenge and a new one from yesterday - I wanted 1 for this challenge & to try merging it with Dwayne Oakes' woodland processing techniques. If I was actually photogenic I might like it. :D

    hmmm... been thinking hard about this one... Being someone who tend to shoot beauty in nature, I tend not to do SPs. It's just more fun and safe for me to be behind the camera than in front. That being said, there are a couple shots that I could submit...

    Not certain if they fully count as Sp's, but they do contain personal body bits mwink.gif

    Hi Everyone,
    Thank you so much for participating.

    Obviously the mini challenge is now closed--or was as of 8:00 a.m. this morning.

    Give me tonight to go over the entries again and I will post the results in the a.m.

    Thanks for making this so much fun for me.

    Also, I mentioned in my original post that I too would take this opportunity to get a new SP. Well time got away from me and I tried to combine the Mega challenge "emergence" and the mini SP and managed to botch both:)

    I wanted to take a shot of a polaroid camera as an image started to "emerge"/appear from the polaroid shot. Had lots of tries and well it just wasn't good enough for the mega, but I was happy with the funky little SPs of me and my daughter.

    So here they are as promised.

    See you in the morning.

    fwiw, I enjoyed both of those Sp's and either of them would have made my top five list out of the mega gallery choices...

    I'm still working in it, but mine all seem to come out the same. Nothing different or worth while. The innocence or knowledge kept me busy, maybe I'll have time for this one now. I LOVE the ones posted so far. Very good!
