Cover Your Eyes

If you are not stout of heart and of strong mind you may wish to miss reading this post!

As I explained a couple of weeks ago I needed a photo of my self for my web site, blog posts etc. and as I haven’t got any descent ones I decided I ought to go and get one taken. The problem is I hate photos of myself, I’m sure I don’t look good in them, I much prefer to appear as a big silvery blue dragon. But as I really can’t hide as a dragon forever here are a few of the results! (some of the better ones!!)

I like this one best as an author photo even though it’s black and white

I think any of these three could work as well πŸ™‚

Having some spare means I won’t have to get in front of that camera again for a while, for which I am grateful!

  1. Lindsey – it’s you! They’re all great pictures and I agree with you about the black and white one. Monochrome somehow has greater clarity than colour. Well done on taking the step to reveal the real you. πŸ˜€

  2. I agree, Lindsey, I love the black and white one! And if it makes you feel any better, I dislike pictures of myself, too. I think my rose picture suits me just fine, or the drawing Hazel did for me. If only I could get away with using that instead of a regular photo… πŸ˜€

    • Thanks Kay, It actually wasn’t quite as bad as I thought it would be and the pictures are growing on me… slowly! πŸ˜€

  3. Lovely honey! I think you look fab, sweetie…but I agree for serious author stuff, I’d go with the black and white one! πŸ˜€ xx

  4. Thanks Sophie! that’s really kind of you, I don’t mind them as much as I thought I would and I do think I look kind of authory in the black and white one πŸ˜€

  5. Excellent job. They are all great! Although the dragon is cool, that dragon has nothing over you. You look great. πŸ™‚

  6. Oh come on! You look great in all of the photos! In fact, I find the photos very characteristic of you!

    Happened upon your site via a contest. So…after reading a few of the posts and articles, I am now a new fan! I picked this to comment on because of common ground. PHOTOS…eekk πŸ™‚ But I must say, you pulled it off marvelously! You, my new friend are braver than I. And that stands for a lot πŸ™‚
    I will be dropping by more often!

    • Hi Jeanne, really great to meet you!
      Yes photos! I hate pictures of me, but I have to say the experience wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! πŸ˜€
      Thank you for stopping by and becoming a friend, I look forward to hearing your views in future πŸ™‚
