self portrait challenge

boho's reflection, canon digital rebel xt

Self Portrait As... a flower.

The smile you see is actually me laughing at myself that I am doing this.

As Susannah has said to me on a few occasions, it is "pure fromage" (a sophisticated way of saying "really cheesy") but hey, I had fun! And I need a little fun because Boho has been far too deep into her head the last few days. Something I will expand on soon but for now, just trying to keep it light.

You can enjoy other Self Portrait's here.

I don't think it's pure fromage at all. Well, maybe a little, but I like it anyway. ;)

Boho, fun is good. :-) And see where being too deep in your head takes you, there might be some fertile creative ground there. It's all a journey. :-)

i'm with Darlene - i want to smother those cheeks with fairy kisses.... Boho as a flower - yes, that feels right: one that is reaching up to the sky and unfurling her petals, making the world a more beautiful place..... sigh. not fromage in the slightest :-)

I love this image--no way is it "fromage". The smile is light and lovely...sorry to hear that maybe your thoughts haven't been lately.

You are such a beautiful blossom, that smile radiates such warmth. Personally I am a big fan of the fromage, bring it on...

A very pretty flower you make! And if it made you giggle while taking the picture, then that's even better. ::smile::

If it's fromage, at least it's tasty fromage. You look lovely! :-)

I'm thinking that "pure fromage" must mean "really sweet and lovely" because that's how you look, truly.

I like the red and orange tones; I usually get that from bad lighting, but in your case, it works.
