This is the story
I've received several very nice comments on the photo I used on my "I wanna talk about me" layout. Thank you all. I took that picture myself using the self timer on my camera. There is more to the story, though. I was working out of town last October for about a month. I came home on weekends but I was there Sunday night until Friday afternoon every week. After going to dinner with my co- workers, I would just hibernate in my room. One night I came in and looked in the mirror and thought to myself, "Gosh, I'm having a good hair day. I need to get a picture of this" LOL I considered taking pictures of myself in the mirror but the bathroom was just too small. I considered going out in the hall to see if anyone was out there to help me but discarded that idea quickly. I really didn't want my co-workers to think I was crazy. After all, I am the boss. Sanity is a good thing in employers. I spied the nice white wall beside my bed and proceeded to have a photo shoot. I put the camera on the bed and sat in the floor and knelt in the floor and leaned sideways and looked over my shoulder and just had myself a good old time. I actually got some pretty darn good shots. This was one of my faves. I got that timer thing going pretty good. On my birthday, the next month, I had a photo shoot in my front yard using the tripod and I posed in front of the long brick wall beside my garage. No telling what my neighbors thought but they don't work for me. ha ha. I am now a big self photo shooter. Love the timer.
