Self Portrait Tuesday

Well it is about time I get back on the SPT blogwagon.

I love this months theme. Simple photo that is it. Thanks Lelly for being patient with me to get back into it.

This weekend we went to Solomons Island on the Eastern shore of Maryland. Yea military benefits again for having a darling little house on the water. We had a wonderful time and even got to go sailing.

I told myself that I was going to try to figure out a way to get myself in some more photos. So I came up with this way to stand next to the family in whatever they where doing and not look at the camera and then hold it out to get me in the photo. It worked! This was one of my favorites when we were jumping on the big rocks! you would never guess that I was taking the photo.

SPT I am back!!

Welcome back!

I have actually tried this exact technique before...but not with as much success as you. But I will keep trying.

Very cute Kristi. Sounds like a great time with the family!

Kristi, I am totally going to swipe this idea of hopping into the photo.

And I thought of you tonight during the election coverage--there, lost in that DC demographic of McCain 8%. Sniff.

always nice to have a way to know you WERE there!

Oh to be on a beach--sounds ideal, even though gritty.

Must try this photo technique--it makes it seem as if y'all had your own photographer following you capturing your moments at the beach. Cool.
