Me Me Me

As I was digging around looking for a photo for Love Thursday, I read Stacy's Theme Thursday for the week and thought, hey, I love self-portraits as much as the next guy...why not head outside and click off a few? The one above is a crop of some I decided to shoot for my Love Thursday pic.

And then I figured I'd include a little list of weird things about me because I was tagged by Brown Eyed Mama for the meme. What fun! I haven't done one in a really long time so I thought I'd give it a go. Come to think of it, I may have done one like it a long time ago. Oh well, I need something to do to keep me busy while I am putting off all the stuff on my to-do list.

1. I have been taking self-portraits since I was in college.
2. I hate when my feet feel dirty.
3. I love The Grateful Dead.
4. I'm totally into self-help books (of the ethereal kind).
5. Hamburgers are my favorite food.
6. I usually learn best (although perhaps not efficiently) by making stuff up as I go along.
7. 75% of the time I shoot with my camera on automatic. And no, I don't consider it cheating.

These might not be too enthralling but 'weird' stuff isn't that easy to see in yourself. Maybe I should have asked my family to make a list for me. Or maybe not.

And to keep the meme rolling....I tag

Melody (Slurping Life)
Melody A. (the Hip Momma's Journal)
Jessica (Moving Pictures)
Sarah-Ji (shutterbug mama)

and I think you should have to add a self-portrait, just for fun! Melody already did one today which I might add looks a lot like mine. Too cool. Great minds Melody.

OK, I think I'm supposed to add myself to the list and have you do the same. So here it is-

The Strategist Notebook ~ Link Addiction ~ Ardour of the Heart ~ When Life Becomes a Book ~ The Malaysian Life ~ ~ What goes under the sun ~ Roshidan’s Cyber Station ~ Sasha says ~ Arts of Physics ~ And the legend lives ~ My View, My Life ~ A Simple Life ~ Juliana RW ~ Mom Knows Everything ~ Beth & Cory’s Mom ~ A Mind Forever Voyaging~ enjoying the ride ~ Jennifer’s thoughts ~ Mom of 3 Girls ~ Amanda ~ Don’t Make Me Get The Flying Monkeys ~ ExPat Mom ~ Just Jessie ~ Wilson Six ~Krisitn ~ Nuttier Than You ~ Shonnte ~ Summer’s Nook ~ Laura Williams Musings ~ Sher ~ Shanda ~ Seven QTPies ~ Mel ~ Skittles ~ Lady Banana ~ Momhood Moments ~ Business Mars ~ A Simple life ~ moms….. check nyo ~ Mommy’s Little Corner ~ Pampered ~ HappyHeart ~ Make Every Day Your Lucky Day ~ Thumbelina Creations ~ Ivonnardona's Creations ~ Jewellery Craft ~ A Bead a Day~ Useless Ramblings ~Candid Yammering ~ Green Eyed Mama ~ Mother May I ~

And hey, anyone else who wants to play along, I tag you too!

Great shot, Tracey! I love compositions like this - it adds a sense of mystery. :)

I always like to read these meme's, too. Fun facts!

Maggie said...

Great shot - I love the cropping!

I am also glad to see that someone else doesn't consider using the automatic setting as 'cheating'...I use it the vast majority of the time!

Thanks for playing along! The name of your blog caught my eye. I love catchy titles. Then I noticed that we have the same name. Do you like it? I was just wondering. I don't think you're weird at all!

love the self-portrait

Corey said...

I'm so glad you use Automatic so much. I've been feeling guilty for not setting my camera to manual more often. I love the photo of you, btw.

Megan said...

love the comp on your self-portrait. somehow, one eye in a photograph often seems to reveal more than two :).

love the photo. love the GD. love burgers. find myself sweeping the hardwoods nearly everyday so keep my barefeet clean. i also shoot mostly on automatic (when chasing a kid who has time to think?) hell no, it's not cheating! you've got vision sister!

Great minds indeed, sis! ;)

On the meme, I'm with you on 2, 3, 4, 6, and I now feel oh so free to frequently click my Canon over to auto. Thanks for the permission.

And thanks for the linky love.

Golightly said...

Great shot, I loved the way you cropped it. Maybe I should try that, maybe I would like them of me more...

Wow, I like the weird fact that you have been taking self portraits since college. Very cool. I like yours alot too. And I too use the auto focus and don't consider it cheating one bit. ;)

susiej said...

Tracey, that is a gorgeous photo. Thanks for the challenge... I'm up to it when I get back in town. Ditto, for me, on the ethereal kind with chakras, too.

Sarah-Ji said...

Love that self-portrait! I really need to do more of those...

I've played along, and my post is up now. Thanks for the tag! I also posted 7 weird photos for each 7 weird factoids. It was a lot of fun.
