My Best Shot at Truthiness

Have you happened upon Sweetney's Truthiness gig? It all began with this post where she announced the Flickr group which triggered a whole movement of sorts and I've been intrigued ever since.

So, in the spirit of what another blonde, blue-eyed Tracey started, I offer nothing glamorous today, just me FIRST thing in the morning (pre-coffee no less) at my Truthiest.




If you have played along already I hope you'll leave a link to your Truthiness shot as well as whatever else that's true to you for your Best Shot Monday today. And, if you haven't shot the real you self-portrait yet, consider this a nudge to join in and reveal your Truth.

Good Morning Monday!

Can I just say how much I LOVE these truth photos? Gorgeous, you I adore these real photos. Raw, real and so true. Girls bonded, and the inner spark does shine through on that flickr page. So glad you did this too.

Here's my truthiness photo, (inspired by your tag, no less), and here's my Best Shot.
Have a great day.

Maggie said...

I totally love all the truthiness photos, so I suppose that it's only fair that I do my own. I will put that on my to do list. But for now, here is my BSM

Megan said...

my boys have taken a whole bunch of inadvertantly "truthy" photos of me...i'm not sure i let them keep them :).

Lara said...

chaoticfamily said...

Very real! There is something so "true" about first thing in the morning.

Perhaps will brave that one - one day...

Here is mine.

I don't have a self portrait, but the idea sounds like fun, although a little scary. I'll have to try it this week. Here's mine anyway ...

Maya said...

I need to do that. I agree that there's nothing more true and raw than us women in the morning.

One truth we're facing this week is that our little one is walking...and isn't letting anyone stop him!

Check it out here.

treasureseeker said...

Hmmm...truthiness can be cruel first thing in the morning and I have to say that usually only my husband is privy to that much truth!! Of course, he tells me I'm beautiful in the mornings so I will try to get a picture of what he sees...LOL!

Here's my BSM for this week. Its the second photo in Driving Lessons

Julie said...

No truthiness photo here--I'm well past the first-thing-in-the-morning stage at this point in the morning. Sigh. I wish I wasn't.

This is my best shot, though :)

emily said...

I hadn't heard of the truthiness photos before - I'll have to go check them out.

I've been missing for quite a few weeks, but here is my best shot.

Corey said...

You still look great first thing in the morning.

Here's my bsm... http://flickr.com/photos/divrchk/2370365412/

Sara said...

You are beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing!

Truthiness/Best Shot

lora said...

This is great! I'm SO in. Just give me a sec. My hair's a mess!

Blueberry said...

here's my best shot- my new little boy!

Andrea said...

I love your self portrait. I like ones that show our truths.

Last week, I did my first ever Self Portrait, which was harder than I thought it would be with a fixed lens, so it's super close up.

Here's my Best Shot Monday for this week.

Blueberry said...

ok, just when i thought i had this link thing down, i mess it up!
let's try again!

MamaGeek said...

Now THAT is a rather good truthiness shot! You're beautiful!

My shot is of my WEAKNESS.

Christina said...

I love your truthiness! I don't have one of my own to post today, but I will soon - I promise. :o)

My BSM(s)

alli said...

I went into the weekend with an idea of a BSM photo and never really got what I was looking for. But then after some cropping, I was happier. Just means I need to get serious about raising funds for my DSLR soon!

carrie said...

I have been following the truthiness photos, but haven't shot mine yet. It is a great "movement" that she started, and I'm glad you did it, too.

My Best shot is up, I can't stop shooting the girls and their sweet togetherness.

Brittany said...

Great Shot! :) Here is mine: BSM

Michelle said...

The truth is, I am tired.

Never That Easy said...

I love it: I'll have to think about being brave enough to be truthy. It's a great shot.

Here's my Best Shot for this week.

Lawyer Mama said...

Love these. Love this!

Kyla said...

This week, someone has the giggles over at my place.

kim said...

I didn't go with "truthiness" today.... but it gives me something to think about. Mine's more about sleepiness.

i think i'm still jetlagged cuz i definitely put the wrong url in my first comment.

trying again....here we go

ack!

Sarah-Ji said...

What a great idea! Although I have to say that my truthy reflection in the mirror has scared me on more than one occasion.

I get into some truthiness on my BSM post about something we've been struggling about in our home for a long time. Potty learning.

Kimberly said...

Oho! I'm not feeling quite that brave today. :) Maybe next Monday.

Bryce and his Dino

Jaimee said...

Great photo...you look amazing first thing in the morning! I should do my own, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that--maybe after my baby arrives!

Here is my best shot this week!

Mandaroo said...

I think you look great, Tracey!!! I took one in November for Wrapped Emotions, you can find it here and I added it to the group you mentioned. And, here's my BSM post....

in my neighborhood-BSM

Have a wonderful week!!!!

Mandaroo said...

Here's mine for today:

Wow, This is not easy. I am so conditioned to destroy picture of myself that I find unflattering. Here goes!http://www.flickr.com/photos/lizziemarie/2377525841/

lizziemarie said...

try again:)

Colleen said...

I've been seeing the truthiness everywhere. I'm sure I'll get in on it soon enough... but not today. My shot today is of my bookworm.

Sassy said...

I like the MAC version of myself better than my "version" of truth.
Here is my BSM, my girls in their truest form!

SISTERS

melody is slurping life said...

Here I go, doing what you tell me to do...again. :)

Here's mine. I plan to do a better one soon.

Best Shot Monday

Andi said...

Ok, so I am amazed by your bravery, but then again, you look FABULOUS in the morning...I have seen several of these shots, and still can not manage to do one for myself. Sorry. Maybe I will work up to that. I am also painfully sorry that I can NOT get the link thing to work. I must need a REMEDIAL version of the tutorial! I will keep working on it.
My post is a list of confessions...the TRUTHS that I hold to be self-evident as of right now.

HLB said...

That looks pretty fantastic, even without factoring in an early-morning discount (and nice lighting on the photo!).

My hair tends to do some pretty crazy modern art in the morning, I should start taking photos of some of the best ones. :)

In the meantime, here's my Best Shot, coincidentally featuring tulips like Lara's Best Shot for this week.

Golightly said...

I wasn't able to come out and play yesterday so I sharing my truthiness. and my only shot Monday.

Maria said...

Thanks for the heads up on the truthiness flickr group! Love the concept! Great photo! :D
