Show Me . . .

You! (Er, me.) Today's assignment from Robert (Thoughts of a Father) is to "show me yourself," so I'm taking this opportunity to share a few updates with the pictures. In this first shot I'm modeling the lovely necklace and bracelet George brought back from Ivory Coast, West Africa--a gift to me from Soro Guebessonguile and his wife Rachelle, an African family with whom he stayed for a week and who adopted him as their father. Cool (long) story.
September 9 was my birthday, and George baked a death-by-chocolate cake! Here I am photographing it . . .
And here's the photograph I took. (Despite the number of candles, I didn't turn twelve.)
I took this shot specifically for the project. It's a self-portrait of most of me, minus the parts that get me in the most trouble.
And these are my TOMS shoes. Cute, comfy, and one small way to help a needy child. Click the link to learn more!

Now I'm heading over to Robert's place to get a look at some of you!

I didn't even count the candles...I was too busy admiring the photo given that I saw you taking it without a tripod! Nice shoes too by the way :-)

Belated Happy Birthday! What a great series of pictures. Funny we are opposite in one way. I might let people see my head but I have too much shame about my body to let it show. Beautiful beads and beautiful birthday cake. You have a great smile too.

I would have done a partial picture of me (my first choice) too but I wanted to use my new lights and it was hard enough to shoot myself as it was. Your shots here are great. I love how you used many images to show us you. Thanks again so much for being able to participate.

I really NEED to know what that greeting card says in the background of the cake shot...
I, too, enjoyed the picture of your sturdy door. And if this writing/singing/picture takin' gig doesn't pan out, it seems you might have a future at QVC?? Love the beads...can't wait for the lengthy narrative.

Thanks - I'm glad you like the shots :) The owners of the coffee shop really liked them, too. They look really good framed. Now let's hope people buy them! :)
