Photo Blogging Challenge – Selfie (September 2017)

As of August 2017, humans take somewhere around 93 million selfies per day. The average millenial will take more than 25,000 selfies in his/her lifetime. I'm definitely not a millenial, and if there's a trick to taking flattering selfies, I haven't figured it out; a phone camera lens in close proximity to my already angular face is not a recipe for success. So I generally turn my back on the whole idea of selfies. So in the spirit of the photo blogging challenge, I got creative and used some old school methods to craft a handful of self-portraits for September.

Photo Blogging Challenge – Point of View (July 2017)

One fun approach to this month's theme would have been to assemble a series of photographs emphasizing the position from which each was taken. Another option would have been to photograph one subject from many different vantage points. I chose to make photographs reflecting my connection with nature, since, over the years, I've found that being in nature is essential to my well-being. A growing body of research shows my experience is not unique!
