This selfie was taken last fall at our favorite place, Arrowhead Lake, a place that feels like home to me. Somehow, troubles seem to roll off my shoulders the moment I get out of the car at the lake's parking lot. I go there whenever I need to decompress.
As I write this, it is a year later during the dog-days of summer, and I'm already figuring up how many more times I can go there before winter sets in ...
I like this picture for a couple of reasons. I have very few pics of me that I like. I'm terrible about closing my eyes just when the photo is snapped, and the sunglasses take care of that problem. I also have a aggravating habit of either not smiling at all, or, grin some sort of contorted smile. Here, my smile looks normal.
Hubby has a problem of never smiling while showing his teeth. In this photo, he has managed to do so. Win-Win!
I wonder how many more years it will be before we can manage another favorite picture of us?
What about you? Do you have trouble taking a good photo?
