Self Portrait Challenge

My be brave challenge for today is to take a self portrait. I bought this camera so I could do some portraits like others do for the self portrait challenge. I have the same camera as Misty Mawn and she takes wonderful pictures. I think its time to start exploring what I can do with it. This weeks theme is clothing. I decided to take a shot of myself in my new pajamas. It is very foggy out so I tried to capture some of that. The pj's are a very soft cozy type of flannel. When I touch the fabric I am given instant comfort. I like it when clothes can do that. It looks like I got more of my head than the pajamas but thats the way it goes. To see more self portraits go here

This will be my last Be brave challenge. I did it for the whole month of October and really learned a lot. I accomplished so many things that are really amazing. I won't stop doing scary things but my focus will be elsewhere. The 100 day reality challenge is bravery enough for quite awhile. Plus I am doing NaNoWriMo again and that starts tomorrow. This was a great experience, I really suggest you all try it

Happy Halloween

Believe it or not I do know its Halloween, Everyone else does such a good job with things on their blog today than me. I have been so busy that I have not gotten around to it. So I hope you can get around to other blogs to see all the fun. I did manage to doodle this little witch last night. She has her broom and is ready to travel. Have a great night.

The little witch is cute, and I love your self portrait. What kind of camera do you have? I'm sort of doing some info-gathering and hope to buy a new one in the next month or so.
