Focusing on ...me

Choosing a photo to represent myself was not easy.....




...so I chose this one. 
















But I liked this one too. 

These two shots don't seem to say a lot about my life, but rest assured, I can be seen here on the living room couch, whether I am watching television, reading a book or making jewelry. So I think they are proper self portraits.  

Be sure to visit the sponsoring website for more takes on self portraits The Studio Sublime.

  18. What a lovely smile you have. I have my spot on the sofa, too, where I spend most of my time except for when I'm on the computer. In the background of my photo was actually my tools. My stash takes most of a bookcase on the opposite side. I look forward to see what our next prompt is.
