I love that feeling of openness. The little voice in my head said quick turn here and I pulled into the parking lot near Viosport and walked to the back up a parking ramp. There I was surprised by my reflection. I am still getting used to this “me.”
When you have been overweight for over 2 decades. You are shocked looking at photos of the heavy you. I liked to think of myself as the Young Kim at her ideal weight and was always shocked at photos of the Heavy Kim.
Now, I am shocked at the Skinny Kim, cause she is not that teenager at her ideal weight. I am a mature woman, a grandmother, and fit. It is all a bit surreal.
Good Saturday, Mike and I shot Negaunee. The sun was at just such an angle that I kept capturing myself. So giving in I began to play with my reflection in windows. Oddly enough the second shot posted here is in the window of a portrait studio. I wonder what the photographer will think?
This tree is an old friend and I had to visit it while hiking in the Estivant trails. It is a sneak peak self portrait. I was having fun using flash and no flash while shooting upward on the hollow trunk. The tree is one of the virgin pines in the Estivant. Later that day I had a lesson in balance as we headed toward the Fallen Giant.
