Get In Front Of the Camera

I have been thinking a lot lately about my next birthday...Now, I am not a fan of cosmetic surgery, and never want to end up as someones punchline about "if my face were any tighter, then....well nevermind. "I" am going to grow old gracefully...Laugh lines only show that I have laughed a lot in my life.
So anyway, about that next birthday..I will be...50..There, I said it..50. Well 50 is the new 40 right?? Or something like that. To tell you the truth?? I dont feel like I am going to be 50. What am I suppose to feel like?? I have more wisdom than I had at 25, if I walk out of the house without any makeup on...who cares!! I certainly don't. I dont worry about what other people think about me. I know who I am. I have accomplished so much, with more to be accomplished.
So where are all of the pictures of me?? Oh yea, "I" am always the one in back of the camera. So now it's time to get in front of the camera. Before it all goes "SOUTH"...
For those of you who are the picture taking historians in the family...Dont forget to include yourself. If you cant get anyone to take your picture...Get a wireless remote for your camera. Take them yourself, and include yourself in that family portraits...I went deep into the woods behind my home today...Dragging along my camera on a tripod and a wireless remote in my hand. The lighting was fantastic. And it was cloudy and dreary. The next time I come into the woods, I will do it when the sun is spilling through the trees. Now that light is probably fantastic!! Get in front of the camera...Only you know how you want to see yourself. Me?? How old am I going to be?? I am 29.99 plus shipping and handling...


This me..4 years old... Even then, I had to have the camera...

Hey... the "word verification" for this post is spelling out "puriest". Is that a form of "pure"? The most pure maybe??? Well that's awesome!! Does anyone else try to read those crazy letters and make words out of them too??
