30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 1, Self Portrait

Thanks to Amelie Obscura for introducing me to the 30 Day Photo Challenge. I'm going to try and see if I can make it through all thirty! The list is above if you'd like to join me. :)

Since I was snap happy today, I decided just to go ahead with Day 1, which is a self portrait. I shot this with my iPhone and then put the lomo filter on it via Instagram. I don't generally like close-up shots of myself because *fun fact about Mo!* one of my eyes is larger than the other. Close-ups magnify this. It's SUPER obvious in baby photos, but my eyes slowly evened out the older I got. I've made peace with them, they are, after all, sisters--not twins.

[Day 1]

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! xoxo

@More Than Rubies: Do it! Do it! I'm afraid I won't be able to do it every day either, but we can try together. :)

@Alycia: Thanks!

@punkychewster: Yeessss! You noticed! :D Thank you!

@Chic 'n Cheap: It didn't occur to me to add people on Instagram, some social networker I am! I believe I am "pinkargyle".

Sounds fun! I would love to try this, but given my recent major fail in my photography class- I'm not sure how well I'd stick to it!
