I mentioned last week that I had a plan for getting more photos of myself with Kieran, and in fact just more photos of myself in general. A lifetime ago (Kieran's lifetime that is) I used to take an obscene number of photos of myself. It's rare for me to do that anymore unless I need a headsot for an online bio. Plus when I posted about our summer vacation, my friend Anne asked if I had any record of me with Kieran during that time. Sadly I do not. And so this idea was born.
In September I will be challenging myself and making the effort to "get in the picture". I commit to setting up the camera to take more self-portraits. I commit to taking arm stretched out photos of Kieran and I. I commit to setting up the tripod to do photo shoots with Kieran and include myself. I commit to handing the camera over to someonle else to get more photos of us two together. And I commit to not complain if said photos aren't perfect.
Would you like to join me? Just leave me a comment and I will add a list of all your blogs to my sidebar (if you don't have a blog I can add a link to your flickr account or other photo gallery). There are no real rules aside from making the commitment to "get in the picture" in September. This is not some kind of photo a day deal. As we all know I suck at those!
Feel free to snag the image above if you want to blog about this. I've also made a smaller badge that you can add to your sidebar if you plan to play along.
Here's the code you can use to add the badge
