Photo Challenge Day 30: Self Portrait



Self Portrait: Garden Selfie

This is the final post in my 30 Day Photography Challenge. It’s been a very good learning experience. I read somewhere that if you take a hundred pictures of something, you will learn 99 ways not to take a picture.

I believe this is an accurate assessment. I learn something new with each photo I take. I don’t think I will ever stop learning about photography.

We are finally moved. I am exhausted from it all. Days of moving, cleaning, packing and unpacking have taken their toll. We have also had several severe storms with tornados and high winds in our area which left us without power for an entire day.

It’s amazing how helpless we are without power.

The internet is finally installed, and things are beginning to get back to normal.

Our new normal, that is.

Being in a new home takes a lot of getting used to. I still can’t find all my clothes. Or my shoes.

I need a vacation.

I lost my cell phone charger for several days and have a million calls to return tomorrow.

I am dying to paint and decorate, but first the boxes have to disappear.

It’s a process.

On top of the move, I have been rowing on the lake two times a week with our local rowing club.

It’s been a welcome relief to be out on the water away from the chaos at home.

On the water, the only thing that matters is the perfection of your stroke.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t find your clothes.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t find your shoes.

Just the stroke.

“At the catch, row, drive, recover.

The sore muscles are minimal, the moving was worse. Makes rowing seem like a piece of cake.

Tomorrow I’ll have the new house tour for you, be sure and stop back!
