Me. Foto taken by El Jay Rey.
We are always more critical of our own work or fotos of ourselves than we are of other people.... at least, I am. I think El Jay did a fairly good job here for a 13-year old with little training, but my eyes are drawn to the crooked horizon line and my awkward hands. Both are foto pet peeves for me. Both can ruin a perfect picture.
Last week I got the letter from the SMUG heros stating that the dailies were coming to an end. The daily fotos in the Sisterhood's gallery do post (or did) in the daily community, but my images here do not show up there (when SMUG suspended my account that option disappeared and I didn't bother to try to fix it.) My images do, however, appear in the daily most popular gallery; will that disappear too? It is there that I go to to comment on other images (or I go directly to your pages.) It has not been my goal for quite awhile to be in the top 10 images each day. I post a (sometimes) daily foto for myself. For the routine. To push myself to shoot and to get quality work (which I'm not doing very consistently now.) I can't say I will miss the daily community--I'll miss my friends there--because with or without it, I plan to keep posting.
