I ♥ Faces -- Week 15:Self Portrait

Call it simple narcissism... after all... I am a PRINCESS!!
But I have been waiting FOREVER for this week's contest!
Why?
Because I'm absolutely obsessed with myself
Because no one ever takes pictures of me and I don't own a tripod.
Which means...
I take it upon myself to boost my own ego.
I have to take all of my own pictures at arms reach.
AND...
Since I totally love making myself look awesome.
Since I like to change my profile pictures often, I have an entire folder full of "Self Portraits".
So when it came right down to it...
I was too busy staring at my own reflection to pick the best one.
I had a difficult time choosing since there are so many.
BUT...
The rules won't let me plaster my beautiful self all over your computer screen
I finally decided this one is FABULOUS!

The only alterations to this were cropping off an edge because no one wants to see my bathtub, increasing the lighting to erase a few imperfections and adding some warmth so it at least appears I have some pigment to my transparent flesh

It happens to be one of my favorites!

Go show off share your "Self Portrait" this week! I know you all have cameras so get to it!!
P.S. Dear Queen... there's that picture of you in the front yard after you "fixed your haircut" and frankly, if you took it by hand... YOU SHOULD TOTALLY ENTER IT BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME!!

No. You made me laugh. Now I'm going to have to spend the rest of the day reading your archives. And it's sunny here. It's never sunny here. Will tomorrow be OK for you?

Nice shot - I'm enjoying trying to figure out where everyone's arms are in these.

The school holidays are too long.
