“Am I worth documenting?” Maile Wilson from Shutter Sisters asks. The answer should be an unequivocal yes. But I often shy away from the camera. I hate it when my husband takes my camera and points it at me. More often than not, I find myself deleting the photos of me before they even hit my hard drive. And, to me, taking shots of myself on a regular basis seems self-indulgent.
In spite of all this, this afternoon, I set up the tripod and found the remote controller (still unopened in its box) and sat in front of the camera. I took a few shots, looked at the photos and realized that I had no make-up on, my hair was disheveled and I was wearing a shirt that showed my cleavage.
Here I am. Am I worth documenting? I hope so.
