self portrait

I don’t usually make the cut in any posted photos here on my blog but I was VERY motivated this time though to post one :)

Two really great photographers in Alberta are holding a 3 week online mentoring session in January.  They are having a contest for one of the spots and the only requirement to enter is to take a self portrait with your favorite guilty pleasure.Blog5b

While I have many :)  for me spending $8 for a coffee and treat is the guiltiest!! :)  OK it’s not just any coffee it’s a cinnamon dolce latte with not just any treat but a cranberry bliss bar, Mmmmmmm.  So good.

Taking a self portrait is very hard, but trying not to eat the whole bar before getting a good in focus shot was even harder~ hence no treat in my final photo :)

Wish me luck!! :)  Though there are already some awesome entries and one in particular that made me laugh out loud!!
