Wow. I can hardly believe we’re back around to August. Like last year, this month I’ll be participating in Susannah Conway‘s August Break project. I’ll try to be here most days to share a photo or two and maybe a few words as well.
It feels as though so much has changed for me since last August, and in so many ways. Looking at the photo above I’m struck by the physical change I’ve made. I’ve gotten used to the body I see in the mirror every day – the one that is more than 60lbs lighter than it was last August – but this is the first self portrait I’ve taken in many months and it’s just so different from the way I’m used to seeing myself in photos.
This photo was taken on the weekend (not exactly August but that’s the great thing about the Break, there are no rules!) when I hung back a bit from the group during a photo walk in Wakefield, Quebec. I may share a few more photos from that walk in the coming days.
Oh and back for a moment to the subject of changes and things that are new, I’m not sure if I’ve shared here or not but I’m thrilled to be blogging over at Mortal Muses. It’s pretty exciting to be among the Muses – a group of photographers that I admire and like a whole lot – and to see the talent and creativity in the Muse Flickr pools. Lots of plans are taking shape at Muse HQ so watch for a redesign soon and check out/drop a few photos into the pools.
