AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Self - Portrait

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ The best way to create a self-portrait of me is to gather together those things I love in the world around me:
sea, sand and sky
the moon
wild life
Nature's lights and moods
our cat Shadow
my beautiful soul mate
PhotoHunt #255 ~ Self-Portrait

Inner self-portrait
Fragments of my lifestyle
My meaning in life

What a great way to post a self portrait of you! I couldn't help looking at it without starting to wonder what I might use to depict 'me' in a similar fashion.

Have a super weekend.

Gemma -- this is absolutely wonderful. I love the idea -- I am thinking of what I'd do (I won't because my collages aren't professional enough to do it justice)...but I love that yours has described you and made me think about what would be "me".

Thanks for sharing and for the work I know it took to put this beautiful portrait together.

Great interpretation.

Looks like many of us are camera shy.
