Can you see me down there (or up there), reflected in the lake? What fun!
It's been ever such a sunny day here, and we've been ambling for several hours down a dapped wooded valley.
Absolutely ideal for experimenting with a spot of self-portrait-ing, which is this week's art of living cheerfully task.
As it turns out, it's more difficult than you'd think to take photos of yourself.
I've finally discovered the timer function on my camera, and now have 10 seconds to position myself in an elegant and artful pose before the lights flash.
Haven't quite mastered it yet though, and plenty of them end up like this...
I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that it's best to interpret 'self portrait' to include pictures of *part* of yourself.
And that it's a whole lot easier to take photos of your shadow.
I know, I know, that doesn't count as 'self portrait', but really, after seeing just how cheerful these pictures were, with my pretending-to-be-a-relaxed-otter pose, I think I might just leave it to the professionals (or at least people other than myself).
I'm absolutely tickled pink with these pictures of me floating in a lake.
(I wasn't actually floating, of course, but standing on the edge being reflected in the water, before you start worrying about my sanity)
Good job there's another three days off work really...
