Sunday Stills-Self Portrait

This week our Sunday Stills challenge was self portrait. Do you know how hard it is to be satisfied with a picture of yourself taken by yourself? For me, it's a big task. But it was the perfect opportunity for me to use my tripod and new remote (thanks Mimi!).

Here's what I ended up with.......






So you should have Wife overload now! But don't worry, it's back to cow and dog pictures. They are a much better subject.
And why was I singing "You're So Vain" as I edited this post? Hmmm...

Like the feather. My bullrider used to always have turkey feather in his hat.

You are very beautiful and did a great job with your self portrait! My daughter has those same boots with the yellow tops.

Excellent shots and the subject is pretty nice too. Your pictures came out great. Great colors and focus. Good job.

Whatever you should be on the cover of a cowgirl magazine!! Love the third one, down. My favorite has to be the last one, I love to war my boots with a skirt, or shorts. lol I lOVE your boots!! What are they! It's ok if I get a matching pair, cuz we are sisters after all!!
You are gorgeous!I would have taken your photos. I can't gaurantee you wouldn't have mysteriously ended up with a moustache...he he ask Holly?

Sabrina said...

Gorgeous!Love your eyes peeking out from under the hat! And Lil Man is a doll, too! Love the glowy quality of the pics (whether straig outta the camera or edited--lovely!)

You got it girl ..you may as well flaunt it! The third photo is stunning and sexy too! :)

K. T. Sparks said...

Very nice shots and they are all so great! You don't look like you are doing it yourself. I have one of those remotes and a tripod, but I have not been able to get the remote to work well for me yet, but I haven't spent much time at it,gave up when it got to be cold weather. Your boots are just the right touch of color and love the spurs! :) you are so dang cute it would not matter!

Faithful said...

WOW! Wife..beauty, brains and a sense of humor, too! How lucky can one cowboy get? Didn't you say you could cook, too? I love your boots and the cowgirl hat! Fantastic pics!

Andrea said...

great shots!! I love the one from saturday where little man was attacking you!! LOL!! Love ones with the cowboy hat!!
