The many faces of Robbie

One of the Yak-Yaks recently bought her first digital camera and asked the question if people loved taking pictures of themselves as much as she did. I answered an emphatic "No!"

Oh sure, I had tried because I loved the artsy pictures that Slomo used to post of herself. But, nothing ever looked good that I took of me. I guess I'm just too darn critical of myself.

A couple of weeks ago I had a work-related event to attend after work. Since I was all gussied up,  I decided to try taking some self-portraits again. Nothing was coming out right. Dark circles and puffy eyes at the end of a very long day didn't help much, I'm sure.  So I started making faces. Now, that was fun, especially that evil looking one at the lower right. :-D

Love the collage!  You can do evil looks great, but I still prefer the smile!

Top left kinda reminds me of Liza Minnelli in her Cabaret heyday (circa 1972). Lovely!

Robbie...YOU'RE BACK! YAY!  
Now wasn't taking pics of yourself fun! Sure, there are always those ones with the "after a long day, dark circles under eyes, survived at least 5 headaches this week" kinda pictures....that's what that little garbage can on the camera's for!

Love the pearls by the way and I think these are great shots of you! Look at those beautiful eyes!! My favorite is the "What the hell is that?" look [middle left]!

Fun Fun Fun! Love the digi cams!
