Photograph Sunday – Selfie


My gardening, gum boots selfie

This is me.  Donning second hand gum boots and very old work clothes (jeans once belonging to my husband and a jumper I have owned since I was 16).

This is a real, non photoshopped self portrait, set amongst my beloved garden. 

For years I have wondered the potential harm we create for our growing daughters, when they look into the mirror then compare what they see against their mother’s highly photoshopped portraits, at the same age.

Something to ponder (or not) over the weekend.

    • Thanks Julie. 🙂 I guess it is an occupation hazard – I believe it is my responsibility to be concerned about the potential harm photograph digital enhancement has on children and women. At least I have control over images of myself, so my daughter in years will see exactly what her mother looked like.
