{31Stories} – Day One Friday 02 August, 2013

31 Days. 31 Photos. 31 Stories.

So I am participating in a Photo-A-Day Challenge for the month of August called 31 Days 31 Photos 31 Stories of My Favorite Things or aka #31Stories. 31 Stories is created by one of my blogger friends Beatrice Clay in which she created a daily photo challenge where you capture a month via pictures and it’s supposed to tell a story. I am never good at photo challenges but I want to commit to this challenge, as well as being able to consistently blog about it everyday.

I need to accomplish these two things anyways consistency on my blog and being more authentic so this #31stories challenge will help me with doing both. Learn more about the 31stories photo stories here and if you like follow the journey on Instagram/Twitter/Pinterest and use the hashtage #31stories to follow me and other bloggers who are sharing their photo stories. It’s chronologically capturing the month of August beautifully – just like my tagline promotes {blogging life beautifully}.

I am determined to complete my 1st photo challenge!

Day 1:Self-Portrait


So Let’s kick off August with a Selfie! Instagram’s frenemy of the social network. It seems like selfies are taking the picture world by storm with duck faces, sultry looks, sleepy faces, and my favorite mirror shot bathroom selfies. Ughh…

Selfies are usually considered narcassisitc and concieted, especially if the person make sure to post multiple selfies of themselves in mass quantities in one week (or day). I am actually not a great “selfie” taker. I guess that’s my inner hipster.

But I do take selfies sometimes, but they are more on the artsy-hipster aspect of my self-portrait. I like my versions of selfies because it’s more of a visual expression than a egotistical shot. Or maybe even a silly selfie…like the one I posted today.

Selfies can be silly. Selfies visual expressions of sharing myself without being “selfish”.

My selfies are for self-awarness not because I am self-conscious.

August 1 displayed the silliness of my selfies!
