This is........


..............a photo of myself in a mirror with a favourite accessory! I took this photo late Sunday afternoon after I had returned from my second walk of the day, this last walk was 70 minutes long and 8900 steps which a pretty good effort up and down hills, along roads, grass and kilometers of sand so please excuse the revolting hair and my general dishevelled state. I decided my camera was to be my favourite accessory other than my pearl earrings which I wear everyday. I have since taken 15 more photos in various mirrors around the house for this weeks meme suggested by Jhoanna of One Red Robin, me thinks I don't really like photographing me!! Now just as I clicked the button for the first photo who should appear in the shot but Dear Husband with hands on hips calling me for a BBQ dinner that was ready for eating, so I guess he is my favourite accessory! Does he count? View the many other participants post for this week from the list at Three Buttons.


This photo I am sharing with you was sent to me by my friend who celebrated his 91st birthday this last week, I suggested to him he should go out and treat himself to something to celebrate his special day. Hence the photo emailed to me, he bought himself the big new flash attachment and he wanted to show me how big it was. He quite innocently went into his laundry and photographed himself in a mirror with his newest accessory, maybe it is his favourite accessory now. My friend has been a passionate photographer most of his life and began a photography club in 1953 in the country town where he lives and was a very successful exhibitor in it's hey day. If I have as much zest for life and passion for my hobbies at 91 life will be good.

i love both the photos - it's lovely to get a glimpse of you.
i have to say that i love the second photos - look at those hands - they have so much character. it's so good to see someone 'alive' and living life at 91.
cheers
