I'm new to the whole self-portrait phenomenon; as an adult, I've become reluctant to have my picture taken. I'm a simple person who doesn't like to bother with hair and makeup when there are so many other things that need to be done; a shower, moisturizer, and clean clothes are enough to get my day started. I like to think this relative indifference toward my appearance doesn't matter, but photos sometimes tell an opposite story!
While making dinner the other day, however, I noticed that the glossy surface of my sister's Brown Betty teapot was reflecting nearly everything in the kitchen, so I pulled out the camera, mostly from curiosity. You can see eggshells in a glass, crates of strawberries, the fridge behind me, and - me!
