When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea thou shalt lie down and thy sleep shall be sweet... Proverbs 4:24

It is almost midnight here and it is time to say goodnight. I think am running out of ideas for my self portraits:) This was not as easy as it looks...I had to run to the couch in 10 seconds before the timer went off and pretend I am zonked out...I did several of these that did not turn out before I realized I had the lamp too low over my head...this was the last try and the only one that I liked. I did not use flash but just the existing light.

    Shhh ... I will type quietly, I don't want to wake you up : ). You do such good SP's and new ideas will come up, so don't quit. You need to buy a $20 remote to fire your camera so that you do not have to get into position in just a few seconds. I love my remote!!! This is a wonderful SP, I love the soft lighting and the nice looking quilts.

    I am calling the Theater Guild right away. This is an award winning performance. In 10 seconds you managed to relax enough to look as if you were sleeping...not an easy task. Splendid shot, Andrea.
