Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust... Psalm 143:8

I was very mad at myself, this morning because I forgot to recharge my battery last night for my camera and it went dead on me this morning...then my back up battery was also dead ... However, I was freezing anyway and it gave me an excuse to go back in the house to get warm:)

I apologize for having to resort to posting my last self portrait that I did yesterday morning, that I shot underneath what is left of our weeping willow tree. It is sprouting against all odds after it got knocked down from a wind storm last October. If you notice part of the limb which looks like an elbow is hanging in the air as if in limbo:) (which is how I felt when my batteries went dead this morning. LOL) I wish I had allowed more space for my hand that is going out of the picture but when you shoot a self portrait...much of it is estimating since you can't see yourself ...I am still waiting to shoot the perfect picture which hasn't happened yet:)

Update: The good news is that later I discovered one picture that I shot this morning before the battery went dead didn't turn out too badly but I am going to use it for something else other than in my light series which I will be showing soon....
