..A threefold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4: 12

The red hat I bought on Saturday got quite a work out and decided to show it three different ways .I shot this self portrait with manual focus using existing light sitting by the dressing table lamps. I found out that a triptych is not easy but a challenge wouldn't be a challenge if it was simple to do.

Thank you so much Linda Houghton for the spotlight!
Thank you also Ioana Caravan for nominating this photo!

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...No, Donald, I was never a model. I think we learn how to pose and how not to pose just by critiquing our own work. Who knows us better than ourselves? The daily diary series helped me immensely and because it was a year long series it was beneficial...but there is always room for improvement and my work is far from perfect.
