I am standing by a portion of what is left of the old weeping willow tree where there is a part of it that projects from the trunk...It had been raining earlier tonight and it was 8:23 PM when I did this self portrait with a 10 second self timer. Smiling for the camera is sometimes not as easy as it may seem in a self portrait. I removed an earlier portrait for this challenge because it didn't look natural. I got in practice doing a lot of self portraits for the daily diary theme JPG had for a challenge some years ago and I think I deleted more smiling attempts than I kept:)

Thank you David de London for nominating my night self portrait on 7/26/2018. Appreciated!

    Thank you all for your comments. I think sometimes we are more critical of ourselves when it comes to self portraits ...This is one of the few that I actually like as I grow older for a smiling portrait where it doesn't look like my eyes are disappearing from smiling too much. I think it makes a difference also that there are no shadows in the face or frown marks from squinting in the sun because it is a night portrait with softer lighting. I am glad that the flash has a red-eye compulsory feature also as I remember too well how flash used to make dark eyes look red in dim lighting:)
