Love covereth all sins...Proverbs 10: 12

Giving myself a hug of love
To warm fingers in their glove
Cause' I was chilled to the bone!!!
Oh how we moan and groan
When the weather gets colder
With snow and wind....
Especially as we grow older...
We feel it more on our skin...
But I can still remember
Icy hands e'en back then....
For this shot in November.
Maybe I'm in my 2nd childhood!
Is that bad or is it good???

Poetry by me, AJP

Actually I did a series of self portraits for the earlier Halloween theme, Trick Or Treat and this is a version that I didn't enter for that theme.. I really got into it when I look back at these practice shots that I did, but was just glad that I wasn't caught in the act because I can't do self portraits if anyone is watching me... It really was cold outside and those skeleton gloves felt good on my hands...

Here is another version with a different expression and pose for the earlier Halloween theme:

    Perfect for the theme!!! I remember the previous version that you posted for another theme, it's good to take more than one pose to perhaps be useful for other themes : )

    I love the cute expression on your face and you are right about SP ! I'm finding they're not that easy to do. My Granddaughter is very patient with me ! (:(: This is another good one Andrea !
