#Project52 – Selfie

This week’s #EverydayProject52 challenge was the selfie.  It’s something I could certainly use more practice with, as I always seem to take 20 bad ones for each good selfie. So here are a few selfies I’ve taken over the last few weeks, that I’ve actually liked. The first two photos were taken with my phone, Read More …
