Self-portrait No. 7: Love, Hope Peace

This one could have been called Focus or Vision or something like that. It was inspired by my friend and co-adventurer on this iPhoneography journey, Danielle. She made a beautiful triptych of her eyes.

My first attempt turned out teeny tiny because I cropped the heck out of a picture I already had on my iPhone. I like it - but it's pixelated and very small. So I attempted to take a picture of my eye. THAT is crazy difficult! I don't like the second pic as much as the first, but ... trial and error and try again.

I'm finding this November iphoneography project, the self-portraits, to be very difficult. Taking pictures of myself is almost technically impossible. I really do need a tripod and a timer. But, I said I would do it so I will keep on keeping on and make it so with what I have available. That's part of the deal with mobile art - to use the tools you have at your fingertips and make it happen.
