7 Days: 1 {Winter 2010}

One of the (many, many) things that Bethany has gotten me addicted to is the 7 Days Flickr group. What can I say? She has good taste in cookies and TV and photos. (And many other things, but I’m too lazy to think further than three.)

This was Day 1’s photo and description:

7 Days: 1

I had a prenatal appointment yesterday and afterward, I was sitting in the lobby texting Noah to tell him how it went. A middle-aged guy was sitting beside me and asked, “Are you pregnant?”

“Yep, a little bit.” I replied.

He went on, “So, you look like you’re almost done!”

I laughed and shook my head, “No, I still have about four months left.”

I got up to head out to my car and he said, “Well, Merry Christmas!”

I wished him a Merry Christmas in return, but kind of wanted to ask him questions about HIS belly.

One of the main reasons that I love 7 Days is that it forces me to pick up my camera. I haven’t been feeling too inspired lately. It’s funny to me when I look into my photos folder because I can tell when I was suffering from depressive episodes. Photos during those times are few and far between. Then there’s the manic periods where I take photos almost daily. I’d kill for a happy medium!

I asked my camera-loving Kaylie if she’d like to participate in 7 Days as well, and she jumped on board right away.

7 Days: 1

This photo represents my spirit of Christmas because there is a little tree in the background.

I often let her and Liliana play with the point-and-shoot and make their own home videos. She’d drain the battery daily if she was left to her own devices.

Here’s to a great self-portraiting week-before-Christmas!

    I love the shot from your perspective! And why is it okay to comment on a pregnant lady’s belly but not on a guy’s beer belly?

    There is something inherently wrong with this.

    I just joined the 7days group, or tried to, we’ll see! Seems like fun!

    I had fun when I did 7 Days, but if I did it this week, my head would implode.

    Love! the shot of your belly. :)
