This week at iheartfaces the photo challenge is a "Slice of Life". Which essentially is...a photo-journalistic theme where your image captures a slice of your life. It can be a photo taken of your own family, from a lifestyle session you’ve shot with another family, or any other type of session you can think of. Just make sure it has at least one human face clearly showing and that it is more of candid type of photo that shows off a bit of real life.
"Me and My Shadow"
So I picked this self-portrait that I took at the end of last summer when DH and I went away to Middleton Place outside of Charleston, SC. It was unusually hot for September and we were there for a long weekend getaway. We sat under the shade of a big oak tree trying desperately to cool off and I was playing around with the new camera that DH had just gotten me for my 50th Birthday ;}
This shot represents us in so many ways...DH is my shadow and I am his...always together, yet separate individuals at the same time. We always gravitate to the outdoors and find a quiet place to just sit and be still. DH always chooses a bench or chair and I always choose to sit right on the ground. Many times I have laid down and taken naps while DH watches over me. On this day we were watching the alligators and turtles in the Ashley River and appreciating the breeze as it came up off the river.
This is one of my favorite shots because it's simple and truly reflects us together.
