SPC - What I Wear 4

This month's theme for Self Portrait Challenge is "What I Wear". Since I spent Thanksgiving in Arizona, which usually seems to be very sunny, I thought I would post of a photo of me wearing my sunglasses. The last two days I was there, however, it was pretty doggone cloudy. Nonetheless I shall proceed. There's a good bit of sun here in north Texas as well, but the sun in southern Arizona is intense. I mean, it makes sense, it's a desert fer cryin' out loud. I don't know if it's the altitude or what, but the sun can be very brutal there, especially in the summertime. Got to protect those peepers.

I wish I had planned this shot better so I could have had a more impressive scene in the shades, like some mountains or some palm trees, but this was literally taken 5 minutes before leaving for the airport to come home. So instead you see my parents' front yard. There's always next time I guess.

To see what other are wearing, visit the SPC website.

I love it - I think it's very cool. Very Mr. Lennon-ish (wrong shape, but still).

This would be fun to play around with... You could do a whole travelog with the reflections in your glasses!

Love the burn out/fade out effect at the top. That's great! That's kind of difficult to do with a digital camera, isn't it?

m - That's a good idea!

a - with this one it just kind of came naturally when I increased the brightness & contrast. The area at the top of the shot was brighter to begin with.
