When you're smiling, the whole world...

When you're smiling, the whole world...smiles with you? But what if you're smiling alone in a room? Is it like the tree falling in the woods - does it make a sound? Some say no. I say: if I'm smiling alone in a room then, YES!!, the whole world smiles too, even if they can't see me. Actually, the grins took me by surprise. I never thought I would do that in my self-portraits. When I realized what I was doing, I got all uptight again. Like Roseanne Roseannadanna (I had to look up that spelling!) says: "If it's not one thing, it's another." I had fun posing today too. I used a stepladder as a prop.

Details of the outfit:

  • $10 H&M dress, very silky, feels great (hence, the smile maybe)
  • Dorothy-red Hush Puppies shoes
  • black tights and thrifted necklace of pretty blue flowers with rhinestones ($1)
  • my ooo-la-la Gucci watch, a gift






Thanks for dropping by!

    BTW, I smile alone at times, and it REALLY makes me feel as if the whole world is smiling with me, in my heart!

  6. Your smile is so natural...and keep smiling alone in your room. It matters. I know that something as simply (and mechanical) as a camera invariably makes me self-conscious. My photos are always better if my husband or the grandson takes them.

    1. Hi Terri,
      I always feel completely dorky smiling alone, and then for the shoot above I realized I was showing teeth. Ack! So I kept trying to do it. I would much prefer having a human behind the camera, too, and have photos outdoors, but I'll keep trying. Thanks for visiting.
