A few years back (in the heyday of Flickr groups) I finished a couple of 52 week projects focused on self portraits.  I ultimately took on the 365 project after completing those, but no way could I keep those self portraits. How many times can you process a photo of your own face, you know? But looking back on those couple of years documented got me thinking I should pick up a self portrait project again to see how I age. I'm going to do a monthly portrait so as to not overdo the "selfies" and how much do we really change week to week?  So this is January... Am I the only one that makes funny faces when taking portraits?

Jan 17 2015 : jump : this was an interesting prompt for me today. A real challenge to be able to take a shot of yourself and jumping. I went down to the beach to see what kind of landscape was down there and actually ended up loving the fact that the mounds of sand covered in snow met the clouds and you could really not tell where One stopped in the other began.

It proved much more difficult than I had imagined, but I'm pretty happy with this outcome.
