4 Self-Portraits - 4 Ways {Photography Challenge}

On our way to a get together, my husband needed to stop by a gas station to get something. As I was sitting in the car and putting on lip gloss I saw that the mirror works as  a fine frame: There I was, diving into my purse, looking for the camera -  a snap hot!
Welcome to the first 4 Ways Photography Challenge!
4 Ways Photography Challenge is a monthly creative meme
where we wish to challenge you and one another in finding
4 ways of photographing the monthly themes:

April 25th:  4 Self-Portaits - 4 Ways
May 23rd: Motherhood
June 20th: In My Town
August 15th: Capturing Negative Space

4 Ways is hosted by 4 friends - all photo enthusiasts,
who wish to share the joy of finding new insights and skew angles
in photographing the world around us,
embracing everyday life with a camera at hand.

4 Ways Photography Challenge is open to everyone!

The April theme is
4 Self-Portraits - 4 Ways
Baking mud cake and tasting the frosting - well - a few times ... yum! Having the round taste of chocolate in my mouth - that brings a subtle smile on my face! I edited the photo using the posterize-function in PicMonkey, and adding a vintage effect on Pixrl Express.
Evening tea and some quiet time ... dwelling in the dreamy landscapes far away ...

4 Ways Photography Challenge is open to everyone:

 Come and join us by linking your self-portraits
in a blog post or Flickr-link below.

PS. Self-portait can be anything
- a shadow, a foot;
any representation of you

    1. Oh my - I love your self-portraits Yolanda! The joy of spring, life and living seems to be popping out of your pictures right in our living room - lovely! Such an artistic touch in them - the grey, faded, naturally muted background of the trees makes your beautiful red hair and purple outfit stand out. The shadow works so well ... Creative, wonderful self-portraits! Thank you for linking to our 4 ways!
