Project Photo Me
Today I was invited by my flat mate to go with her and her friends for a picnic. This was a very different picnic than the usual ANZAC Day picnics I have previously been to.
As my flat mate is Indonesian, today’s picnic had an Indonesian theme. We had a steam boat picnic. There was a gas burner in the centre of the picnic table where all the ingredient were place and when the soup was ready we all helped ourselves to the yummy contents of the pot and it was very delicious indeed.
Half way to where we were going I realised I had left my SD card in my computer at home I so was not going to be able to take any pictures. Doh!! Lucky for me one of my flat mates friends had a spare SD card. Very lucky indeed, I was not sure up until that time what to do with myself without being able to take photos. I was feeling a bit lost.
Later that day we went to see the Blow Hole in Kiama. Unfortunately it was not doing much of anything. Possibly because it was low tide or because the wind was blowing in the wrong direction. I said may be it was because the blow hole needed Viagra. Lol.
Then that night we went back to one of the friends places and we had more steam boat. So glad I accepted the invitation to go. I hope I get invited to the next steam boat picnic.
Project Photo Me
Wow, I can’t believe I backed up from yesterday’s swim with a 14km walk today. First time around the cove was easy, the second not so easy. Half way around the second time I didn’t think I could do it. Lol, too late to change my mind.
Problem was the car was on the other side of the cove and unlike my swim yesterday where I could have just stopped at any time, today I had to make it all the way back. Of course I did, or otherwise I would not be here writing.
This photo is of me feeling very weak at the knees and in desperate need for some water. I have a long way to go yet to get to being able to run a 42km marathon. But it is a great start to getting myself fit and healthy.
This photo is also a part of a series called “Project Photo Me” which I have only just started, where I take a photo of myself everyday in different situations. My concern at the moment is that most of the photos will be of me in my work uniform at work, which I thought might be quite boring. I guess time will tell how interesting they all are. So for now I am taking photos on the weekends rather than every day. The idea is to ask other people to take my photo rather than taking selfies and post photos how I look and am, rather than picking and choosing photos I think might make me look my best. Hence I have not made most of the pictures public at the moment only this one. As I become more comfortable with the idea I will begin to make more of them public.
I would be interested to get the thoughts of other people on the idea and whether I am just being overly self-critical of myself and much too worried about what other people think by not posting more of the pictures. It is only new to me and I guess ultimately the thought behind the idea is that this exercise has me get over myself and my fear of what others think. So what do you think?
