I finally figured out how to get involved in the jjforum daily themes and the theme for the day was shadows. Well my lens is usually pointed at the sky so I didn't have many pics with shadows to submit. Then I remembered that the original idea behind Instagram was to take the pic with the IG camera and post it right away. Even then I still cheated and used my regular iphonecam so I could take multiple shots and choose the best one. Fortunately it was a full sunny day and I went out before noon so I could get a good long shadow. Then I realized my plain head in the shadow was kinda boring. I thought about undoing my braid, ( I have really long hair always tamed in a braid ) but that would be hard to get my hair to blow just right while shooting pics of myself, ugh! Then I thought about my hubby's bull rider hat. And it turned out to be the perfect prop. Big ol hat and sassy pose, I liked it. I was hoping y'all would agree. It didn't get featured but that's ok. At least I had a submission to contribute to the forum. That is a fun forum, very challenging and a great place to view really amazing photos. To get in just search the users for Josh Johnson, follow him and everyday he posts the daily theme and what tags to use. Ez pz! And fun! And great way to meet new people too.
