bright + shiny

the self portrait challenge for august is "get your shine on".

it was so fun playing with the giant mirror ball in different locations around the city on a sunny day. I caused quite a commotion standing in the middle of a field with the ball and my camera. see more self portraits with the mirror ball here and here. later, I thought of the whole sun-reflection-blinding-drivers-and-causing-huge-traffic-pile-up thing or igniting a forest fire. um, oops.

I love this photo because of its colorful, whimsical vibe. at the end of a two-week staycation, I have a super shiny feeling I hope to carry through the month and expand on. I want to do a self portrait every week to see if I can pull it off.

now that's shiny.
