Today as I was taking my photo for my 365 on film I noticed my reflection in the tv screen. I found the sunset light in the room quite fascinating and used my DSLR to try to capture this moment. While I often feel wrong or vain for taking self portraits I’m slowly learning and growing as a person, seeing that the act of creating a self portrait can be so much deeper than just appearances. That maybe it’s ok to value myself enough to care about capturing myself, as a memory of this time of darkness, great struggle, intense internal battles, pain, survival, growth, healing and looking for light.
