The camera doesn't lie, or does it?
I have been driven to tears by photos. You probably remember my misery about my race photos (back when I was able to do races). A couple of recent ones triggered an "I Feel Bad About My Neck " moment, because I tend to carry extra weight in my chin and I'm starting to see what I think are signs that I will develop the dreaded Turkey Neck (the horror). In other photos, I find other body parts to pick on: Arms are always a perennial favorite. Belly. Thighs. The usual suspects.
I had a couple of pictures taken today that I actually really love, because they're with my brand-new nephew. Yes, you can see some smile crinkles here, but I am feeling really happy to know that both he and my sister are doing well, and that I'm an auntie again. The other stuff doesn't seem that important.
I'm not going to say that I will never have another photophobic moment, but it sure would be nice.
