Let me start by making this really clear. I am not great with pictures; I’m awkwardly trying to find a home for my hands, not smile too much and pose just so that my legs and butt look like two separate body parts. So when @sarahpsmart and I grabbed tickets for the Happy Place the emotional roller coaster began as I went from elated to petrified. I decided I would not take any pictures of myself and just “artistic” shots. Well let me say, it was really easy for my inner child to escape and play.
I started out by taking some shots without people, but by the third exhibit I had let my guard down and playtime commenced. I am not sure if it was the candies handed out in John’s Candy Shop but I had a bit more pep in my step. Sugar high?
Selfies are a fairly new phenomenon, and because of my age (aka old) the majority of my pictures were taken on an old fashioned camera, so when you were used to half the role of film not developing properly, and not great options to take a self photo, it’s been a bit of a learning/accepting period. Which I am still working on.
And before you judge (been there done that) remember that this a Happy Place where you can literally be into yourself and the beauty of happiness. Now go throw some confetti! Xo
