Photo Art Friday

Welcome to the April Edition of Photo Art Friday hosted by Bonnie, (Pixel Dust Photo Art). 

The optional theme this month was "Quirky Selfie's".
Let me just say up front that I am rarely in photographs because I'm usually behind the camera.  Plus I am so NOT photogenic at all.  I struggled a lot with even doing this month's theme at all.  It's just so out of my comfort zone.

So tonight I took a selfie in my craft room which really didn't turn out all that great.  Then I fiddled around with the photo on BeFunky & PicMonkey and finally came up with the piece below.  I guess you can say it qualifies as "quirky"!


The cat is a neighbor's cat.  His name is Eric and he's over here everyday now because the "Crazy Cat Lady" made the mistake of leaving him food even though he's well fed and now he expects me to put food out for him every day.  Call me,  "crazy" but I'm happy to oblige him.

  21. Good on you, Ida :) I'm very far from ready to feature "selfies" on my blog. I admire anyone with the guts to do it (I think EVERYONE is unimpressed with their own photos). Have a great weekend!

    P.S. your neighbor's cat obviously has good taste LOL.

  22. Well Ida it really turned out so cute. You did a good job, and good for you in joining in. I was out of town, so missed it this month which is good because I also hate being on the other side of the lens.

  24. I have "learned" to relax and enjoy my time in front of the lens!! I sense Colleen will help you with that and be happy to have the pictures of you to go with her wonderful memories!!

    Do it Ida, I think you will be happy you did!!
