A Study in . . . .

Hello and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!    



     We are joining The Kitties Blue, from The Cat on My Head blog, for the weekly celebration of blogs and bloggers from across the world and across the species.

     To join in, get the Linky-Link code from their website– add it to your page– and enjoy the hop!


     Judging by last weeks photographs—which were very well received here and on Facebook—Mrs H and I thought we would do a series of portraits of yours truly, contemplating life, the weather and why the gamekeeper has so many mismatched sofa cushions?  OK so I wasn't actually considering the latter, but I think some more redecorating will be needed, MOL

     So without further ado, I bring you my first pose, 100% natural, nothing added or taken away. Just plain ol' me with a few stray hairs. As to what I was thinking about? Well, besides contemplating firing the new makeup artiste, the sky had brightened between rain showers and I was pondering if it was worth going out for a walk or should just stop indoors and wait for lunch.




     I'm pretty sure you can all guess which I chose, right?

     Anyways, even though the picture above is taken from the first—Mrs H practising her editing skills gleaned from the night school classes she's been attending—they do seem and feel a little different.

     I'm not sure which of these two I prefer, the close-up or the full body shot? Mrs H says she's for the close-up; which do you prefer?


 

     To see what our international blogging pals have been up to this week, be it wide-angle or close-up, please click the links below, and enjoy the Hop!

  2. They are both lovely. I have to admit that I did try the hair on your leg off my screen. Old habits die hard!

    1. I have to confess—on Mrs H's behalf—that I did check that hair too! Alas this iage does make my ear hair look white and it is more soft brown grey.

    1. Hi, and thank you. You can have both, for sure, and whilst we like the close up more, Mrs H rather likes the the Lady of leisure wide shot, too. MOL

    1. Thanks, and no choice needed if you don't want to. So hard I find sometimes to like just one when they are so alike.

  17. Although your gorgeous face is better in the close up, I prefer the full-body version as I find your little white footie very fetching.

    You have a gamekeeper?

  19. The close-up is good, because your beautiful face is so gorgeous. But in the full-body shot, We get to see more of you.
    Hmmmm. It's hard to decide...

    1. Thank you. It is probably too hard to decide unless one has a real love of close ups or wider shots.
