If I were to create a Calendar..... 

And you were crazy enough to have the slightest of interest in considering getting one........ What images do you feel it would be more interesting for it to have??  

Would you like it if it has Chicago Images? Las Vegas images?

Get ready for the November Self Portrait Challenge Event: "Morning Story" - Come join us and at the same time enjoy everyone's submissions!! 

Find the details in the post below! 
This is the Event for our November Self Portrait Challenge: "Morning Story." What this means is the image you create should tell us what your morning is like... do you love/hate it? Do you sleep in or jump right out of bed? Do you exercise, eat, shower, run, rush your kids out the door... or something else? You get the idea... this can be humorous or serious, it's up to you. 

Here is where you enter your ONE "Morning Story" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST November 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.

Tips & Inspiration

Check out this gallery of really great "Morning Story" self portraits - they are wonderfully inspiring:

Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event, too, in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything. 

Thanks to +Annie Weibull for suggesting this theme, and to Lorena Masi ( for letting use her image in the header!

Thanks for the advice +Marilyn Benham .... and I am glad you like the photo.  As for as cloning or cropping.. .havent decided yet.  In this case, if I had to choose, I would probably go with cloning, but again, not sure.

Why when we show the world of black and white, don't we show both blacks and whites together.  I realize the concept is black and white photography, yet when we see photos such as this, the person looks unhappy.

Under Pressure

.... Right at that moment I realized what it was. I felt like I couldn't breathe; like if something was preventing me from being, like if something was asking, begging, wanting me to not be!

It took me a while to realize what it was........ It was everything else, and at the same time it was me!
