Over the years I've developed a fondness for silly pictures. In previous seasons of my life I would have resisted the request to have my silliness captured in a photo. It wasn't until about five years ago that I asked myself why?
The answer … I was scared.
The next logical question was ... scared of what?
The answer ... being vulnerable. Ouch!
At the time, I thought I was a brave and confident person but it turned out I wasn't.
After having this conversation (with myself) I decided that the next time taking a silly picture was suggested I would not resist but cooperate. To be honest the first few times I did resist internally but cooperated externally.
Fast forward to present and almost every time I take a group pic we end with a crazy pose. Some of my FAVORITE pictures (I've taken or had taken over the last five years) are silly pictures. Here are a few pictures I took in October.
Lookie there, a group of lovely ladies on a weekend getaway. Very respectable!
This ain't our first rodeo!
What’s that? You don’t go to Nashville, rent a house
and take pictures in the tree out front?
So, the next time you are taking pictures be sure to include a few silly ones. They may become some of YOUR favorites too.
See ya next week,
