friday foto fierce as a lion


I am not as brave as my grandson...but I am getting braver!
My Hubby loves to take my picture and I am always telling him "No!"
It has been over 30 years of me saying "No!" That's a lot of No's. I have never felt comfortable about how I look. I am also uncomfortable with people watching me while I pose for pictures! Ugh!
But...I not only posed with people watching for this picture ... but I am posting it with friday foto fiesta finish!!! I am in Culver City, California!
I have come a long way baby!!
For more Friday Fotos visit Candid Carrie.

Also, I haven't traveled anywhere lately but I am featuring some bloggers on Travel with Ronda who have traveled and one who lives in a place that looks like paradise! Travel with Ronda!Or Ronda's Rants on the Run! **Giveaway!**

You know, I don't like people watching me get my picture taken either. It's especially funny given the fact that I used to model. CRAZY.
Love the picture by the way!

You look like you pose for pics all the time! I'm learning that when someone wants to take my pic, just smile and hope for the best...there's no sense in fighting it!
I love it!

Fantastic photo of a beautiful lady :)
I am the same way....never in photos.
Glad you are overcoming your fears.

Nik said...

What a GREAT photo! I SOOOO know how you feel about people watching the pose...but you know something funny I noticed?...if you hang around for a few minutes - at least ONE of the group that was watching you will do the exact same pose you did. Not only did they copy you - but they look like fools too.

That always makes me feel better that I'm not the only freak out there posing funny.

Rhonda said...

That's funny! I'm always telling Leon "No" too, but I'm usually talking about something else....

lol!

Linda S said...

I love this photo! You look so happy! Can you bottle that and sell it?

Blog Stalker said...

When you don't let your picture be taken, you have no one to blame later when there are no photos to remember you by. so good you are getting better and that picture is great!

Have a great day!

I joke with my husband that if I ever go missing he'll have to post a wedding picture because, I too, refuse to mug for the camera.

I have to say, you have nothing to worry about. That was a gorgeous picture!

You go Girl!
It's always good to let go once in a while. Let your hair down, wear some high heels, drink somethine fruity! Hope your Friday is swell in CA!

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Congratulations to you for successfully posing for the photo: you look great! I understand completely as I still say "no", hence, no photos of me :-)

Karyn said...

I hate getting my picture taking, too. This is a fantastic picture of you! xo

Teri said...

First of all, you are beautiful! I know how hard it is to be the subject of photos sometimes, but I'll tell you what I told my photo clients for over 20 years. It's history, it's very important, and your family will love that you preserved yourself in time throughout the years.

Keep going for it. You look great!
