Self Portrait: Aging




It's hard to look at pictures of yourself
and see those signs of aging



that you try to ignore
when you look in the mirror (briefly).



So it's good to discover that RAW format
allows you to move the clarity slider
to the soft side.


It makes a multitude of sins
more bearable.

"The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune" and hidden within each wrinkle my dear, is a treasure of experience and beauty that no smooth surface could ever compare with.

I solved that problem by have a small antique stained mirror in my bathroom with a dim light.

Beautifully written, Meri. I find we need to look at the big picture and never let ourselves pick apart our aging features. Most other people don't judge us for our looks - we're so much more than that!
