This is a portrait of me and my husband from a selfie I took a while ago. We were out walking around Magoon Creek, which is about a half hour north of where we live along Lake Michigan. It’s a really pretty spot to wander in, with a wooded area, a creek and then a long strip of beach. It was late fall when we were out there, pre-pandemic. The sun was shining in our faces, the wind was blowing. It was a glorious day.
Later, after I stopped recording the time lapse of this piece, I ended up overworking it and lost whatever likeness I’d achieved earlier. Sigh. It happens. Just means I need to do more of these and more often.
