I Heart Faces- Self Portrait week

I saw the theme of self portrait coming up.  I'm NOT photogenic AT ALL!  But I thought I had a pretty creative idea for this week's theme.  My idea?  Well, the Korean war memorial in DC is a reflective wall with etchings of different people associated with the war.  I thought it'd be cool to capture my reflection in the wall along with the etchings- sort of symbolic of those that sacrificed so that I could be standing there looking at my own reflection and also viewing myself as someone on the wall...someone who would hopefully sacrifice for future generations so that they'd have a better life too.  Anyways, I thought it was a good idea.  The problem- me!  I swear I looked like Severus Snape in the majority of the pictures.  My smiles looked cheesy and my serious looked scary and morbid.   Sooo... I had to come up with something else for my self portrait.  Maybe nothing award winning but I am LOVING playing with my flash!!
