31 Mar My Best Shot at Truthiness
Posted at 02:39h in Uncategorized 46 Comments
Have you happened upon Sweetney’s Truthiness gig? It all began with this post where she announced the Flickr group which triggered a whole movement of sorts and I’ve been intrigued ever since.
So, in the spirit of what another blonde, blue-eyed Tracey started, I offer nothing glamorous today, just me FIRST thing in the morning (pre-coffee no less) at my Truthiest.
If you have played along already I hope you’ll leave a link to your Truthiness shot as well as whatever else that’s true to you for your Best Shot Monday today. And, if you haven’t shot the real you self-portrait yet, consider this a nudge to join in and reveal your Truth.
Good Morning Monday!

Can I just say how much I LOVE these truth photos? Gorgeous, you I adore these real photos. Raw, real and so true. Girls bonded, and the inner spark does shine through on that flickr page. So glad you did this too.
Here’s my http://www.susiej.com/index.php/truthiness-in-self-potraits/“ REL=”nofollow”>truthiness photo, (inspired by your tag, no less), and here’s my http://www.susiej.com/index.php/when-a-child-becomes-a-king/“ REL=”nofollow”>Best Shot.
Have a great day.

I totally love all the truthiness photos, so I suppose that it’s only fair that I do my own. I will put that on my to do list. But for now, here is my http://andtheducksaid.blogspot.com/2008/03/best-shot-monday-around-house.html“ REL=”nofollow”>BSM

chaoticfamilyPosted at 06:50h, 31 March
Very real! There is something so “true” about first thing in the morning.
Perhaps will brave that one – one day…
Here is mine.
ArizaphalePosted at 10:52h, 31 March
Oh I have soooo the right shot for truthiness. Meanwhile, here’s the last of our Summer for Best Shot Monday!
StacyPosted at 11:10h, 31 March
I don’t have a self portrait, but the idea sounds like fun, although a little scary. I’ll have to try it this week. Here’s mine anyway …
MayaPosted at 11:16h, 31 March
I need to do that. I agree that there’s nothing more true and raw than us women in the morning.
One truth we’re facing this week is that our little one is walking…and isn’t letting anyone stop him!

treasureseekerPosted at 11:23h, 31 March
Hmmm…truthiness can be cruel first thing in the morning and I have to say that usually only my husband is privy to that much truth!! Of course, he tells me I’m beautiful in the mornings so I will try to get a picture of what he sees…LOL!
Here’s my BSM for this week. Its the second photo in http://questfortreasure.blogspot.com/“ REL=”nofollow”>Driving Lessons
JuliePosted at 11:30h, 31 March
No truthiness photo here–I’m well past the first-thing-in-the-morning stage at this point in the morning. Sigh. I wish I wasn’t.
This is my http://www.andtherestishistory.com/2008/03/31/bsm-easter-dress/“ REL=”nofollow”>best shot, though 🙂
emilyPosted at 11:43h, 31 March
I hadn’t heard of the truthiness photos before – I’ll have to go check them out.

I love your self portrait. I like ones that show our truths.
Last week, I did my first ever http://om-mami.blogspot.com/2008/03/me.html“ REL=”nofollow”>Self Portrait, which was harder than I thought it would be with a fixed lens, so it’s super close up.

I went into the weekend with an idea of a BSM photo and never really got what I was looking for. But then after some cropping, I http://alwaysalli.com/2008/03/31/best-shot-monday-lesson-in-action/“ REL=”nofollow”>was happier. Just means I need to get serious about raising funds for my DSLR soon!
carriePosted at 14:33h, 31 March
I have been following the truthiness photos, but haven’t shot mine yet. It is a great “movement” that she started, and I’m glad you did it, too.
My Best shot is up, I can’t stop shooting the girls and their sweet http://barelycontrolledchaos.wordpress.com/2008/03/31/more-sisterly-love-best-shot-monday/“ REL=”nofollow”>togetherness.

I love it: I’ll have to think about being brave enough to be truthy. It’s a great shot.

I didn’t go with “truthiness” today…. but it gives me something to think about. Mine’s more about sleepiness.
Phyllis SommerPosted at 15:49h, 31 March
i think i’m still jetlagged cuz i definitely put the wrong url in my first comment.

Sarah-JiPosted at 16:03h, 31 March
What a great idea! Although I have to say that my truthy reflection in the mirror has scared me on more than one occasion.
I get into some truthiness on my BSM post about something we’ve been struggling about in our home for a long time. http://www.shutterbugmama.com/2008/03/best-shots-monday-yet-another-adventure.html“ REL=”nofollow”>Potty learning.

I like the MAC version of myself better than my “version” of truth.

AndiPosted at 22:43h, 31 March
Ok, so I am amazed by your bravery, but then again, you look FABULOUS in the morning…I have seen several of these shots, and still can not manage to do one for myself. Sorry. Maybe I will work up to that. I am also painfully sorry that I can NOT get the link thing to work. I must need a REMEDIAL version of the tutorial! I will keep working on it.
My post is a list of confessions…the TRUTHS that I hold to be self-evident as of right now.
HLBPosted at 00:15h, 01 April
That looks pretty fantastic, even without factoring in an early-morning discount (and nice lighting on the photo!).
My hair tends to do some pretty crazy modern art in the morning, I should start taking photos of some of the best ones. 🙂
