This week’s FriFotos theme is “black and white” and I chose a portrait — of myself. I’m not really that egocentric (-ish haha :P), but I just love this photo for two main reasons. Firstly, it brings back great memories: It was taken during my very first trip around Egypt (outside of Cairo), in which I visited the oases Baharya, Farafra, Dakhla, and the Black desert and White desert.
Secondly, it truly is a candid portrait. I know you won’t believe me, but my friend Marine simply yelled, “Maria! PHOTO!” and I just looked to my side, held my hair and this is what came out! You may believe the “authenticity” of such claim by noting the big water bottle I’m holding with my left arm *wink* Hope you like it (and don’t hate me now and stop reading my blog because you think I’m in love with myself)! Note: I have filed this post under Puerto Rico *wink* Taking off tonight–YAY!! However, please stay tuned as I have scheduled some posts for next week, meaning content flow won’t stop. Can’t wait to see your comments and RT’s once I get back! (:P)
