Today’s photo, for my money, is the best photographic self-portrait I’ve ever seen. I mean it. Ella took it in 2004, just moments before taking the picture of Melinda in yesterday’s post. She had the hand mirror out on the dining room table, caught herself in it, and snapped this picture (remember, click on it to enlarge it).
I like the expression on her face, like she’s not quite sure if this is going to work out. She looks a little self-conscious, too, like she’s not sure she should be taking her picture.
I like her hand on the mirror, holding it in place. And I especially like the fingernail polish. What color is that anyway? Turquoise?
