Self Portrait Challenge- As a ? Week 2

A Free Spirit!

We have been on the road quite a bit lately and I've been watching the look on my dog's face as she hangs her head out the window. Taking in every smell, feeling the sun on her face and the wind in her fur. She is the happiest when she tries to soak it all in as life speeds by. My spirit connected with her at that moment, reminding me to take it all in :)

Very cool photo, Tammy! I can almost feel the wind rushing by and the sun shining down.

Very Cool and CUTE Tammy but be careful, too much wind in those ears is not good! xo

Love this photo - it is a bit like a haiku itself - says so much in a glance - the wind, the sun and you - soaking it all in.

Madeleine said...

You seem like you're breathing air for the first time. Great photo :)

Very cool pic, Tammy! I'll be on the road myself for the next week (I'm going to Colorado & Utah), and I expect there'll be times I'll be doing this very thing.

This is such a cool photo, completely capturing your bliss!
The other day we got into the car and it was stiffling hot...I stuck my head out the window, much like this, and my first thought was also a connection to a pup's windful delight.

Love the photo - and the experience! I did this all the time when I was a child and sometimes as an adult.

Tammy, you are a true joy. I say it time and time again, but you radiate sunshine, rainbows, flowers, and love. I adore you.

(Oops, I got carried away and forgot to mention that this self-portrait is beyond cool and so YOU!)

This is such a happy portrait. I LOVE hanging my head out the sindow like that feeling the wind and the sun. *sigh* I need to go somewhere a bit cooler so the breeze will be refreshing and now icky hot! :)

Marvelous photo and sentiment! I so enjoy watching my dog's face when he's hanging out the car window. It is such pure and utter joy, soaking up every smell and sense of life whishing by! And you're obviously feeling the same thing! I've got to try it myself now (when someone else is driving!)

I love it, you look beautiful!

What freedom! I used to love to do this as a child...hands out, feet out, head out, whatever felt good. Thanks for bringing back the good memories ;-)

Beautiful picture!! It reminds me of my childhood...and if it weren't 110 degrees outside I'd do it on the way home! Thanks!
