PhotoHunt - Balanced

This weeks theme over at PhotoHunt is: Balanced. I thought of several ways that I could go with this and all of them seemed obvious to me. If you've read my blog for long you know that I like to go for the "out of the box" scenario for these themes. Which is what I'm going to try to do today.

I am a mom, wife, child of God, sister, daughter, aunt, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, friend, singer, hand bell ringer, tap dancer, home maker, Cub Scout mom, PTA Board Member, amerature photographer, crafter, knitter, cross-stitcher, etc. But most of all I'm ME! Sometimes as a all of these hats fit on my head I tend to forget that I am my own person too. It truly is a balancing act and sometimes I find it hard to be balanced while performing that act. About a year ago (with another photo challenge) I had to take a self portrait of myself without using a tripod. It was not as easy as it sounds. Again, another balancing act...literally. Trying to keep myself balanced while keeping the camera balanced. After taking almost 80 photos here is the outcome of that photo session.

For those of you that are asking me about the photo contest I entered...I came in 2nd place...227 votes to 250 votes (if I remember correctly). It was a great race and I'm looking forward to the next contest I enter. If you didn't get to see the photo that I entered and would like to do so you can go to this post to see it.
