One of the things on my list of 40 things was to say YES more (right after saying NO more! Different reasons…). Saying YES (to me) means being open to spontaneous adventures and experience and doing things outside my comfort zone.
Sunday my friend Sarah texted and asked if I’d like to come over and get my photo taken for a photo project to be exhibited at the Rochester Art Center. I didn’t get ready in time but during a walk we found the photographer and it happened. It wasn’t hard to say YES to having my picture taken but when the camera was walking towards me I did feel a little intimidated. And it was an in-your-face-photo, so I thought he probably only got my eyes in the frame, but I guess the macro lens captured my entire face.
The photographer was asking random people and having a hard time getting people to say YES to having their photo taken so he was looking for people he knew to bring his numbers up. Why would someone say NO to having their picture taken? Was it the thought of someone getting too close? The thought of having it hanging on a wall outside of your home?
Well, I said YES and I’m excited to attend the opening of the exhibit tomorrow night*** and to see all of the other Rochester people who said YES.
Off to read!
*** I always write my posts the night before and set them to publish in the morning… so the art exhibit opening is TONIGHT – Thursday! The exhibit runs for a while, but tonight is the opening night. Just a clarification!
