This particular night I was feeling very tired and worn out. I was just trying to capture something before the day was through and I was in bed. In the editing process is when this photo came alive. I switched it to black and white and bumped up what was the red in the color version. That is why all the freckles, wrinkles and flaws are so pronounced. It was so funny, I thought this photo made me look old and ugly and when I posted it on Facebook my family said I looked beautiful. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
