My Baby Loves Blue

I went through some of Annie's most recent PhotoBooth files tonight. She's up to 2427 self portraits now! A few caught my eye, and they had a blue theme so this little collage was just begging to be made. Her collection of self portraits are really amazing to me. She is daring, brazen, introspective and really funny.

The nine photos shown here are a few that she was willing for me to post. If she had her way I would show the crazy one's where she's stark naked or has her finger in her nose.

I've never had a favorite color, but Annie always has. From a very early age she declared that her favorite color is BLUE and she's never wavered. It's funny because her dear birthmother Patricia's favorite color is blue too!

This time last year on MakingPeace.

The song is Deep Blue by Brian Eno.

I love how creative Annie is, but I am not surprised, she is surrounded by your creativity.

Cobalt blue is my favorite color. I can't seem to shake it as a favorite, so I can understand why your daughter's favorite hasn't changed. Could you explain what the process is for the self-portrait photos? Do you help her at all, or is it totally independent? That is a very interesting concept and activity. You seem to be full of them.

Hi Kristin!
We are Mac users here, and our latest one (imac) came bundled with a program called PhotoBooth along with a tiny little camera mounted inside the frame of the monitor. So without help, Annie has taken thousands of photos of herself using this program. She can change the "style" of photo to B&W, Sepia, Posterized, X-Ray, Blur, etc. We used PhotoBooth to take our holiday photo this year and it turned out great. Will you let me know if this answered your question?
