40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

How come....(I'm asking with all sincerity too.)

How come when you take pictures of houses, cars, boats, kids, and nature...those things ALWAYS look so much better in print. However, I can feel like I'm looking rather good one day...hair good...make-up (what little I wear) in place and tastefully done and come out looking like something the cat drug in...or worse...MY MOTHER! I don't get it! Every wrinkle shows...every gray...every EVERYTHING is noticable. Now how come this doesn't happen when you take OTHER pictures?

 OMG this is so true!!!  DS took a pic of me just this week before I headed out to meet some friends for dinner....yes I thought I looked pretty damn good however the picture said otherwise.

I often wonder the same thing. I take terrible pictures and look like I just rolled out of bed and raggedy.. UGH!

 Oh for sure!!! But there are times when I'm feeling like I've got it all going on...only to discover that RIGHT before that picture was snapped, I done lost EVERY bit of it! LOL

So true. There have been times I'll look in the mirror and think I look pretty good, then a pic will get taken of me that same day, and I look like crap! Or I'll look in the mirror and think that what I'm wearing makes me look a little smaller, then get my pic taken and I look like a freakin whale, i can't win. So I usually just avoid pics, lol.

The house, cars, and boats are void of human emotion; kids haven't been on the planet long enough to show signs of wear and tear from the environment and the emotional strain of living under our government; and nature can be above all that and just be beautiful all the time. Unless we've been in contact with it too much and screwed with it enough during that contact to make it ugly. :/
