I was excited to do this challenge since I am a fan of self portraits and use them as a way of self expression and to let my creativity flow. I wanted to do a "clone" technique to portray some aspects of myself. I actually had a hard time narrowing it down to ones that were all relatively intertwined. I am a fairly multi-faceted person with lots of different traits, so choosing three was tough!

I love books. They are very much a source of inspiration and an escape from reality. I think people who don't read are truly missing out.

I love to listen. I listen to everything. Friends with problems, strangers and their passing conversations. Being an active listener, I feel, gains me more than I lose by tuning out.

I LOVE to daydream. It's where most of my "thinking" gets done. I like to sort out images and scenarios in my head.

Thanks for all the comments and votes. :) I did this photo in one night before flying to Guatemala the next day.
