This self portrait shows a lot about me as a person. I love being outside in the sunshine and my favorite thing in the whole world is being at the beach. I love collecting unique shells and other things and just being in the sand and just the smell of the sea. My family goes to Hilton Head, South Carolina over every spring break and that is my favorite time to just soak up the sun and spend every possible second at the beach. The shell was one that I found in Hilton Head and took a photo of for the object assignment, but that shell is a representation of some of the best memories of my life which were made on the beaches of Hilton Head with family and friends. The flowers are from Hilton Head as well. Every time we go there the flowers are always in full bloom and they have the most beautiful flowers all around the condos that we stay in. The palm trees and cruise ship are from another vacation my family went on this summer which was a cruise to the Caribbean. The photo of the palm trees was taken in Cozumel, Mexico which was our first stop, and the image of the ocean and the cruise ship was taken from the shores of Grand Cayman Island which was our second stop of the trip. This trip is also among my top memories. We went with about forty family members and had a great time relaxing and enjoying time in the tropical sunshine with family and friends. This edit shows a lot about me in the form of some of my most cherished memories.
