What strikes me as really strange is people who want photos of themselves posing in front of every landmark they visit. I'm not there to have photos snapped - I'm there for the historical or cultural hit. As for dysmorphia, feel free to take a look at my Profile pic. I don't have any body issues. And I certainly don't lack self-esteem LOL! Aren't you the person who started the silly overweight in Europe thread? Seems to be an issue in your tribe, not mine.

Come on PFD, we await the next installment!

I'm not lying, and it's annoying that I keep having to assure that I'm not. I took pictures of beautiful sights and buildings, not of me. My mom was upset I didn't take pictures of myself, but oh well.
I went to see Paris, not to snap photographs of myself as proof that I was there.

People who want to see photos of you in Paris, other than your Mom, are just being nosey. Don't let it annoy you.

Glad you had a wonderful trip.

God, get over it...she isn't going to post pictures of herself. Move on or stop reading.

She coulda gone with my husband who is awful about taking pictures of me. On some trips you would hardly know I was there.

Who cares about the pics, but at PFD's age, I admit I took many of myself enjoying Paris. After I hit around 30, I didn't care as much about being in the photos. Then when I got married, of course I wanted a few snaps of my husband and myself in certain places we found and loved.

I guess it's just a matter of preference, although I am surprised, as a young girl, PFD didn't even take one. Oh, PFD, your poor mama! I'm taking our teen girls to Paris in a few months and you bet I'm going to have photos of them in Paris!

"That just seems really strange to me "

Not strange at all. (and looking at the responses it appears more folks don't stick themselves in their pictures than do) I also have next to no travel photos of myself. I've taken 75,000 to 100,000 photos in Europe and another maybe 25,000 in the States over the last 35+ years and can count the shots of me on maybe 2 hands.

pfd: Really enjoying your blog.

denisea - are you sure you're not married to my DH? he's just the same. AND he hides from the camera too so I have to snap him when he's not looking.

keep it coming, pfd.

Great second entry. Sorry about the boots. There is a fine line between fashion and function.
And I really like your pictures. They are real pictures, as though we are there with you. Not overly pretty, but real, if you get what I mean. Very nice.

OMG I LOL'd. Good job with the blog. Sorry about the boots. They really do look as if they'd be comfortable.

At least that's one mistake you'll never make again.

Very impressed with how much walking and museum-going you did with your feet killing you.

You have some very nice photos too.

My feet were numb at the end of the day and when I woke up in the morning. It was actually the worst.
