Photo Friday: Nerdy

My special ape face, Canon Digital Rebel

Photo Friday’s theme this week is “Nerdy.” This is my special ape face. Not to be confused with the grouper face, the scary-flat-face face, or the no lip face with the trucker accent.

So many nerdy pictures of myself to choose from.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    …that reminds me of my old-lady-face…maybe I should practise it more often as grimacing is supposed to prevent wrinkles…it’s like yoga for your face! 😉

    The theme this week is a HOOT!


    The glasses, the hair, the expression… are you an actress too? Sounds like you have enough pics to support a Nerdy Week here!
    Love it.

    I think that embracing your inner nerdiness is the greatest stress reliever of all time!!! My inner nerd sings as loudly and as off key as possible…

    Have you ever read Lucky Jim, by Kingsley Amis? It’s a very funny book, and Jim goes through the whole thing making silent faces to himself, just like you are talking about here. Thanks for sharing your nerdy side.

    It’s the totally pastoral background that makes the image work. LOVE it.
