We’ve re-started our bicycle touring Guest Photography series and this month are featuring Cycling Cindy.
Cinderella Servranckx is a former food photographer. She’s been on the road now for a number of years and her new photography specialty is shooting original selfies.
When you follow my blog, you may have wondered whether I feel like a movie star? Or perhaps whether I think of myself as a terrific beautiful 45 years young? Or maybe you think I reached a delayed midlife crisis and feel like a 15 years old again? None of it. I like being my own model, as this cost me no effort. I am not shy in front of my own camera, but maybe that is because I was a photographer, albeit of food.
But sometimes, I do get wildly enthusiastic from the natural surrounding I am in, and great poses spring up from my mind.
What I try to conceive is my mood. I can take many photo’s of, for example, an endless stretch of road, but it doesn’t show the total picture, the hardship or happiness of it. With myself, I try to bring the mood to the one who is seeing the photo, including myself.
With my blog I try to inspire people to follow their dreams. To travel in a self-propelled mode (no airplanes!), to overcome fear and leave the comfort zone, to be out in nature: because true happiness lays here. And to love thyself, and make a selfie or two a day.
Stay tuned, more -vanity speaks- super original selfies will follow in due time…
