As I sit here with yet another wound from one of my many hobbies (This time it was a dirt bike. To make a long story short I was going too slow & lifted my feet too early and BAM! down the bike went jabbing the spikey foot peg into my left shin. Leaving me with a gaping wound only a week before the H3T triathlon.) I think back to about a year & a half ago when I had a photo shoot done of me for my grooms gift for my hubby on our wedding day. Not long before that shoot I had made the mistake of getting a little too close to his exhaust on the old motorcycle and had a burn on the back of my calf. As the photoshoot went on our lovely photographer noticed the scar and made a comment about photoshopping it out. Although well intentioned & many women would have been greatful to hear that, I couldn't imagine taking it out and I told her not to bother. It was a scar that my love is & was well aware of & it makes me who I am. Between triathlon training of learning to ride a bicycle, trail running when I was younger, & now motorcycles & dirt bikes I have scars from various falls & this is what makes me me. To take that a little farther this is also what makes my marriage what it is as we do all these activities together. If I happen to have a few scars in a photo then that's just who I am. Although I offer photo editing whether it be to enhance an otherwise unusable photo, repair a photo, or for those who want a few wrinkles, spots ect removed or enhanced I do hope that women in particular love who they are and treasure every bit of themselves scars or no scars. Photos are moments & memories captured visually and can say a thousand words. They convey personality. They portray special events. They speak of a person's life in many ways. For me I want people to know the quirky, spontaneous, strong athletic woman I am scars, injuries, & all & I hope that other women learn to love those things in themselves as well.
