Self Portrait

Pictures of me, taken by myself. I tend to go with the official (365 Days) definition of a self portrait: “A self portrait is a photo of yourself taken by you – it is not a photo of you taken by someone else and it is not a photo of something you hold near and dear to your heart.” … “The main thing is that you are both the photographer and the subject. Any photo which you took that contains any part of your body counts.” … “shots of your shadow, impressions left in sand or snow, and reflections on surfaces such as a faucet or even a mirror are acceptable forms of self portraits.” Note. Some posts will be tagged as self-portraits because just one of the images is a selfie.

The start of the evening

Washer Repairs (Part I)

Thursday night the washer started smoking. Obviously that’s not a habit to be encouraged, so I took a quick look and determined that the transmission support bearing had broken up. Today I stripped the washer down, removed the transmission and… Continue Reading →

Ironed Out

Original caption: “Best part of three weeks away and I’m overrun by ironing.” When I took the original version of this picture I had just returned to the UK from my first visit to see Ginger in the US. The… Continue Reading →

Making the bed

When Ginger said “Make the bed.” I’m pretty sure this is what she had in mind The six of us have been sleeping in a small ‘queen sized’ bed for the past five years. Six – that’s Ginger, myself and… Continue Reading →
