At Ease (365: 51)

At Ease (365: 51) – I’ve run out of time. I couldn’t choose a picture so I’ll go with the first. That’s a big problem with self portraits. You end up taking a lot. One-minute read, 11 pictures

Too Much… (365:50)

Too Much… (365:50) – I felt a bit rough when I got up this morning, and heaven knows why, but for some masochistic reason, I pointed a camera at myself

Another Shower shot, only this time I didn’t get wet (365: 43) – I thought one of the ideas behind the 365 days project was to help people get to know themselves. This poses a problem when you find you don’t like the person you’ve got to know. One-minute read

Don’t Look Now (365: 35) – At the very last moment I’ve decided that this is my photo for today.

Resting (365: 34)

Resting (365: 34) – I haven’t got any enthusiasm for photography right now. I’ll get this over and done with for the day, and go back to sleep

Sneeze (365: 33)

Sneeze (365: 33) – In the last few days I’ve been coming down with a cold, and taking these self portraits has become a bit of a pain. This picture is awful, the alternate is slightly better, but this one sums up how I feel. One-minute read, +1

The Red Dress (365: 32) – For my final foray into the Copycat mini-challenge, this was going to be ‘The Red Shorts’ but then I thought I’d go one better… One-minute read

February 6, 2007

February 6, 2007 – It’s not been a good night. I’ve taken over a hundred pictures and the good picture fairy hasn’t shown up.

Deliberate (365: 31)

Deliberate (365: 31) – Or if you prefer. ‘Red tie at night…’ Re-edit. I typically had one hour to grab and process a picture each day. So many of the shots and much of the processing were hurried. I think the original shot would have worked better if I’d decided to cool down the lighting. +1

Searching for an SP

Searching for an SP – SP – Self Portrait as they were called in the days before ‘Selfies.’ It wasn’t unusual to take 30-60 pictures in a session just to find one I was happy with. This is one of today’s ‘outtakes.’

Waking Up (365: 29)

Waking Up (365: 29) – In the summer I sleep in the garden. In October I vowed to spend one night a month sleeping out and last night was February’s turn.

February Sunbathing (365: 28) -After a long walk to the shops and back via the in-laws, it was time to sit in the garden and enjoy the sun. It wasn’t long before I decided it was warm enough to disrobe.

Pensive. It’s taking a fair bit of digging to discover why I have this picture. It turned out that I’d planned a 365 days picture — but it went wrong. This was my ‘safety shot.’
