365 Days – a project to take a self-portrait every day for a year. The rules are simple. I must be visible in the picture, and I must take the picture. This is my first complete 365 days project. All I had to help me get into the pictures was a 10-second timer. It’s surprising how fast you can get at getting into position!

What a Difference a Beer Makes – Product Placement (365: 96) – Today Thursdays and the 365 days project conspired to really get me down.

Tempting (365: 94) – 365 days can do this to you…

And why not? (365: 93) – My planned 365 days picture was okay, but too mundane, so I took this.

Trapped (365:91) – No time today. Too busy working on the hall. (re-titled and re-edited). +1

Break (365: 90) – Work on renovating the hall has begun. Today we took down the ceilings on the middle and ground landings and my work room. we also took out the wall between the landing and my work room.

Just Me (365: 88)

Annual Returns, Accounts, and Invoicing – Oh My! (365: 85) 2 pictures

Bliss (365: 84) – Oh the benefits of a sheltered, south facing, garden when there is a cold wind blowing from the north.

Self Portrait of Gary Allman - March 2007

Thursdays (365: 82) – I recently wrote that I had yet to capture the ‘essence’ of myself. This, I think might be it.

Friday Night Wine & Movie (365: 76 ) – Sin City: Voted our film of the year 2005 and 2006 (Joint winner with Wallace and Grommit).

Safety in Numbers (365:55) 3 pictures

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) – 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

Drinking to(wards) Summer (365: 47).

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) – 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) – 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

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
