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 Hunchback of Hercules – While hiking west on the Pilots (Tower) Trail to the bluffs I was caught by a thunderstorm. Finally a real chance to try out my rain poncho! It worked fine, but with the temperatures up in the mid eighties it was hot and humid with it on. One-minute read, 2 pictures

Oops! I walked into a plate glass window. No real damage done, and luckily there was no one around to witness me doing it.

Wet Feet Hike – The full write up of my recent hike. I was determined to get out on a couple of free days no matter what the weather was. The forecast was for rain and as it had been raining a lot the past few days I was expecting the trails to be wet. 16-minute read, 48 pictures
