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.

One down and one to go – This isn’t an ordinary trip. I wanted to get a few more miles under my belt, so I came up with the idea for my ‘Four Days, Three Nights, Two Wildernesses’ hike. Here I am back at the trailhead at the end of the first part. [2 pictures]
A Tad Chilly – I stayed in bed waiting for things to warm up before venturing out. I don’t have an insulated hood, so I improvised with my shemagh. Very elegant, very old lady. I’m also looking a bit chubby around the chops too. [1 picture]
