Putting myself out there again with my photography.
Part of that extension of myself is opening myself up to critiques. I'm cool with that. There is so much I am yet to learn, I'm having a blast exploring the medium of Photography.
I'm jumping in again this week by joining in the photography comp over at I❤Faces
The Adult section of the 'Self Portraits' Category
Pop on over and Check out all the awesome entries.
It is no secret to anyone that knows me that this is my one of my favorite Portraits.
My favorite SELF Portrait.
Contrary to popular belief it IS a relatively recent portrait.
O.K, O.K I know it is slightly misleading...IRL I may have a life-line or two that are slightly more visible than in this portrait. Alright there is actually a sh!t load.
THAT is why I like this photo. It reminds me of how old I feel, NOT how old I look!
It's just a simple black and white conversion of a photo I took on my trusty old Canon Power-Shot A610 point and shoot.
It was preserving the moment that I had snuck off and cut all my hair off.
I was sick of Belle tugging and pulling great chunks of it. I needed a change.
So, off I snuck to the Hairdresser.
The shot was only taken a year and a half ago...it reminds me of
the 'Fresh Face' me of twenty Years ago.
I look at myself looking to the future.
'Oh What Wonders Await You Miss Jewelz, Oh What Wonders await!'
I like this shot and I'm proud to put it out there. Wish me luck.
My girlfriend Carla says she finds it very Audry Hepburn,
What do you think?
