The photohunt theme is self. Most of the pictures of myself which I've used for photohunt themes have been old ones. Therefore, I decided to do a very recent self portrait and show you what my fifty year old self looks like in May of 2008. I ain't broke but I'm badly bent. Just kidding, I stole the italic line from an old song.
I am probably most comfortable hiding behind the camera like I'm doing in the shot above. As visitors to my blog probably know, I like the take photographs. Therefore having a shot of me taking pictures seems to make sense in terms of this self portrait. I took the shot above outside a doctor's office. I find it relaxing to take my camera with me to doctor's appointments and grab a few photo ops as they come up, usually outside. The second shot is of me in my garden last weekend. I used the time release and set my camera on a small ladder for the outdoor shots. I love to be outdoors in my garden so that is a part of my self portrait. My garden is a bit on the wild side which suits me most of the time. I often mention my secret garden and as you can see in the shot above, I have privacy screening in the form of overgrown bushes. The last shot shows me in my garden drinking coffee with a raincoat over my nightgown which is pretty typical of me. I love coffee and I often go outside before I get dressed but I don't want to scare the meter readers so I try to remember to put something on over my nightgown. Unfortunately, my gas meter is within the borders of my secret garden, and if I am outside déshabillé, I run the risk of frightening the meter readers who run from yard to yard. I guess that's it for my self portrait and it's about time for me to get dressed.
