Self-portrait that is . Not a well-executed one - more impulsive (in response to Kate at Shutter Sisters). This is the reflection in the gazing ball in my backyard. I sort of like it, plus it hides the facial wrinkles that I am becoming very aware of lately. I have been trying to get a self-portrait that I'm happy with but I just haven't gotten it yet.
I guess this one is acceptable enough to post. I really, really do not like photos of myself - I have a hard time acting completely natural. I tend to have a wide-eyed look and I'm stiff or something. Anyway, I'll keep working on it.
My daughter, on the other-hand, is a natural at taking self-portraits. She knows how to look into the camera and be expressive. She plays around with self-portraits all the time and gets some very good ones. Maybe it has something to do with age I don't know.
