exits, a photo by dustbowl ugly on Flickr.

It's been a while since I've paid any attention to this blog, what with moving to San Francisco and all. In fact, my administration of the Flickr group dedicated to reflective self-portraits had lapsed to the point that almost four thousand photos were in queue for approval! (I'm plugging away at getting it up to date.) I hope to be posting more regularly here now that it's back on my radar.

I like this photo mostly for the pinks and the geometry.

Infinite Self-Portrait #2

Some photos, despite any attempt to make the viewer smile, do precisely that.

Caught in the Web

A couple of years ago, I started a 365-day project that didn't go much beyond a week or so. My goal was to shoot 365 self-portraits in reflective surfaces. I stopped because I stayed home a bit too much. I quickly ran out of reflective surfaces in the apartment (interesting ones, that is), so I gave it up.

But seeing photos like this one make me want to start it up again.

Sometimes, while going through the Self-Portrait With Camera pool, a photo just screams to be chosen for this blog.

As I have had loads of fun with my own convex mirror, I think I have a special affinity for reflective self-portaits in which one is used. Perhaps it's the distortion... the caricatured portrait such a mirror creates; perhaps it's that so much of the surroundings are included as well.

Self Portrait with Camera

After being out of town for almost a month and—once back—taking another week to re-settle in at home, I'm finally getting around to updating this blog.

I was expecting to sift through older posts in the Self-Portrait With Camera pool, but this was amongst today's photos awaiting approval for the pool and I couldn't resist.

There is something very Rockwellian about this that I love, from the colours to the composition including the backpack, unmade bed and (what I presume to be) freshly-removed sneakers, to the blank look on the woman's face, to the multitude of rectangles within the rectangle-image.

I'm a #horny #girl ah ah

I've not posted for a few days as I have been going through the group pool from its very beginnings looking for potential blog photos. This one—submitted over the weekend—caught my eye, however.

When I started this blog a little over a week ago, it occurred to me that when I first joined flickr, there was a blog called The Mirror Project, which featured photos from the flickr group of the same name. The blog still exists, but it doesn't look anything at all like I recall it seven years ago or so.

Or maybe my memory is faulty.

Self Portrait
