Weekly Photo Challenge: Self Portrait

This is an older photo of me – but it represents exactly how I see myself.

How I have ALWAYS seen myself.

Slightly apart from the rest of the world – an observer…

I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. I’ve always seen myself as pretty much of an observer as well, but whenever I’ve attempted to photograph a self portrait I always come across as a goofy dork. Your photo turned out cool–sly, elusive, and with a qurky sense of humor. Nice shot.

  2. a terrific capture – although i suspect beneath all the observing, there is probably some enjoying, partaking and sharing going on, too. your posts certainly demonstrate that, and i for one appreciate what that aspect about them 🙂
    thanks for another great post!

  3. You’re right, it’s very hard to find a picture of oneself that is above self critique. I absolutely LOVE this pic of you, though! I really like the look you have in your eyes in this one…There is wisdom, impishness and definitely a sense of adventure shining out. Now when I think of you, I won’t be able to keep from thinking of this picture of you! 🙂

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
