Today's (yesterday's, to be accurate) is another self-portrait.
I've been a fan of raw, out-of-the-box self portraits for a long time. The kind that make you just stare, and think. the kind that awaken some kind of emotional understanding. The dramatic, enthralling, engaging, creative...
This woman is one of many I admire for her selfie abilities. (Please click. She's amazing!)
Unfortunately, I have zero experience in being in front of the camera, and less inhibition then a toadstool. I never did go to acting school, get a part in a high school play, or even try out, for that matter. I have wonderful ideas, in my head, but on paper (or digital file format), I fall far short from where I'd like to be.
Last night, I decided to try. And try I did.

And did again.
|ok, this isn't really trying....|
I don't pretend these are great. They really aren't. But they are a start.
After some editing, and a little thought, they grew on me a bit.
I suppose a good self-portrait shows one, as one is. These are actually a pretty good representation of me, as I am.
