49/52 for the group 52 in 2013

This week's theme was: This Is Me ... Self Portrait!!!

So, here I am, as per the theme. It was rather hastily snapped using the "hold the camera at arm's length" method. Could have done with taking a few more to get a better expression, but I am one of the least photogenic people I know.

I really like the subtleties of the lighting and the color in your outfit!

(As for photogenic, how photogenic are any of us over-fifties?)

You look intelligent and kind, which is all that matters to me. Also, I like the colors in your clothing as well.

Thank you. :)

I love that sweater, though it's starting to go fuzzy because it's only cheap acrylic. I had gone into town on a dreary wet day around this time of year and saw it hanging outside a clothes shop. It looked so cheerful, I just had to have it.

I wouldn't have guessed you were holding the camera. It looks like you've seen something pleasing out the window.

I think that's a good one of you.

I think that's a great photo ... it feels profound.

Portraits of oneself are so subjective - I would have said you were one of the more photogenic people I knew.

That's because you have only seen the self-portraits I post and you don't seen the 9 million photos I discarded where I'm pulling a strange expression. :)
