Moi 🙂

OK I know its just a pic of me, but I am sitting home today on Aust Day without my family so allow me a little self indulgence.

Even though it can be terrifying, I think its important to make sure there is evidence of my existence, so now and then I get on the other side of the camera.  As a photographer, I do all the photo making, and I am hardly ever in them.

This shot was taken about a year ago as part of a self portrait shoot  (I did get a little help from a special friend, thanks Teash) and I only just discovered this shot today.  I quite like it!!

Maybe when I’m gone this will be the pic of me the kids show their kids, and they show their kids.

Today’s morale: make sure there are photos of you at every age, just like to try to do with your kids.  If you haven’t got any kids yet, trust me you will go camera mad when you do!!

    One of my recent blog posts featured myself as well. The reason you quoted above was the exact same reason I had my buddy take the shots. We deserve a little face time even though it may be like once a year right? It is a beautiful picture and thanks for sharing.
