Default 29: 14 December 2009 - selfportrait in a reflecting surface



Amazingly I am the only person in the shot! This self portrait was shot using a mirror against the bottom of an escalator in a shopping mall in Antalya, Turkey, September 2009.



The next photograph was taken at the public library in building De Kristal in the Nesselande quarter of Rotterdam (one of my company's projects), The Netherlands, 2009.

The Dutch text in the bottom right hand corner f the mirror reads:
Je gezicht
is je eigen weerbericht
als je in de spiegel kijkt kun je je eigen bui zien hangen

(by Jan 't Lam)

free translation:

Your face
is your own weather forecast
if you look in the mirror you can see your depression on your face

This is the picture I sent to Lady Maelin when I was "posing" for my pictorial version of Pern's characters:

I have some catching up to do in this forum. Most of my spare time over the past few weeks has been spent scanning the 1000+ film and slide photographs I have had in my attic for years. The main purpose is to load up a digital photo frame I am giving to my parents as a Christmas surprise. But a secondary advantage is that I now have some of those photos available to post here.

But first, here's a seasonal self-portrait from 2003:

Took a bit to find this, as I couldn't remember what month it was taken:

I tried to add a second photograph by editing my post but it crashed my browser! (Perhaps the annoying video adverts on photobucket swamped our slow internet connection.) Here is a second attempt:

This second picture comes from the National Garden Centre in Ireland in 2001. One of the gardens was designed so that when you entered through a narrow gap the first thing you saw was a reflection of yourself at the other end of the garden. I photographed the experience:

I really love Steven's picture in the ornament. Very cool. (Wish I'd thought of it myself.)

Me too, Pam. But I also like blondmom's because silhouette pictures always have something mysterious

I like the way Steve's self portrait make him look like he's got a gold cravat.

I was actually digging through some of my photos for the transportation theme when I came across this. Incidentally, I wasn't even really attempting to catch myself in the rear view mirror rather I was taking pictures through the window of the beautiful scenery as the car was traveling. Once again, this photo comes from the several hundred photos that I took when I went to Quebec City last May. We were on the Ile d'Orleans at that particular point in time.

Good one r2005. Did you find yourself to be closer than you thought you were?
