Self Portrait

“The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try
and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson 1908-2004

It’s not so hard when it’s my skin and my shirt. The soft shadows
are cast on the side of a water tank.

  1. I did a self portrait project every day for a year. It was leap year so I ended up with 366 photos. It gets tougher the longer you do it. You have come up with an interesting pose in your photo.

  5. Like Hilary I thought of Hitchcock too. Showing our age I guess. Great choice for a background.

  7. I smiled both when I saw your photo and then the comments as my first thought also was Hitchcock.
