secret identity

secret identity

Like many of you, I haven't always relished looking at photos of myself.  Or taking them.  I'm always a bit taken aback that the outside (40-something) doesn't match the inside (12-ish).  I've shot quite a few self-portraits this past year though, and I've come to appreciate making an image that reflects me, not just for what I look like on the outside, but which reveals my personality in some way.  I recently started wearing reading glasses and when I catch a sideways glimpse of myself in a mirror I think I look quite Clark Kent-like.  I'm quite fond of the idea of having a secret identity.

KJBehavior's self-portrait of herself cooling off in her car caught my eye because that sassy smile makes it look like she's hiding something too.  I wonder what it is?

cheers,

I am loving your self portrait - you captured incredible light as well as the 12 year old inside of you. And I also like your pairing. Great job!

Heather said...

Beautiful portrait! I just bought a supersized pack of reading glasses at costco. Seems I need to have them everywhere!

@Kimberly - I don't think you're alone, I'd bet that most of us take WAY upward of 12 shots to get a self-portrait we can live with. :)

@Deb - I'm reading "In the Heart of the Sea", so nothing devilish this time around!
