    Self Portraits

    How about some of you guys pop yerselves behind your own cameras then??
    I am posting this as it's just about all I have like that - but we rarely take
    ourselfs as the subject.
    Maybe it'd be fun for a while to post a few of ourselves - yep, I will try and
    make a better one than this sometime soon...

    Self Portrait W/ Yellow Cab

    While I set it up, composed it, etc... A friend actually clicked the shutter for me. BTW, this is done using my new Tamron 28-75, which is the the bees knees so far.Name:  self&yellowcab.jpg

    hey! I'm getting all arty now. How about: -
    Great Shot!

    Has found very old photo. Summer of 1981. I'm mechanic of the plane.
    P.S.
    Certainly it not a digital photo - then it simply did not exist...

    Thanks Geoff. You can say it, "blur" isn't (always) a bad word, despite it's letter count. That was my nifty fifty at f1.8 held at arm's length. Looked directly into the lense but still took about 10 shots to pick the best focus. Best 20 minute project in quite a while. Tough day for a self portriat though, no-sleep thing. B&W fixed that some.

    Astro; great shot! The highlights and bokeh really contribute. Yeah, guess we come in all ages. Looks like Sherlock's got you beat on the youth side though.
