I felt like some self portraits today. I don’t take very good pictures of people, myself included. Most of the time I’m just not so interested in getting shots of people. But since this is a project not only to improve my (primarily nature-based) picture-taking but also to simply document the events, interests, and minutiae of my life, it makes sense that I should be in front of the camera sometimes, instead of just behind it, subtly implying that you should give as much of a damn about lichen as I do. I think it’s fair to say that I — my physical person! — am a somewhat important figure in my own life.
These pictures (the first one from a few days ago, the last four all from today) show me doing some of the things I do best: staring impassively, lying in repose, harassing cats. It was exciting when I could do more than one of these things at the same time.
