When I was a little boy, I liked to make funny faces at cute girls or strangers in the car behind us or people at church or pretty much anyone. I was a typical little boy full of mischief. My grandma used to say......"What if your face froze like that?"
Fast forward 30+ years and it's a BRISK January morning and the winds are HOWLING out of the north. I'm taking the dogs on their morning walk and as I get closer to home, I realize that I must look like a maniac. Because I am grimacing from the cold WHILE I'm smiling (because I LOVE walking the dogs). I decide that THIS will be my SiJ shot. I will walk into the house, and keep this look on my face and grab my camera for the bathroom mirror self-portrait.
I know I'm no Brad Pitt (or Cary Grant for the older generation), but this is still not a flattering shot. But I just wasn't in the mood to shoot anymore. So I took the rest of the day off of shooting.
