Me by my 7 year old nephew who was I was photographing, photographing me - he could barely hold up my k5! I did a slight crop and the B&W conversion though. Hope to get the photo of him processed down the lab soon

Fun portrait, even more fun story, for the first one! Next time you need a mirror showing it all!

Oops, just noticed how long and long-running this thread is! A lot can change in 3 years!

You guys are "in luck." I was doing an exercise yesterday morning, and, distracted by the challenge of navigating the menus and dealing with all the knobs on my tripod (no, I don't have a ball head for it), I managed to take a candid selfie. Let this be a lesson to you - check your hair in a mirror, don't rely on your sense of touch!

OK, I'm going to add my selfie here, though I did just put it in the Photo ID thread recently.

Camera Roll-194 by BBW: BB Wylie Walden, on Flickr


Shot with my handy dandy iPhone by propping it on the sash of a double hung window upstairs in our house that just happens to get great northern light. I took this picture for several reasons and one was to try to get what I thought was a fairly flattering photo of myself...and 99% of us know how challenging it can be to take a photo of ourselves! Or perhaps this is a female issue - always wishing there were less wrinkles, etc, as we go gently into our good nights.:wink:

Anyhow, here's my encouragement to see more of us giving a face to our names - either on this thread or on Bill's Pub Photo-ID thread. Think of it as a challenge - as well as a way to say hello.

A badass with a heart of gold.

IVN, we'll be happy to share with you the wisdom of our combined years.:p

Believe me, there are some others near you....though it's hard for me to tell exactly how old you are... Late 20s, early 30s? Heck, Luke's a youngster and so is Armando, and what about Tillman and....Antonio...as well as James....

Not any good at this and it's a bit artful but this is as fresh as Jan 4th this year... I'm obviously the one with the Fuji. We were hiking in the arboretum and found this ornament just hanging out in the woods. So naturally we had to go make monkeys of ourselves (that is my daughter and fellow photo-hiker) and try to get photos of it... and us. We found several more afterwards, a sort of winter easter egg hunt perhaps, and ran from one to the next capturing them. Now we both seem to have caught some kind of bug (from hiking in the cold?!) and are sick. :doh:

Yeah yeah.. but I doubt anyone else here would photograph themselves with watery eyes, a puffy face and swollen neck glands so tease away. I'd break the glass on a good day. See updated icon, fill in the eyes [blue]. :p
