Steffe Vs. Steffe

Summer vs. Winter

July vs. July

I sometimes aim the camera the wrong way. And here's proof, in the form of two diptychs. The first one is Summer Vs. Winter. It shows a recent self portrait shot in a field belonging to the Nödesta farm. I took the winter snap in the same area on a cold day as I was heading for the old tree. Second diptych shows two summer portraits taken two years apart.I shot the canola portrait last week, also at the Nödesta farm. The other portrait is from the summer of 2009.

You're a braver man than I am, Gungadin!! I deliberately step out of reflections if I notice them early enough, that alone this full-frontal stuff.

Great stuff!

What a cool technique! You matched them up perfectly.

CaT said...

very funny!
just your nose in the second one... :D

Jack said...

These are always interesting, and you are brave showing yourself here. My own rare self-portraits are intended not to really show me.

How amazing Steffe, what an interesting effect, really enjoyed looking at these.

Excellent Steffe!

Birdman said...

I guess it's true. You do have a split personality. Funny!

Jarart said...

Fantastic! It is amazing how you got them matched up so well. These are so much fun to see. I must try this.

Alan said...

Why am I thinking "Terminator" when I look at these?...:-)

Steffe said...

I did a 365 project a few years ago. That meant one self portrait every day for one year...You can admire those photos if you press here.

Go for it Jarart. That is probably a correct assumption Birdman!

That happens all the time Alan. Bad Ass Steffe is my middle name.

Leif Hagen said...

I think you have a clear case of split personality! Ha!
Good self portraits, Steffe!

Alan said...

Not a bad comparison to have to put up with, i guess:-)

jbworks said...

I thought 'terminator', too!

But you have a nicer face. I would slap on the suncream if I were you, though.

Jacob said...

Seems that you look a bit like the Swedish golfer, Frederick Jacobson. Do you play golf too?

Steffe said...

Probably a good idea janerowena.

You probably mean Fredrik Jacobson. No, I don't play golf, but there was a period years ago when I enjoyed watching it on TV as I was a fan of Annika Sörenstam and Jesper Parnevik.

Thank you for sharing yourself here, the essence, as well as polarities.
How very mercurial! =)

Much appreciation.
