Autumn Me

November

No blue sky for a while now. I tend to prefer a blue sky over a grey one. Which is to say that I haven't been out shooting very much lately. But one good thing is that it has been very warm the last few weeks. At least compared to the last few years. I shot this self portrait at home a few days ago. These leaves will not be removed from the lawn. And I promise to shoot another self-portrait here when the snow arrives...

with all the portraits you do of others, i like that you throw a self-portrait in every now and then.

Ah-ha! A person version of your tree.

I bet this took a bit of setting up. And you did not nick yourself shaving. Always good to know.

I like the blue jacket/shirt/ with the pink zipper.

It is a good looking photographer laying down on the leaves. Nice shot.

Excellent!

'...when the snow arrives"...a foreboding comment. Perhaps we can see one of you as a snow angel??

The setting up took about a minute from idea to result. From the window where I'm typing this I looked down at the lawn and figured that would make a nice self-portrait. Thirty seconds later I was lying on the lawn and I took five or six photos. Two minutes after that the photo was posted on flickr.

I will give that a go Kate!

A very memorable photo! Fun.

Great self portrait! You've made a bed of those fallen leaves.

With all of your portraits of others, it was certainly your turn.

Nice to see you this morning, Steffe! What a good idea for a self portrait. The snow picture could be soon, I think.

What? You didn't interview this guy? What are his hobbies? What is he going to do with his life when he grows up? Is he going to grow up?

i like that you dont remove the leafs. its so much better with them all on the ground... it will be long enough before there are new ones on the trees, nice to enjoy them a little longer on the ground!

Can't remember when last I saw snow.

Please have a good Thursday.

What blue eyes you have! Looking forward to the snow angel Steffe.

Peter said...

Look forward to the 3 other seasons.

Stephanie said...

Blue is definitely your color with those eyes!
