Weekend Reflections: Self Portrait

The head-top I show with my profile isn't much of a self portrait.  So, I put on a proper green shirt for St. Patrick's Day and took a photo of myself in the bathroom mirrors.

To see other photos of reflections, go visit Newtown Area Photo  any Friday.

Funny! Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who's the funniest of them all?

Jack!!!

We went to dinner at our club last night and wore green because we thought the people we were with were as funny as you and would be all greened up. They were not. They wore brown and tan and blue.

I was green with envy!

But some people there had big green hats and I did take a couple of pictures which I might show sometime. When I feel you can handle such sights.

Heh, heh!

Nice self portrait, Jack! But it looks like your camera was made backwards?!
I like your St. Patrick's Day posting yesterday!
Cheers!

You are daring indeed showing so much of yourself! I'll keep my eyes open whence visiting FM. I like to think your green shirt was in honor of the Spartans, who sadly, botched a lot of brackets last night. Rough season for the boys in green. Izzo should be happy they even got into the Big Dance.

That gets a smile, I, too, like the flash, I'm sure it would compliment my 50D. :)

"Self-portrait as photographer"..I hope to discover "self-portrait as blogger", " as stroller", "as dreamer"...one day!:)

Regina K said...

Gee that is so much better than the half shot....

Sylvia K said...

Great shot. It's crystal clear. Mirror self portraits are common with all of the social network sites (usually teens making dumb faces trying to look cool) so it's refreshing to see one nicely done. Kudos on the festive colors as well.

Thanks for the comments on my night portraits. This trip to SF produced, by far, the best I've ever taken. I've finally started to get a feel for the mechanics of night photos. SF is an easy place to practice too. I'd love to see the Hartford skyline all lit up at night!

Bonjour Jack! I'm so pleased to meet you! And I know you didn't drink the Jameson's, Bailey's and Guinness. I was merely teasing! :-)

'Tsuki said...

Nice job, little canon ! You did a magnificent picture of your human master...

:D

Haddock said...

Did you really use that flash to bounce off the light? If so then the result is pretty good.

Halcyon said...

I like it! It's a self-portrait of you, and your bff, Mr. Canon. :)

Jack said...

I was experimenting with flash or no flash, camera flash or accessory flash, diffuser or no diffuser, direct or bounce. It turned out that the one I liked best was no flash, but I still had the accessory flash and diffuser on the camera so it is confusing.

Kate said...

It's a GREAT self -portrait.

Greensboro Daily Photo said...

Great fun the colors of your hallway match your shirt perfectly!

Dave-CostaRicaDailyPhoto.com said...

Extraordinary framing.

TheChieftess said...

Ahhhh....the classic self portrait of the photographer...well done!!! And nice camera too!!!

JM said...

Fantastic self portrait, Jack! I love the repetition behind you.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

For the record, I like your half picture. Has a puckish quality like your sense of humor.

Gunn said...

Hello Jack!:)
Nice shot.

A good idea! I have to do something like this sooner or later.
