My Camera-Shy Self Portrait

(And, here is an alternate.  Some would say that a 50% discount is not big enough for me.)

The hat is definitely you. I'm trying to figure out how you took that top self-portrait. Bottom: the jacket looks pretty cool on you!

Such a vibrant beach scene. Love it! I think it works great even with your back turned to the camera. :)

That looks like a really pleasant day at the beach Jack.

Jack said...

A tripod and timer, Kate.

I like your self portraits, but really enjoyed all the pictures you posted from Florence and Rome. I can see from these pictures why you spend your winters in Naples. Much more colorful than winters here.

I bet that chair shot was tough to 'take'. I hope to be there soon too. Pass the sunblock.

I wondered about the stability of a tripod in the sand, and the camera! I avoid sand even if there's no wind.

There you are!

Luis Gomez said...

So good Jack!

Sharon Anck said...

A couple of great shots Jack. That beach is looking very inviting.

Sylvia K said...

I love it!! You're such a clever one! And a smile and a giggle to start my day!! Doesn't get any better!

Halcyon said...

Did you have a tripod for your first selfie? You look at home on the beach. :)

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Nice view hey Jack :) Super vibrant beach scene.

Virginia said...

Toes in the sand. It's a hard knock life!

VP said...

The firs is perfect, the other is more in my style... Obviously, I like both!

RedPat said...

So that's what you do all winter down there, Jack! I am getting tired of the cool temps up here this spring so I wish I was there! I like both your shots but especially the beach.

It's a hard life... :-)

I'm ever so slightly disappointed that you aren't wearing pink.

William Kendall said...

Sitting out on the beach, enjoying the weather. Must be rough, but I suppose I could rough it. Good takes on the theme, Jack!

Something I dare not do, having had a scary brush with melanoma. Which reminds me - it's something no one should do. We know better.

Kay said...

Oh, I thought the 50% off was because we've only got half of you!

Randy said...

I like them both. Nice reflection.

EG CameraGirl said...

You looks very comfortable on the beach. I'm wondering if the sign in the second photo means YOU are 50fi off? Just askin', Jack. :))

Fotolosopher said...

Nice and colorful! Love that pier. I can see why you chose this particular spot! I'll bet you pretend to be reading a book, too.

Karl Demetz said...

I recognize the hat !

Joan Perry said...

Good ones!

SRQ said...

Well done. Both self portraits suit you. (How many of these did you end up shooting?)
