I wanted a pictures of us to send the kids on our anniversary and didn't want to take the time to set up the tripod and do it half way right, so I just took the P&S and held it at arms length on wide angle. Niether of us liked it and Joy will kill me when she finds out I posted this but here goes.
    Wow OT you landed a fox! With eyes like that I am sure you have the girls swooning all over the place.

    ghost pic

    I'll join in the fray... Except, I don't have any self-portrait pics other than cheesy vacation pics w/ my sig. other, so I'm posting this not-very-successful attempt at a ghost photo. The more consp_icuous figure is my sig. other. I am the figure you can barely make out stepping towards her from the left. The setting is Nat's hood - Rockport, MA.

    Re: Self-Portraits

    Ok, ok, I'm convinced. I have one other pic of myself. It's not really in the league of some others that have been posted. But it's at least a self-pic. I did mirror this one so the letters read properly- this was taken in the bathroom mirror. It's more to my liking than the other one I posted, since pretty much none of my face is showing. ;) I would, however, like to see my eye open if I do this one again.
    But then again, what about that one portrait of Ali that's only his gloves? Does a portrait have to show someone's face? Hmmm....
    Some really awesome pics on this thread- keep it up, guys- you rock!

    Speed,

    Buddy, though you clearly lacking the charm, grace, looks, and humility that I have, you are a perfect idol to the God of Self-Portraitism.

    A few more shots like these and the PR chicks might come hunt you down there in Nawth Caylina... warn your wife!!

    Thanks for keeping the self-portrait spirit alive! You do me proud - tear -

    aaahhhhhhhhhhh...

    That's a relief. This thread seemed kinda empty without me in it

    Thanks Nat for "making me look good" (wink wink wink) and for posting a few of me in my time of need.

    Speed - believe it or not buddy I actually am a pretty serious-looking guy. My friends here that I've met in person would attest to that, I'm sure. I just save my "good" shots for you guys...

    Now if I had your grin (and wife! - just kidding) I could pull of "happy looking" all day

    Thanks again guys!

    I'll pass on that.... I was just mentioning because I supposed that John couldnt tell what kind of shoes I was wearing, and they are similar... instead of taps ... the heels and toes are pounded with nails.

    Kilroy was here...

    or at least my interpretation of it.

    Thought I'd throw my silly attempt in the ring. Used the Speed method of holding my camera at arm's length. ;)

    A recent shot of me

    Here I am, about a week and a half ago. I'm bending the rules posting this picture, since I asked my husband to take this shot of me. And I know it is really just a snapshot, not a portrait. But what the heck, I'm joining in on this thread anyway.

    Wow. You may be melodramatic, but you are sure are attractive However, I'm twice your age, hence reaching "dirty old man" status.
