Portrait of a camera-shy photographer ...


Flanders Fields, 2009, originally uploaded by - di.

Gert snuck up on me while we were out on Flanders Fields last month, Gary ... writes this laughing woman.

I'm comfortable with this kind of portrait - the 'caught unawares' style.

I know how to make everyone else relax in front of the lens, just not myself.

Nice to "see" you, Di. You have such beautiful highlights in your hair!

Thank you, Lydia. I was quite surprised about the view actually - it's not one I see. Gary's comment made me go looking for photographs of me and I didn't know Gert had this one until I asked if he had any.

It's a great photo - but I don't know why you don't like shots of your beautiful face! xoxox

Red in the hair, warm in the heart?

I agree - you have beautiful colour in hair, very rich. Its funny to see ourselves from the back huh? I always find it funny to see photos from different angles of myself since we always just see ourselves from the front!

Manic, this is why you remain a favourite ;)

Oh Tara, thank you for your kind kind words, Shashikiran and Ms Parlez Vous too.
