self-portraits

Wednesday opened with a snowstorm. Giant fat flakes clinging to tree limbs and telephone wires, the kind of snow people wish for every Christmas. The day grew warmer, the snow melted – three seasons in a work day’s time. You can’t trust March. Its unpredictable weather, a month without identity: not quite winter, but not yet spring. The year starts for me here, a place where I can leave behind the dark months and push forward to spring with its obvious “fresh start” metaphors. Reorganize, reflect. Stay focused and allow myself the luxury to dream.

The mirror self-portraits are superb, Lisa. (Gorgeous dress!) There is something about the feeling of being confined in a small space (with-in the mirror) that reminds me of photobooth images.

Katherine, that is a brilliant way of seeing the window space as photo booth (where I also shoot the object photos!). I love it so much – it has a curtain, and such limited space. Thank you for this – it makes me see it in a whole different light.

It’s pretty adorable to see you relaxing on a weekend afternoon with these – all you need is a hammock!

Perfect description of March and the “dark months” thankfully being left behind. The self portraits are like a pair of eyes seeing different images and that last image is totally bizarre. B&W photos are perfect for March. Thanks Lisa

Ooh, thanks, Michael – I like the description you gave of the two self-portraits being eyes seeing differently. The one at the bottom with the strange animal on the page is Jeff reading a copy of a Man, Myth and Magic magazine – a Valentine’s gift ; ).
