Project 365s are supposed to include self-portraits, right?
I really went back and forth on this one for a number of reasons. Do I really want to include pictures of myself? Is this really the picture I want to include? Is the picture too cold? But my head is cut off! Do I look too fat? Maybe I should take more pictures. Maybe I should use one of the other ones. Maybe I should scrap this whole self-portrait idea and take a picture of a leaf.
As much as I was digging that leaf idea, I swallowed my pride to post this one. My daughter thinks it's cold looking. I suppose I could have added more warmth in post, but for some reason, I liked this one this way. Could be my mood. Ask me again tomorrow, and I might agree with my daughter.
At any rate, it's me. With my head cut off. Done using the point-n-shoot's self-timer feature. Post processing was noise reduction, sharpening, curves adjustment, and I cropped some snow boots out of the shot.
Pardon me while I go hide.
