Not sure if this has been mentioned already, but as soon as i read: self portraiture, i knew instantly to look for Bjorns avatar! :lol:

LOL! I've used the avatar for three purposes already. I took it for a thread in the off topic section, where we had to do our own version of a portrait of Hugh Laurie (hope I got the name right...), then as an avatar and I though, well, let's enter it as a selfportrait too.

Thanks for noticing!

A great thread coming up. I have a good idea already, probably not a winner, but I like it. Just have to wait a few more days till I can take the photo...

You could always take it the next days - to practice and see if you get a good result ;)

Only a little under a week left. I'll see if i can dish something up before it ends :D

I've popped this in the September thread, but in case it hasn't spread:

The next theme will be:

Cold

Present an image that represents this subject, be it something tangible or abstract. As we're dealing with digital photography, we'll embrace post-processing and have no limits in that area.

Good luck, and have fun.


Its a good thing i'm in the desert! NOT! :lol:

Tomis, I bet it can get chilly in your high ground at night or early morning! Just head up to Bryce! Anyway, feel for me - it's coming into Summer down here in the Southern Hemisphere!

Gordon, I had thought of that, but the theme cold was selected over other ideas I had because of the potential of extending beyond weather and the abstract alternatives that are possible.

Hey Tim... Just for the sake of asking what does the stone represent??? I also wear something similar with my dog-tag... It is an eye... Ill have to take a photo of it... It is something my brother gave me before he got home from Iraq. I wear it everyday just like you. My dog-tag however does not say my name, it says my brothers, his unit and a few other things.


Hey, the stone represents "stone of safe travel" - i seem to do a lot of travelling around and ever since i've wore i've had good journeys. I've only ever missed it 3 times, and on those days i had the worse luck ever, last time my car suffered 700 quid damage. i've got the same rock on my keys and one on the rear view mirror. Dog tags i wear just in case i'm ever in a accident, then people can find details quickly. Thats really nice about your dog tags, i wish i had a profound reason like you to wear them, like a real reason like yours. Yeah let me know if you post an image, i'd love to see them, love dog-tags, just as a pure glimpse of someones life. How are you btw??, hope everyone is well in here. appologies for not posting the right size round first hand!!

Why Alex, that is very very nice of you to say and a great compliment coming from you. I'm glad you like it. At 500 pixels it does lose a lot of subtlety in the gradations and the light, but this is something we all struggle with I think.

I hope will stay with Cameralabs and show your photographic talent through picturs of your own kid(s) someday! My old man got his first DSLR (a Rebel XTI) a year ago and is producing some sweet shots of his own - but alas he is on a different continent so I can't model for him much..lol.

A great high-fashion/glamour shot of yourself there Alex. Good rich colors! it reminds me of some of the religious iconographic paintings out of Eastern Europe.

Cheers :-)

Thanks lensbaby!

Lah, well i m planning if things work out the way they are supposed to, to be getting a two boys, that would just be great. In about 9 years time :) my folks had me and my brother at that age and i think its a great age, because they are not to old, or are they too young to be parents. i honestly wouldnt like to be a father of a 18 yr old kid if i would be 58 or something!

But much props to you, great shot!

If my father got a camera, it would still be a problem to get him to capture me in the frame, i dont live at home anymore plus he is a business man whom travels A LOT!

Seeing as how I just got a new lens I will probably do some shots of it soon. When I do I'll PM you and let you know... I to have bad luck if I don't wear mine... Last time I didn't wear it my mom went to the hospital with gallstones and had to have surgery. Lets put it this way, I don't take it off for anything anymore... Not even during a soccer game or volleyball game, I just tuck it away somewhere where the ref. does not see. When my brother got home he gave it to me as a present and for some reason he only gave me something... Nothing to my other brother, nothing to my mom or dad... I don't know why either... Maybe he likes me more... :lol: hehe...

P.S. I think I know who I am voting for... But we will see if any more people post one... I can't wait for next months assignment... I have the best idea...
