The Gallery: Self portrait

NS May 19th, 2010

A bit shy

Getting braver

Chillin' cotside

Eye contact? Perhaps not

There goes my anonymity

This is my contribution to Tara’s Gallery. Thank you, Tara, for finally giving me a reason to experiment with my tripod and timer function. Now head over to Tara’s and check out the other entries, they’re all amazing!

    @Chris, Wow, thanks! I’m glad I look friendly. I really am nicer in real life than my posts might lead one to believe.

    Glad you did them as a series. Great stuff.
    I’m assuming you used your children’s garden tunnel just for photographic purposes . . .

    @Tara, Obviously. Never crawled through it until just then. I’m sure my neighbours thought I was absolutely mad (again) while I crawled through before the timer went.

    @If I Could Escape, You too! I really, really love your avatar/blog banner. That’s so me, kid on leg and wine and computer nearby. We must be kindred spirits.

    Ooh, you look lovely, and not at all as I would have imagined you from your posts! (Don’t know why, but I imagine it involves some prejudice or other!)

    NS Reply:

    @Sandrine, Ha! Were you expecting an angry face and hairy armpits? :D

    Sandrine Reply:

    @NS, Almost certainly! But what I find strange is that I’ve got the same colouring as you plus a soft smiley face and am a not-so-soft spoken feminist! So where does that prejudice come from?

    @Sandrine, I think it’s pretty common to have ideas about what you think someone looks like based on their personality. It’s a prejudice, certainly, but it’s ingrained. We all do it!

    Look at YOU!

    I feel the one of you in the tunnel is symbolic of being born into your new non-anonymous identity.

    @Iota, I’ll have to see how the tunnel feels about that. ;)

  9. Adrenalynn says:

    Great photos! And if you don’t mind me saying, you look kinda stunning in that last one, even considering you’re in a tunnel. That’s an achievement!

    @Adrenalynn, Maybe it’s a magical tunnel then! ;)

    Great pictures, not sure why you’re shy, you’re gorgeous! You remind me of my sister in law to be!

    NS Reply:

    @Baby Genie, I think I was more nervous about putting a face to my blog than about my face itself (though I am having an extraordinarily spotty stage right now). Thanks for the comment. :)

    I like your tentative steps there, to the end where you look completely different to how I had imagined. Lovely. Not that I thought you weren’t of course…and you look so so young!

    NS Reply:

    @Nova, Yes, I’ve been told I look younger than I am for most of my life.

  14. Great photos!!

    Its funny that the last one is how I’d actually pictured you in my head…

    Oh and you have a DSLR, right? Get a remote, they are cheap as chips and soooooo fun. Or in our native tongue, they are simple “awesome” ;)

    @slugs on the refrigerator, Now that I am comfy using the tripod I’m definitely going to! It was a bit of a pain running to get in place in front of the lens before it snapped the photo.

    Glad to know at least one person thinks I look like what they’d imagined!

    Wow – whoda thunk such acerbic (and brilliant) posts could come from such an angelic looking gal?

    I adore the final shoot, you look stunning and the lighting is fantastic

  21. Exactly what Mum at TheMadHouse said. The last shot, where you’re not hiding, is the loveliest of the lot. Although the snuggly one is very cool too.

  22. Fab pictures, love the braver and braver idea.

  23. Glad you tagged that under confidence. It looks like you’ve got loads! Lovely pics.

  24. Krista says:

    I feel privileged – I already knew how beautiful you are! Fantastic photos that made me smile today. :)

  25. Lovely pictures. And yes, I agree it’s a good excuse to experiment with the camera!
