Photo of the Day - Self Portrait
A couple of years ago we lived in Malvern and I was shooting a lot of Kodak T-Max Black and White film mostly because it was cheap and I could process it in the sink at home and we didn't have a lot of money. I shot a lot of rolls and didn't get them all developed before we left for Indonesia. When we got back I rediscovered these rolls and had them developed. The last photo and the next few are from that set.
Today's pic is from one of these rolls that I apparently shot twice. The entirely accidental double-exposures made for some interesting juxtapositions (the word all artsy types love to get a chance to use). This is one of my favorites. It's one of the few pics of myself I actually like, mostly because I seem to have captured that smouldering, male-model, boy-band, album-cover look. That, and it makes it look like I'm thinking of stuff, but it's unclear what.
What do you see in it?
