My favorite picture of me

Inspired by Beth.

I love this picture of me. My face is what it is -- no makeup, no questioning, no fear; my hair isn't washed or even combed properly; I'm wearing a $5 thrift-store t-shirt. I remember when it was taken. I was at a hungover Sunday brunch with D. and M., and was clowning around for the camera, posing like a supermodel (much to the delight of D. and to the embarrassment of M.); at the instant D. took this shot, I relaxed and started laughing at how silly I was being. This is me, purely me.

Love it! One of my most beloved photographs of myself is me laughing at who knows what. Photos like this always make you smile.

They're so honest and real and true to the person's spirit.

Yes! What a wonderful shot - I'm just filled with your laugh!

Candid shots are the best - the problem with digital cameras is (IMO) it's so hard to get that candid shot because there's always someone shouting "oh I look horrible, take one more!". That's why I'm old school and sticking with SLR (that, and I have no idea how to use digital).

I think this actually might have been done with a digital camera...but fortunately, it didn't get deleted (there are many where I look much "better", but this one is so ME!)

Thanks! I thought about posting it on an on-line personal ad (back in the days where I believed that on-line dating was possible, but that's a different post entirely)...but then chickened out because I didn't think I'd get any responses. Though I suppose any responses I got would be from really good guys, right? Hmmm...maybe I should re-think the on-line dating thing!
