The Me In The Mirror…

I use this photograph as my profile pic here in this blog. Mainly because this is the first self-portrait I remember taking that I like. Me taking me. Shooting. Me. An Unrevealed Me. In my birthplace Melaka. Looking nothing like Melaka 🙂 Yes it’s almost thesis worthy 😉 …  real fun for my shrink at least. If I had one that is.

But moving away from the philosophical psychological layers of self-analysis 🙂 I just like how the light falls in from the left. Bringing out the richness in that old hanging oil, falling on a thoroughly modern me. How my camera practically pops out of the frame. How modern and medieval limbs are all akimbo 🙂 Yeah – liking this a lot.

Melaka. Sep 2009

And of course this has now started a little ritual of narcissism of sorts

Am happiest when exploring our ever-shrinking big blue marble with my camera in hand.
