This was one of those early selfies I made with my then Canon digital camera. Unfortunately, that dear camera got lost. To my disappointment, I had even erased it from my memory its model/type number.
The photo was taken inside our home (obviously). I did not bother to time the camera. I just snapped it and there it was. As expected, the prominent feature of my face is my nose and the mole (that had grown bigger as I grew up). An officemate once asked me if I had my nose ‘lifted’. “Of course not,” I answered. It just happened that my nose got noticeable when I decided to put on contact lenses.
My first reaction to my self-photo was that of puzzlement. To me, it’s entirely different looking at yourself in the mirror. Maybe it’s the distance from the camera, or the angle. I do not know.
I have yet to decide on taking a photography course. From what I read, there are already free basic photography classes. Time is all I need.
I decided to join this photography project once and for all. As I have mentioned in my previous post, I have to do R & R from all the tiring things that are happening in the political scenario in our country. I need a break.
