Project 365 // Day 128, year 3
Pat Glennon stands in as Mike takes a week off.
Today is my birthday. This is my monthly (although I’ve been a bit lazy about them recently) self-portrait.
Why do I look like a coal miner? Why not?
This image is an HDR image and although I look filthy I really was not. It’s just the intensified shadows that make me look so. Check here for the same image without the HDR treatment.
I showed this image to a friend today and she called it ‘awful’. That’s alright I respect her opinion. I actually sorta like it though. Yes, it’s intense, the treatment is unforgiving, I look older than I am, I look like a coal miner, but I like it. Go figure.
