This Week On Dirty Jobs With Mike Rowe… (128/365 year 3)

Project 365 // Day 128, year 3

128/365 year 3 (by Pat Glennon)

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.

  2. First, I LOVE that show! So, of course, this type of gritty image really appeals to me! (You REALLY do look like Mike in this shot!)

    Second, you are so lucky to be a GUY since this sort of treatment on a female face would simply NOT work! 🙂
