About This Image

This, of course, was a 35mm black and white shot. I put my Minolta on a tripod, set it up under our lemon tree, put on my hat and pushed the cable release. I think I look sort of moody here, which I usually am not.
BTW: I still have the hat. I'll have to drag it out and give it a try again. We used to sell this type of hat in our leather shop.

Thanks Tmr8. I'm wondering if I can ever do a better sp. I doubt it, even though I have the latest double-whammy digi.

Gary, great SP! Very nicely done. I'm kind of glad you didn't submit this to the SP contest a while back. My goofey shot would not have stood a chance :-). A keeper photo for sure. Don

Thanks Tmr8. I'm going to have to try that shot again. This time, with my new digital camera.

I like the hat and the self portrait. You look serious and deep in thought.

Thanks Alovely. I still have the hat, but it's 24 years later.

Thanks Alex. I just noticed that my last comment was posted twice, two hours apart. That's strange. I wonder how that happened?

Hey Gary,you did a great job on the self portrait,I like the hat too.

Thanks all. Maybe you have it right, Alandra. Reflective/thoughtful. Funny, this was taken 20 years ago, and t I still remember taking it, clearly. I still have the hat, we still have the lemon tree. All that's changed is that the geezer has gotten older.

A very distinguished photo of a very distinguished subject!

wonderful self portrait, Gary. To me, it doesn't appear as "moody", it appears contemplative/thoughtful. Very handsome in any event. Love the hat also.

I think it's a shot with a "mood" but you don't look moody. Lots of character in the face....very nice self portrait.
