City Daily Photo Theme Day - Me


There is plenty more to come from New York but it's the first of the month and City Daily Photo theme day. There aren't a lot of photos with me in front of the lens. Most of them are for an online class or some exercise I set for myself. These pix are a few years old. The top one is full lawyer battle dress. The second is quiet and shows what RA has done to my hands. Then there is the double arch joke picture on my Facebook page

The theme makes me think of one of my favorite photographers, Cindy Sherman, who photographs herself over and over in a myriad of different personas. You can be whoever you want in an image.

Good takes in both cases. Your first is quite serious.

I love both of these Bob, especially the second. Thank you for the link to Cindy Sherman's work...wow! I was exhausted just looking at the effort she puts into each shot, an unusual concept for sure but it has worked so well for her.

You are looking like a very serious lawyer in the first shot.

You have aged well, hands and all

Susan Bauer said...

I especially love your second shot as "hands" is a favorite photo subject of mine. Well done.

The second pic is so interesting for various reasons! Good post for the theme!

The second photo is interesting and thought provoking. Definitely not your average self portrait!

Kay said...

Okay. I'm sure I'd want to be on your side in a courtroom.
I considered doing a "hand portrait" also. Yours is much better than what I had in mind...though, sadly, it evokes heartfelt sympathy.
Good shots for today's theme.

You look almost stern in the first shot. I think I would not want to face you in a court room.

They are both good hosts, but you look much happier in your profile photo in the sidebar.
