Polaroid CUBE

Any self portrait I make in any medium is likely to be cryptic and symbolic in the extreme.

Selfies are not my thing.  I am not my favorite photographic subject. The best thing about being behind the camera is never having to be in front of it.

With all these things being true,  you may assume that you will very seldom see a photograph of me in these online pages, and one taken by me even less frequently.  But I guess I pressed the “activate” button on my Polaroid Cube toy camera as I was putting it away, and the above is the result.  Square crop from a 16:9 original: mostly cobalt sky, the red strap of my new favorite camera bag, glasses, boonie hat and iPod, and the little purple Crown Royal bag descending on the Cube to return it to my pocket.
