It is better to entertain an idea than to take it home to live with you for the rest of your life.
Self portrait during a lunch break. Russell Street, Sandy Bay. July 2011.
I do a reasonable line in obscure self portraits. If it is not shadow, it is a reflection. If it is not a reflection, it is a foot. Sometimes it is feet AND a reflection!
A foot viewed from different angles is essentially a different foot. Sometimes it just IS a different foot.
Of course, no one shadow is the same as another. Shadows come in all shapes and sizes.
Just as a reflection and a reflection can be very different beasts.
Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time.
Self-portraits can be deliberate, incidental or just plain unique.
