Self Portrait: Brick Bar Style

It should be no surprise to learn that I love self portraits – I think that most photographs do.   Find me a good reflection and you can leave me alone for hours if not days and I’m always looking for more ways to capture myself.

Que this amazing Christmas gift by close friends: a Lego mini designed to look like me!

Because I’m more than a little bit post modern, I immediately had to photograph it at as shallow a depth of field possible so that you still couldn’t really see “me” in the photograph, a favorite technique of mine in self portraiture.

I did a bit of editing to make the out of focus top of the camera say something more like “Canon” because…a girl has to represent, but otherwise, the idea is all their’s…

And I absolutely adore it.
