Reverb13 Day Seven: Picture This
Please post your favorite picture of yourself from 2013, self-portrait or otherwise!
About 90% of pictures of me are taken by me. That’s not an ego situation, either. Truth be told, I am neither that great nor that fond of doing it. But I am usually the photographer when my family gets together, and no matter how much pleading and encouraging I do, the others rarely take any pictures.
And as for friends? I am not often invited to social events where pictures are being taken, and when they are, few people ever decide to take a picture of me. Who knows why, but it probably has a lot to do with whatever reasons people don’t engage me in other ways as well. I only know that on Facebook, I am tagged in fewer photos on other people’s pages that most of my friends.
That leaves the selfie, or else I might not ever be documented in pictures!
And this year I have not taken many of them. Not many that have any value, anyway. But this one that I’ve chosen for this post works on a few levels. It’s not a great picture, and my hair is messed up. But it does show me as happy. It’s by and large a warm picture of me, and for lack of a better choice, that’s why it was selected. Happy, warm, natural Ty. (As much as possible when one takes a selfie.)
