My Defective Ear

A 366-day pursuit in personal portraiture, presented by nige.

The challenge: to photograph, and post to this moblog, a portrait shot of myself, every single day, over the next year. Apparently, it's much harder than it sounds...

Perhaps more challenging: that i don't enjoy seeing my phizog in a photo at the best of times, and knowing that i'm probably going to annoy the hell out of the moblog community in doing this. So, sincere apologies in advance for this undertaking, but i just can't help myself. I promise to try and be creative, so you won't have to look at my mug every day.

Anyone interested in joining me? I think i'm probably going to need the company...

It arrived last night. I went out. I almost soiled myself.

Oh lordie. You've gone from pedals to that? Do us all a favour & book a few track days nice & soon, eh? Just to keep you out of A&E...; And if I ever see you tooling about MK in anything less than full leather & CE-approved armour, I'll let your tyres down.
Just so we're clear. ;)

Thanks guys. I think i'll need the well wishes to stay on the bike!

Joe, being a man who loves motors i knew you'd get here at some point :) It's a Monster 600 Corse. The best thing about it is that it is so much better in the flesh. Gorgeous.

nige says:

hildegard, ok, you got it. i will be safe. i don't ride like a nut anyway - i choose to cruise :)

mat says:

So - why did you buy a Ducati then? If you want to cruise, get a BMW. That Monsta ain't made for cruising. :)

hildegard says:

Took the words out of my mouth, Mat.
Nothing unfaired is built for cruising. ;)

I had a look at some BMW's actually - i really like them - but just couldn't shortlist any within the budget i'd set myself for a first bike (£2K). This is an older Monster, but the shape hasn't really changed much over the years. it was the nicest thing i saw for the price. I'll just have to *try and cruise on it... :)

black? hell no!

JokerXL says:

Monstah's gotta look like a Monstah, not a shiny, red, shiny thing.
Black I say! Get the spraycan out man!

nige says:

haha. not a chance. Ducati's shouldn't even be made in black. it's just not meant to be...
