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...

From the Bronx to Milton Keynes, via Leeds - my new shirt.

I beam a smile that Bronxelf thought enough of me to send me this shirt. Geo carried it across the Altlantic, brought it to term, and gave birth to this lovely piece of sartorial elegance in Leeds, at Beth's Sela exhibition. I brought it back to MK on the Monster, and now here it is, documented for your viewing pleasure. With thankyou note on slice of bread.

Bronxelf, it fits! The colour is gorgeous, and the next client i meet is going to get an eyeful of this little number. They won't know what hit them.

Geo, thankyou too for agreeing to bring "the shirt", as it will now be known :)

ooh very nice I didn't notice at Sela - all I remember is the bag you were 'wearing' didn't even check to see what was on your feet :)

Geodyne says:

It suits you, sir. I'm so pleased you like it!

(Note to all - this shot makes it look orange on my screen. It's really a fetching shade of pink.)

I had noticed the lack of flips, by the way. I'd been expecting them, but understand you may not have wanted to wear them on the moster!

Yeah I was about to say, it looks orange in this image but it isn't. It's pink.

Orange shirts go elsewhere. :)

I'm so glad it fits. It had been sitting in my back hall closet forever. Enjoy!
