Someone recently told me how much they loved this self portrait, I took it one morning when I saw some gentle light cast on the floor of this room. The image encapsulates for me the escapism of self portraiture, the lost-in-the-moment feel... the warm softness of the fleecy blanket, the vunerability. Clearly I should be drying hair, getting dressed, or something pressing, yet the moment was stolen and a photo made, a memory captured. I remember that moment well, any photo you take, if it has emotion in it, will transport you back to that time, those feelings, those reasons. It's not just about a photo of me on the floor in a blanket, you can decide what you see here, am I revealing or concealing? Thinking or dreaming? Really only I will know the answer to that. Who am I really, and whats inside my head? If you actually know me, you will read the list of things I like and know some of them already. For those who don't...these things make me tick.
