Photo Hunt - Still Life With Jaundice

The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is self portrait. Personally I hate to be photographed which is why I tend to live on the other side of the lens inflicting photos on other people

.As a result there are relatively few photos of me. This is a version of the one on my Facebook page

You do look a little green around the gills, as they say! ;-) Seriously, it's an intense self-portrait.

I am most unnatural when I know I'm being photographed.

That is an awesome photo (although it may give me nightmares - you look as if there may be evil deeds on your mind. I do hope I have never annoyed you).

Sue St Clair said...

Great job on the profile pic Jams! Happy weekend, and photo hunt!

CherryPie said...

That is a great photo. But please stop staring me out ;-)

Life Ramblings said...

nice self-portrait. Just like you, i'm one of those who prefer to be behind the lens too.

Carver said...

That's a good one. I'm the same way about usually being behind the camera.

Hi jams, I was wondering whether to participate in this week's Photo Hunt since I share your dislike of being photographed. But after seeing your entry, was inspired to do so.

And it should almost go without saying but I'll say it anyway: hope you are fully recovered from your bout with jaundice!

Great photo for the theme!

Liz said...

Great capture.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Self Portrait.

You look handsome..Happy hunting.

Anneke (Mudhooks) said...

A great photo! I think you look more "sepia" than "jaundiced", unless you are referring to your view on life...

I haven't posted in a few weeks. Life got in the way.

A magnificent self-portrait. I cheated this week.

jmb said...

It's an excellent photo Jams. Yes, I'm back, with Moggs and me both doing Photo Hunt this week. Time for me to get off my duff and blog a little and a portrait of me, well how could I resist. No, not current, never fear.

Mar said...

I love your self-portrait, it looks very professional !

Happy Weekend.

Life Bliss said...

Very good. Fierce. Nice profile picture. :D

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone

H I will come to Scotland and stare at you. Therein you can stare into the heart of greyness!


I'll stop staring when you stop staring too Cherie!


You are right it is my outlook rather than a condition Anneke.

JDeQ said...

I'm with you - far happier behind the lens rather than in front of it.

You are more brave than I. *smile*

Have a super weekend.

I love how the portrait focuses less on the whole face and rather on the expression it generates. Quite dramatic and intense!

EastCoastLife said...

You look different from what I imagine you to be. :P

Wonder if you will meet a blogger from Singapore if I go to the UK for holiday next year?

bookmouse said...

Gosh, that is a very dramatic photograph! Very cool, if a little scary. :)

jams o donnell said...

Thanks Bookmouse, I aim to fear!

That would be very nice ECL

Francis Hunt said...

Great photo, jams!

azahar said...

Ooooh... moody!

susan said...

It's nice to see you.

Syncopated Eyeball said...

Yes, it is nice to see you and it is an intense shot. Womderful! You look like your newphew.

syncopated eyeball said...

oops! Wonderful! You look like your nephew.

Sparkle said...

That's the very same facial expression I get 90% of the time when my human sticks a camera in my face!

nursemyra said...

Excellent!

Knatolee said...

OOOOOO! A beard, love a man with a beard. What a cool photo.

Knatolee said...

You know, Jams, you and the old chap in the previous post look remarkably similar...

Rekha said...

Why does it remind me of a character from Wolverine - Origins??....
Damn cool shot..

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

Stan said...

It's an attractive and effective portrait, Jams.

I don't much like being photographed myself, but it happens.

jams o donnell said...

Why thank you Stan!
