Thank you, Lynn, it’s very kind of you to say so.

This won’t make much sense (most of what I say probably doesn't anyway) but when I look in the mirror I see myself, but when I see myself in a photograph it’s like looking at a stranger.

Not sure which Mike lynnb was referring to, but what are the odds that two Mikes posted self-portraits, back-to-back (Post #559 and #560)?

Ha! It was probably the other Mike that he was complementing. He's better looking than me!

Hi Taipei-metro! and, thank you.

It's actually Lake Mashu in Hokkaido.

Lake Mashu: The world's leading transparent lake, the color is called Mashu blue.
It a mysterious lake where the water level does not change despite no rivers flowing in or out.


All the best,
Mike

My current avatar dates from oh 2013. GXR 33/2.5, natural light, shot through the shower glass. A time of difficulties professional and personal, imbalance between a newly chosen path of recovery and the friends and colleagues who were uncomprehending, and the onset of a cancer that eventually terminated an outgrown marriage. A time when one lives behind glass and wants to break it—then learns to treat it as a door and walk out. Life is far happier, more serene and amiable now.

I published the series here under the title Shielded.

Beautiful series, Robert. I think I remember seeing it when you first published it here on the forum. I like the one you've chosen as your avatar the best, it seems to capture the melancholy. Glad you had photography and art to turn to during a difficult time.

My avatar is also a self-portrait, but mine are more whimsy/vanity than anything. As in, "Oh, I have a Nippon Kogaku Tokyo t-shirt, let me take a photo of myself in the mirror with a Nikon camera and lens!"

Myself after 7 weeks of radiation treatment due to a brain cancer. Lots of hair left apart from where the radiation (protons) entered.. I hope this treatment will keep the tumour quiet for some years. Time will tell.

Hi there, Sumatran ostrich
sorry Peter, added after your reply below: 1981 was my first trip to Aisa, 3 months during vacation from Vienna University studying social anthropology.
Visited people I had studied about, first hill tribes in Thailand's far north, then went south and crossed to Sumatra, right , to see "Batak" and "Minangkabau", highly unique and interesting people.
Minangkabau are one of strongest matriarchal societies alive, only women can own land and inheritance passes to the eldest daughter and they are Muslims: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minangkabau_people

should try to go through my old slides to see if I find more old self portraits
this one isn't very old, from 2007, me VERY tired late on a December night. That time and for many years I used to run a booth at a Christmas market in Vienna.
This meant working at open air during Austrian cold winter season for 10 hours a day continuously for 40 days.
