A photograph of me taken in 2009 by my friend Jitka. I'm reading a book of photographs by Araki in my old flat in Hackney. Although I'm not particularly a fan of Araki it seems appropriate as I've been collecting photography books for well over forty years and often have my nose in one. It also reminds me of my old flat and my friend, who has since returned to her home town in the Czech Republic.

Me in my preferred outfit for trans-Atlantic travel...

Sleep mask,
airplane air anti-germ mask,
bottle of Xanax.

"Good night. Wake me when you can see Heathrow."

Cg

Yes, I admit the sleep mask looks like Barbie Doll's bra but it's the only truly comfortable one I've found.

I think this define the state of modern photography.

And most of those who come are asking to shrink their nose. Because it is too big on selfie.

This shot was taken by John, a Moderator here on RFF. It was just after a NYC Meet-Up and the guys decided to decorate me with their cameras like a Christmas tree.

I asked John if I could use his shot for my avatar and if could he set it up for me. The comment "Gear Whore #1" John added.

Initially I took offence, but after thinking about it the title was kind of appropriate. LOL. Understand I kinda promote myself as a lazy slacker, but I never really identified as a gear whore before.

When in Key West I handed my M6 50mm cron loaded with Kodachrome 25 to a busker with a couple of macaws. If he ran off with my Leica, I at least had the birds to start a new career. The shot cost me $5. The film tells how long ago that was.

Nothing has changed since I posted this in this thread back in 2012 except Mr. Robinson's heath continues to fail. He now has both legs amputated because of his diabetes. I still stop by to visit him and his daughter still has this photo next to one of President Obama over her fireplace mantle. This all came from me seeing him sitting on his porch and stopping the car then asking I could photograph him.

I was looking for something bold and distinctive back when I joined RFF. This was a high rez scan of a 6x6 neg so I knew it could be cropped substantially. I never considered a photo of myself since I am one of the most ordinary looking people. Plus, the only photos I had of myself were self portraits that would not pass the "skin disclosure" standards here.

I've always been a bit of a Kubrick fan, so I made my own version of the HAL 9000 "eye" using my Summicron.

My avatar was shot a few years ago in a hotel room, using a mirror. It was after a long day shooting an anti-war protest in Austin, and an even longer night of partying. This was shot with one of my last film cameras, a Bessa R2A. The photo was extremely cropped, hence the soft image.

I do x-ray imaging of flowers, shells and objects as an art form and sell through galleries and to museums. I thought It might be fun to see what is in a Leica IIIc and this is what it looks like. I've also x-rayed my M2 baby Rolleiflex and a few other cameras. It's always fun to see what makes things tick. I've thought about doing T shirts of various cameras and selling them.

Mine is simple, me and my camera at the Chicago Bean in a bright and snowy day some years back. I figured what better than using the front facing camera to take a selfie of me and my camera, with the image of me and my camera on the camera, with a selfie of me...........

Other than cropping there is no other post processing.

My avatar is a shot of me shooting into a reflection in a car dealership showroom door. I liked the steps for a simple addition to form. I shot this in 2009. - jim

Me at the central square in Poznan. During summer holidays in 2016, there was a fair in town and i spotted this mirror once i was out and about to take some pictures.
Used my trusty Nikon F90x and it is taken on T-Max 400. HC110 was the developer.

John,

I'm only being honest about my initial response, but it kinda speaks the truth. I'm no longer in denial, and the fact is that I am a gear whore. Now I wear that title as a badge of honor.

Interesting to note that having known poverty that there is a great propensity to hoard things excessively. This is a mark of poverty that still remains. This also explains my infinity for expensive luxury items that is so ghetto.

Interesting to note the cultural aspect of being Chinese. Famine and hunger is strongly remembered cuturally, and instead of asking, "How are you doing?" as a greeting the Chinese way is, "When is the last time you ate?" Food has an enhanced cultural meaning.

Anyways I wear my marks/scars of poverty now as a badge of honor.

We are cool.

Cal

I was visiting Oxford in '08 and came out of a Martini bar (what else to do on a rainy evening in Oxford?) when I came upon this guy juggling in a doorway. Taken with my M8 and likely 28mm Elmarit asph.

I came up with mine when I finally dug my Grandmother's M3 out of the closet and realized I'd never become proficient using it if I didn't get off AUTO.
Still not going to happen, but at least I'm using the lenses that came with all the film cameras I've inherited along the way. Thank you Sony.


Cal - I'd love to see a big picture of your avatar just to see what cameras are hung on you.

I guess I was thinking of my avatar from another forum as I don't have one here. Opps.
