Self

… you’ve seen this guy before. And, yes, I also know he’s not as pretty as Tracy, but, believe it or not, he does have some good qualities. Here’s a couple of examples: 1) he’s easy to coax in front a camera, just offer him chocolate, 2) he does just about everything I think he should do and sometimes more, so the interactions good. Of course he’s not perfect and there are a few character defects that are being worked on. He does one thing that bothers me, though. After every shot he has this tendency to run around behind the camera and chimp the LCD looking at the histogram and his expression. He will sometimes grimace and make strange looking faces, maybe a grunt or two, then suggests we try it again. He could also use a haircut!

  1. Monte, nice self portrait — I like the soft feel of the image. But I gotta agree, not as pretty as Tracy. 😉

  3. Very nice, Monty, but you’ve got to keep that guy away from the LCD. He might not know what he’s doing! 🙂

  4. Pretty is in the eye of the beholder–but really, do you want to be pretty??? Nice self portrait, as always.

  5. @Paul: You are right, he may not.

    @Mary Ann: No I do not want to be pretty. I will settle for pretty nice guy.
