This is me. In all my nearly 40 year old glory. Well, I say ‘all’, what I mean is ‘a fraction of my face and none of my body’ nearly 40 year old glory.
I pondered for a few seconds, maybe even a whole minute, about whether or not to do this one. Because (I know I say it all the time, blah, blah, blah, boring…) I don’t use recognisable pictures on my blog. I could just do a photo of a pile of stuff that I like? Oh, I did that a couple of weeks ago So it’s a real photo or nothing.
I pondered and I thought, sod it! I’ll just take a picture of a bit of me. With my phone. I’ll post it regardless of how bad or blurry I look.
I’m not used to taking photos of myself like ‘the young ones’. Apparently the young ones call them ‘selfies’ and do them all the time. Who knew? (I’ve made myself sound like I’m 75 now, haven’t I?). But I had a go.
You can see my legendary acne, my wedding ring and my lovely glasses. Which everyone has now, but I did have them before a lot of people. Just saying. You can’t really see my eyes. Because the computer screen is reflected in them. As it happens it shows Sticky Fingers, because I was still looking at it as I took the photo. My hair is untidy. I’ve been out in the wind most of the day. Oh, and that’s a bit of a Superdry sleeve you can see, of course. If you look really carefully you can see my blue nails and you might even see the diamond nose stud on the left side of my nose.
So that’s me. Only a bit of me, but it’s me.
