Explore - day one. Eeek a self portrait!
They both look strange but more like me than any other photograph I have ever seen. This, of course is because it is the me I see in the mirror every time I look while photographs taken by someone else are of me as they see me - quite interesting really.
I am also supposed to write a "Note to Self" about why I am doing this course and stuff like that. I wrote it in my playbook. Now that was fun to make even if I did get one of the pictures upside down ~sigh~ this meant a little jiggling of papers but I am dead pleased with it.
The second self portrait is kind of grainy and when I went back and looked at the mirror I realised that it has a thin coating of dust on it - I am such a good housekeeper that it has only a thin coating.
I am a follower of the Quentin Crisp school of housewifery. When the dust is a quarter inch thick it compacts down and protects the surfaces so under no circumstances should it be moved.
I am also a follower of the Chatsworth school of home decorating. They have rooms that were painted in 1796 and they haven't been touched since so I have decided that my house will not be decorated for two hundred years.... of course I won't care then will I? hee hee.
So I have embarked on my exploration - I wonder where I will go tomorrow.....
