Pin It

This is Serious Business

News. Photography. All serious stuff. sheesh

 

Selfies. I love them! Gonna keep the commentary short for this one. This is a continuation of my selfie project. If you missed, you can check out some of the older selfies here.

 

I set out to do a selfie today. This is not what I had planned when I left the house. It just happened. I was only a few yards away from a heavily traveled highway. The toilet - totally disgusting! I used wide painters tape to cover the edge and lip of the toilet. Man, am I glad I had that in my truck! Oh…and hand sanitizer! Lots of it!

 


I actually got this in 2 tries. There was nothing wrong with the first one, but I didn't like that my knees were covered. But of course, that meant that this version needed some Photoshop work to uhhh...hide some details. Personal details. The final image is a 3 shot HDR. I copy/pasted a couple parts of one of the single images to get the colors I wanted on the jacket and myself and the newspaper. I really wanted to convey a comical feel.

 

Now, if this makes you spit something on to your monitor. Good.

Did you get a chuckle? Would you ever “expose” yourself like this?

Yes!! I was only skimming and not reading word for word, just caught the words "toilet, disgusting, hand sanitizer," and I'm thinking, what..??? And I laughed out loud (hard!) as I saw the picture!!
Like Amy above, I certainly wouldn't be caught doing that, but oh wow--love it--thanks for the great laugh!
