Who I am on May Day
The self portrait of me on May Day was taken (by me) at the trash heap behind a rural cemetery in Michigan. I had been out walking, talking pictures of wildflowers, and avoiding places where I felt unwelcome. You can read about my adventures on May Day at The Invisible Trail. The pictures for this portrait were taken with an Olympus point and shoot digital camera (Olly). [Camera model C7000Z, focal length 7.9 mm, 1/250 @f/4 ISO 80.] The blue flower in my hair was scavenged from the trash heap and made of cloth--the rue anemones were real. The pictures were combined to make a postcard for my mother who is in a nursing home. View my mother on a nature hike at the same link above. Postcards for my mother are a meaningful excuse for making self-portraits.
