I was doing yard work the other day. First raking leaves … then mowing the lawn for hopefully the last time before winter and in the process mulching leaves left over from my raking. Then, I was unraveling packs of burlap and winding it around (and around, and around, and around … ok, you get it) my cedars attempting to protect them from the frosty, snowy conditions that seem to burden us in the months to come … and then after all of this, for extra protection, was spending more time working, tying them with jute. I was really feeling all sweaty and shitty … and dirty, but after I was done, with the sun beginning to set, and the wonderful calmness and lighting, I thought that I’d snap a few shots of myself. Let me add, it was no small feat without a swiveling/rotating display on my camera either. But, I tried, and these are a few of the results!!
BTW, self photography is a motherfucking bitch at the best of times!! Oh, and as far as lacking a smile … I’m the happiest-go luckiest, laughing-my-ass-off-motherfucker (so many times inappropriately too … I’m so fucking immature, always cracking up over silly, stupid shit) out there, so please don’t read anything into it … so, I self shoot sans smile … so what? (love the alliteration, completely intentional), like I need to explain myself to y’all!!
