Aie! they will see you!
It turned out so horrible, then I was not ready to show it in colour, so I transformed it in black and white where my freckles showed somewhat less.
In fact, it was also after I have bought a book about famous Auto portraits by Painters and Photographs and most did it showing themselves in a bad mood or angle and not 'nice' or 'beautiful'.
It shows the playful part of me too.
This self-portrait was choosen and voted in 2005 as the Best self on Flickr, and perhaps that is why so many looked at it and commented it.
Now, it was chosen by a student to speak about Brain Damage. But no, I was not brain damaged when I took it nor am I now showing it. It shows some truth - one's hair is not always made up nice and sometimes we are afraid of what we have just done, also this was more or less play acting.
