I took this photo of myself in the window of our Honda Element yesterday. We were parked near the Wilson River. Chloe is secured to my back in her Beco carrier eating a graham cracker and I’m carrying a bag with things to entertain us by the river (a magazine, snacks for Chloe, extra lenses, etc).
I’m kind of throwing the idea around of taking a weekly self-portrait, the challenge being that it would include more than just me. I’m thinking it could include someone else (likely Chloe, or David or Barkley) or a sense of where I’m at when the photo is taken. It would force me to deal with the kind of logistical issues that come with taking that kind of portrait, where I won’t have a lot of control, and making do with what is around me. Not to mention getting over the fact that I rarely ever like how I look in photographs.
