I always feel so vulnerable and exposed when I'm in front of the camera. Even when I subject myself to self portraits, I almost always come away with a sick feeling in my stomach. I just hate it.

So today I've decided to shoot and post a photo of myself no matter how much I hate doing so. After all, one can't always hide behind the camera can they? I think not. At least I can't.

That's me up there, still shying away from the camera but far more comfortable than I've ever allowed myself to be in such a situation…kinda cool.

Now, back behind the camera with me! I like it back here 8-)

I know you're busy Edgar, but don't forget to email me when you get a chance. It can be short. Just to let me know how things are progressing.

Well done! I really like the addition and placement of the photo in the frame behind you too!

I love it Edgar. I have never understood why you are so camera shy when you are so photogenic. Anyway, it is always great to see you and thank you for sharing with us!!!

This is so different from the image I first saw of you, Edgar! That was all about youth and innocence and clear blue eyes, this speaks about maturity and strength, and a pair of macho arms ready to tackle the world around!!! Glad you posted it!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I'm looking at it on my phone and wishing u could drag myself out of bed and see it properly but it's 3.21am and I should be asleep. I want this on my wall. I really do. Don't suppose you're on red bubble are you?
