Self Portrait

Boy on Easter break.Routine shot but have done an awful lot of relaxing. Was sitting on the sofa doing just that and found myself sucking my fingers! Made me think of a bear in Narnia who always denied he was doing it. Anyway. Caught myself doing it and thought I'd snap it. This is an iPhone app called Ansel. I rarely use just one as it seems like cheating somehow but… I did wonder if he'd (Ansel Adams [en.wikipedia.org]) be rolling in his grave if he knew you could just touch a screen and create the thing he invested so much of himself in.

I think Ansel Adams would be delighted in the new technology,but would probably stay with what he did best......

But on the other hand, this one has a neat feel of mysterie to it ...
So, this one I also like very much! ;-)

Stunning! And I personally do not care how you did it. What difference does it make really? Has a timeless beauty to it I think.

No more "cheating" than all the other apps... but I prefer NOT to think of it as cheating, simply a head start on editing! 8^)

I'm a life long nail biter myself... so this looks perfectly 'normal' to me!
