Photo of the Day 4/7/18

My friend and fellow blogger, Carol (over at Light Words), prompted me to make a selfie a while ago and I finally got around to doing it. I used the Portrait mode of the native camera in my iPhone X with the Stage Light setting to take this photo and then made a few adjustments with the Luminar app.

The timing on this post couldn’t be better since it is 4 years to the day of my last day working at the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Great picture, Allan. Love the light on the glasses. The green shirt brings out the green in your eyes. One of the best selfies I’ve seen to date 😉

      Thanks. I have been playing around with the blind in this window more and more lately. The diffused light and striped patterns/shadows associated with it are a lot of fun to play with.

    You went for a glamour shot here. Actually there are many levels to the image. First cool glasses but then The far away look gives it depth of a man thinking…where has the time gone? Thanks for the mention.

      You are welcome, Carol, and thank you for your kind words. I have actually been writing some drafts of stories from events long ago. Stay tuned for that series.

        Have my ear to the ground. Always creative to reflect. Which is what your selfie shows. I really like that POV instead of face on.

        I also like that particular POV. It might be an interesting exercise to work with a face-on POV and see what can be done with that format.

      Thanks, Jim. I can you believe it’s been 4 years already?

    So, there you are. Always good to see the person behind the camera and keyboard. Took me years to finally put my photo on my profile.

      Thanks, Angeline. What’s the deal with us not posting our own photos? BTW, yours looks fabulous.

      I’m going to go with the latter. It seems like a million years ago since I was climbing the cables and working in the trade.
