There were several pointers for white allies at the rally from the last couple of posts. While, I generally felt I was following many of the suggestions, one where I have not been active is patronizing black-owned businesses. An easy step to take was to grab dinner from one of the many restaurants that are still serving take out. We went to Chocolat on 120th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd and while we were waiting for our order, I took this self portrait half out the window. We can recommend the delicious salmon burger and shrimp quesadillas.
In isolation for months now, running out of things to turn my lens on so more self-portraits documenting the transformation in personal grooming I’ve been undergoing…
Another mirror self-portrait, this time shooting telephoto at 200mm (300mm e). Came out pretty well – pity about the subject.
This one shot in a mirror with the macro lens and the Litra cube held deeply enough under my face to shade my forehead but brighten my eye sockets.
Shot into an ancient door-mounted mirror with glare from the shoe-mounted Litra cube.
It was freezing in the apartment for some reason so I’d switched first to a sweater and then to a hoodie. Seeing myself in the mirror, I thought there’s one crazy, old, angry guy.
There was something really cool outside the window that evening I wanted to get. But just at the moment I was ready to snap the shutter, someone turned on all the lights and I got a totally different shot.
