Santa Fe Self-Portrait

Self-Portrait - Couch a photo by allistair on Flickr.

At the time of this photo, about 8 years ago, I shared a casita with my roommate Will, an easy-going twenty-something about my age who made a living selling vintage western wear. I took this photo one day in December, home alone on a cold day. I took it with a small point-and-shoot digital camera, sitting upon a table, which was sitting upon a chair. I didn't have a tripod, so I stacked furniture to bring the camera to the right eye-level. Then I ran back and forth taking pictures: starting the timer, sitting in the couch, trying to look relaxed nonchalant, waiting for the picture, then running back to the camera for another. I haven't done many self-portraits, since they really are a lot of work. But on the plus side, the models work for cheap.
