Self Portrait: Dancing in the Clouds

Cool Shot! Nice to know that I'm not the only one with the camera in front of me for a self portrait. :)
Have a great day!

Michelle - you are right, I am behind the camera. What I thought was interesting, however, was the cloud formation above me. I always feel like dancing when I get to work with my camera! Taking a picture of a cloud didn't seem to convey the thoughts in my mind. When I saw the clouds in the turn signal of this motorcycle, however, I just knew I had to get it. Serendipity - now that's fun! #608372

Nice job Ben! I have to do a self-portrait for my photography class and I am really struggling with a way to make it creative! You did a great job! #609340

Thanks, everyone, for the encouraging comments. This is one of my favorite captures. I'm grateful to the owner of this bike for liking to keep his/her chrome clean! #610127
