me & pantufa

Uploaded: September 15, 2003


this is a self-portrait i include after reading the William Raco´comments of his wonderful self-portrait. Hope you´ll also do the same. I don´t have IR filter and do have wrinkles, ... i only hope i´ll catch more wrinkles while smiling and taking photos (from closing one eye while looking through the other...) !!! It´s nice to be here with you!

Wrinkles give character, and I see two wonderful characters here, Susana! Marvelous photo! #201503

Susana Matos September 15, 2003

well, you are really nice with me!! It´s pleasant to have so nice comments!
Even more after a car-crash, my second in two monthes after years of driving! The first one was just little thing, but this time... not so nice! And still have to say I was lucky for not being crushed by the truck !!
So, it´s 4 am and I had a nightmare and can´t sleep...
nice to have this place that makes me forget all that!
So, be carefull, a second of hurry can cost too much!
Cheers Su #201510

Patricia Marroquin September 16, 2003

Very nice shot of you and Pantufa. Great to meet you, Su! #201596

Susana Matos September 16, 2003

Hi Patricia, thank you for the nice comment, it´s funny to see "the person behind the photos", as we get to know each other through our comments.

Hi Marta, yesterday you made me laugh, what was much needed after the car-crash I had. I do not have 60 years, a little more than half of those years, but hope to reach them and still have a smile (made of thousand wrinckles... ) and a little puppy in my arms, and maybe other grown up "puppies" surrounding me...
Thank you for taking the time to write your comment.
YOU were all very nice!!!
So, I suppose this has began........

Best regards, Su #201721

Evy Johansen level-classic September 16, 2003

Marta Azevedo September 16, 2003

Thank you very much, I think it´s just nice to see the face under the photos, after all we almost get to know each other by our names and comments.

Oksana Oksamit September 20, 2003

Hi Su!
You look Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #207037

Gabriela Cunha September 21, 2003

su, your pantufa is really beatiful on photos too, as well as live! wrinkles, what wrinkles? we don't have wrinkles!!!!!
I agree with Marta in one thing: you reached a calmness inside and an understanding of the beautiful world you live in that sometimes one does only reach when one turns 60 or later (if one is lucky)... of course I'm not talking of a reached goal, but as life as the path... keep on growing more wrinkles, out of taking shots and smiling...
