Remains of the day

That is a very GLUM face...

I think you have not perfected the art of taking self portraits.

My self portraits are always more more smiley than those taken by others... Probably because they take toooo long to press that shutter and my smile has become fixed!

Positively sombre. Did something in particular provoke that less than smiling face?

Your Nibus seems to have shrunk to no more than a spot!

Now there's a face in need of pole dancing!

I do not tend to smile at myself. Can't imagine why. What you see is what you get.

Totally agree with your comment, Don. Take it or leave it.

Although on 04/08/11, there is a great photo of you smiling. That's the one I keep in mind.

Don QuiScottie said...

Ah yes... I think I did smile once in 2011 :) (Although I can't see it on 4th August. Did you mean the 8th?)

Trip to Kintyre?

Don QuiScottie said...

Ah, April, you use month/day/year system rather than the (more logical) day/month/year system we use (and Canadian time because in UK time it appeared on 9th not 8th, but I found it. Gosh I was a lot fatter then though. Thanks for the memory.

Anyway, Cherie, you are not smiling in the self-portrait that accompanies your comments, indeed some may say you look rather glum... but I know that just because someone is not smiling does not mean they are glum or sad. Not smiling is the default mode for a face isn't it? Or am I unusual? (I was tempted to insert a smiley here, but I will resist). Anyway, as my latest post reveals, I am away from blogging and commenting for a while as from Saturday morning. Bye for now.

That is my thinking face... I really should change that photo for a newer one ;-)

Enjoy your break and I look forward to your posts and comments when you return.

Is that you perched on the edge of a bench in the last pic? I like it.

Have you read the book 'The Remains of the Day'? I thought it was excellent.

(I thought it best not to mention the, um, middle picture...)

There were two beautiful photos by Alison Scott - very atmospheric but it said:

Sitting comfortably on a seat by a table Syncy, not perched on the edge.
