Accidental Art

Originally uploaded by evilgenius

Just fooling around with Photo Booth while getting my oil changed, I took this picture. It turned out much better than I would have expected for such a thing. I expected that the background would have been the strip mall behind me but the MacBook was angled such that it was looking straight into the sky. I do like that Bob Dylan-y, Beatles-y half in shadow look.

CC Chapman thinks this shot reflects kind of an inner war between the light and dark parts of my personality. That might be true, but really I was just dorking with a laptop while bored at a Shell Oil Change place.
This photo was that day’s entry in the Dawn and Drew self-portrait photo pool. It took me two months to start and I’ve managed to miss two days in my first two weeks. I might not be cut out for this.

    I’ve tried to do the daily thing and I can never keep up with it.

    I do really like the shot even if you are just goofing off 🙂
