self portrait tuesday

i decided to jump
on the self portrait tuesday bandwagon.

the February challenge is
"all of me"
embrace your mistakes, love the ugly bits.

i found this an interesting challenge
because it is the exact reason
why i began photography...
i like to be behind the camera
instead of in front of it.
i am not photogenic.
it runs in my family.
which means i look
horrendous in photos...
mouth open,
shadows under my eyes,
ugly moles,
you name it...
so this week i show you
"my bad side" ...
i usually only allow release of photos
that show my good side,
but here is my bad side:

i purposely sit on the metro, busses, and trains
with my bad side towards the window.
no joke.
i prefer to be a passenger in a car for the same reason.
i am not a vain person
but i take a lot of portraits
so i know that people have
angles that are flattering
and angles that aren't.
well. this is my worst angle.
