The reason I lie dead, face down, motionless, deathlike, or downright immobile in a lot of these photos is simply due to the long exposure of them. Otherwise, the photo wouldn’t come out right and I would be blurry.
Not so cool and a little too technical? Well………..
……….I guess there are other reasons.
For instance – to come up with an interesting self-portrait every day for an entire year, there are only so many ways to do it.
I have found that doing a sort of dramatic pose as seen makes the photo more interesting. Face digging into the street tipping my hat off to you in almost epic kind of “TA-DA” is what came to mind at this particular time.
That said – you know what I like most about this project? The fact that for me it’s become like a sort of journal that I am forced to write in everyday. And when I’m done, and I make my little book out of it – I can pick it up in the year 2050 and read it.
I imagine my thoughts of things when I’m 75 years old will be MUCH different than my feelings when I was a wee bit 31. Not to mention I’ll look different. I can’t wait to look back on this shit and see myself and hear my thoughts when I was tiny boy at 31 and go, “haha what a naive asshole”.
Earlier today I was sitting outside my apartment smoking a cigarette. It was my first cigarette of the day – but oh boy I enjoyed it.
I sat there as the sun was setting and watched a bird fly in the sky. But I didn’t really think about the bird so much that I reflected upon the notion of the bird going nowhere. It sort of flew around with no destination, wings spread out until I could see it no longer.
And it got me to thinking that there is so much going on around me. The bird, the football game in my house, the syndicated Wheel of Fortune going on in my neighbors house, the kid riding his scooter coming home for dinner, the 2 teenage girls giggling walking back home, and the 4 dudes walking out towards the road where the one of them tapped with his hand sort of jumped hitting the top of a fixture in a playful fashion, and all the bugs and amoebas that I can’t even see?
I guess this is why I enjoy my cigarettes outside. It kind of let’s me get away from the bullshit going on even in MY OWN APARTMENT and gives me a moment to mull over my own world and possibly anything outside of it.
Relaxing and meditative.
The shot at hand? Just me walking around with a tripod and a camera around my neighborhood searching for yet another shot. I liked the lighting on this asshole trashcan in the middle of the street.
Sooo – I thought I would kind of construe myself in the middle of the road and make a photo out of it.
