My Mystic Me ~ 'Grilled and Pasted'

Perturbing Self-Portraits
~ Grilled and Pasted ~


Quite a scary one, this. Reminds me of Silence of the Lambs with whattsisname, Anthony Hopkins in that mask. It's funny, I wasn't even feeling that bad that day, but this picture looks like I'd happing rip your face off and have it nice and piping hot in a crêpe with melted cheese and egg, with plenty of salt and pepper just to spice it up a bit. Did you know that there's a cannibal tribe somewhere that call human meat 'long pig'? Well now you do.

I don't know about you, but I'm getting a bit peckish just typing all this rot. You don't fancy popping over, do you, and we can go to a nice quiet place for a bite or two, just you and me, all cosy-like? No? Well, all right, maybe another time. Be seeing you.

My Mystic Me ~ 'Peeling With Feeling'

Scary Self-Portraits
~ Peeling With Feeling ~



Paris streets, you gotta love 'em. You don't know what you'll find. Ever. Not as long as there's weirdos like me around to look. Do you think this scene would have existed if I hadn't seen it? Of course not.

I've just created my little bit of Parisian reality right here in front of you? Whaddya think? Like it? Think it's cool? Crap? Or worst of all, somewhere in between? Well it really doesn't matter, if I'm wrong I'm right; Where I belong I'm right; Where I belong... (name that song).

I think I'm being slowly absorbed by the walls of this city until one day I'll just be a peeling and faded poster on some wall maybe next to a cracked and broken piece of street art by some long forgotten dreamer. Mind wanderer.

My Mystic Me ~ 'Foiled Again'

Scary Self-Portraits
~ Foiled Again ~


It's nice to really mess around with some of those obscure effects buried deep in the menus of your favourite image rincer from time to time.

I must say I like the way the strange colours of my t-shirt are reflected on the body in the magazine I'm reading. Love little touches like that, which are totally unplanned of course.

You can, bizarrely, make out the words apple and raspberry on the t-shirt, which dont' seem to have much to do with anything - well, they don't, which is nice. I also like the way the glasses are far more prominent and clearer than my face, almost as though they had been added by an artist as an afterthought. It's true that the effect makes this picture, but I'm quite fond of it nevertheless. Let's face it, those electric colours do whack you in the face, don't they?

My Mystic Me ~ 'Monkeying Around'

Scary Self-Portraits
~ Monkeying Around ~


Weird, wasted sort of photo, in Barcelona again and still. Liked the way the Gaudi arches were all thrown off kilter. Think my brain went off kilter too this day. It happens sometimes.

Got a massive backlog of self-portraits - if only I could just throw one out every week this wouldn't happen. But there are always so many great shots of Paris I have to get out there, poor old me gets a bit neglected oftentimes. So maybe I'll do another one right now! And maybe not. Scream if you wanna go faster...
