My Defective Ear

A 366-day pursuit in personal portraiture, presented by nige.

The challenge: to photograph, and post to this moblog, a portrait shot of myself, every single day, over the next year. Apparently, it's much harder than it sounds...

Perhaps more challenging: that i don't enjoy seeing my phizog in a photo at the best of times, and knowing that i'm probably going to annoy the hell out of the moblog community in doing this. So, sincere apologies in advance for this undertaking, but i just can't help myself. I promise to try and be creative, so you won't have to look at my mug every day.

Anyone interested in joining me? I think i'm probably going to need the company...

nige says:

better send Griff over and we'll duke it out, t.

everyone has to face the glove sometimes, sprocket, but i have a velvet touch, so, you know, it doesnt hurt...too much.

Crossbows?! one for every employee? For "circling the wagons and shooting inwards?" (that may be a North American metaphor)

Mr Nige, sir, what a good project! Knowing the story, I like this shot even more.
I think with all these tests and discipline we impose on ourselves, it's getting through the ordinariness of it, once the honeymoon is over, that really gets you... and really cultivates you - just like life then..? :-)

Got a friend who just completed her 111111 prostrations (a buddhist thing), and I must say I'm a little envious of those setting off on such a journey, like yours and hers.

I would like to join you, but right now I'm on another journey, and it seems ill-timed to do so.

Go for it, Nige!

*still reeling over the crossbow thing*

lilitiger - thanks! the 111111 prostrations is much more involved, i think, but no doubt this project will definitely get harder as the days go by. we'll see. good luck with your own journey.

nige says:

hehe. bored already? wow.

i won't just do headshots, no. in fact, when i looked at the flickr group on this, they counted any part of the body, or your shadow, as a worthy shot. i guess it can be anything to do with your image, really.
