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...

New beginnings

This week I parted company with that crazy lot down on Phils farm. I've had a good four years working there, filled with ups and downs. It's been a great time. Some of my colleagues even turned into friends, so I couldn't ask for more.

So, to celebrate the turn of the page, I shaved my head. Not with clippers mind; i've quite literally shaved it. Wilkinson sworded all the hair (and a few moles) right off. The sensation of touching my freshly shaven dome is quite weird. Wonder if I could start a moblog shave-yer-head-bald club?

nige says:

Actually i haven't decided where i'm moving onto, but i'll probably do something interim for the next year and a bit, until my long term plans come into fruition.

OJ says:

Wow, free, free as a bird. Good for you Nige.

I'm definitely not shaving my head though I'm still not reconciled to the little halo of curls everyone's talked me into keeping so I might get it all cut off and blame you Nige :)

nige says:

Thanks OJ. You don't like the curls? i like them, but if they gotta go, you have an excuse :)

Joker, WS, come on, skin it!

OJ says:

They're pretty but I don't always want to be pretty.

Thanks for the excuse. Be careful with that razor next time!

the shaving experience is always a great feeling - but I wouldn't join you until it turns a wee bit warmer

* notes that the Google ad below is for "Head Shaving For Women" but decides not to click.

I'm intrigued by these latest photos!

Good luck with the change and all that goes with it, but head shaving? I think you can count me OUT of that one for the foreseable future ;)

wtg - Many years ago I was in a hairdressers when the woman gifted me with the phrase 'new hair new man' - which has never applied to me but which I'm sure I'll be able to use one day. Maybe it should be changed to 'new hair new life'...

have fun

Back when I was having some medical problems that were doing a number on my scalp I actually considered shaving my head. Dermatologist talked me out of it though as I would have been too vulnerable to infected follicles and other nasty things. You have a nice head Nige, it looks good on you!
