Hello. 3rd November and number 307 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Self portrait taken tonight at home. I was listening to some music while thinking what to do for today’s picture when Tracy Chapman came on and this is the result. Black and white conversion placed onto a texture layer and partially erased.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

Baby Can I hold You by Tracy Chapman

Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like sorry like sorry

Forgive me
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like forgive me forgive me

But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you’d be mine

I love you
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like I love you I love you

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
