125/365+1: Silver Hairs


125/365+1: Silver Hairs, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

I find doing self portrait work very difficult. If I'm not smiling, I think I look angry-it's weird. I took a lot of self portraits yesterday and today. I like this mirror one, because even though the window sheds too much light on the photo, I kind of like the sun on my silver hairs.

I don't have much gray-I'm 56, and don't dye my hair, but I look at those I do have and figure I've earned them.

Here's looking atcha'!

i love my silver hairs. not too may yet, but I can see them when the light catches them.

I'm not even 30 :)

Cool self portrait.

my own youngest daughter looked at this picture of you and said "that is just a beautiful picture!"

I agree with her and I don't think you look angry.

I love my silver hair, I have a lot of them and most of the time they look like the blonde I was in my twenties!

You look fierce. The gleam in your eye makes you look determined and formidable.

By the way, your hair is doing very well for you being fifty-six.

Most people are nothing but gray at that age.

I love this picture. Your eyes are so green and your haircut frames your face so beautifully.

Your eye is beautiful and I love the self portrait. Your hair is pretty too.

You look determined and fierce, but am I the only one that sees just a touch of humor in the look? :)

Jen-I hope not. There is always a streak of humor working in there somewhere.

I love this photo. Great self portrait. I'm 44 and have easily 5 times as much gray hair as you.

lovely, yt! i occasionally admire my own small stable of silver strands -- only visible in certain lights, though one of these days my students (or the bureacracy) will push me to my limit and i'll go silver all over in one fell swoop! silver rules!

I like the heart bokeh too.
