126/365+1: My Own Self


126/365+1: My Own Self, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

I wish I had a photo of my mother smiling. I am my mother's nose. And my father's eyes. And my brother's smirk. And my older sister's heart, and my younger sister's sense of what's fair.

But I am my own self. A bit of everyone in my family, with a broad streak of "Where the hell did SHE come from???" thrown in.

And I'm smilin' at you.

I left a little comment on the Flickr page for this one already, but it's worth saying again what a great self-portrait this is. It seems unposed and frank. I think it's actually easier a lot of the time to do the "creative" self-portrait with gimmicks and whatnot than it is to just take a picture of yourself, right there, as you are.
