  1. I’m all for graphic tees… Very nice.

    Yes, Urban Thought, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt… and the mosquito bites, some of which are still visible on my left arm.

  3. Self portraits always are interesting. This one is, too.

    Thanks, Bobbie! I was originally aiming just for the tee-shirt! Nanabush and Turtle on it made it a must-have souvenir for me.
    But I like the rising sun coming through the maples, and the blank wall (one end of my balcony) , and the extended arms and smile give a warmth to the almost-portrait. None of these elements were intentionally composed, except the smile (the first of the four takes I did had such a frown of librarianish concentration! ) .

    Great picture! I love it when unexpected things get caught in a photo – like smiles, and half faces. It looks like the Summer I’m craving already with one month more of winter to go. Did you know you are more prone to mozzy bites if you have eaten bananas?

    Hi, Alyson! Themarvelousinnature sez there are 3,000 species of mosquitoes around the world. If the Australian skitters like banana-scented people as much as the Canadian ones do, it must definitely be a commonality.
    Glad you like my photo.

    what’s that saying…smile and the whole world ….so true. 🙂 Cool T-shirt too.

    There may be something in that expression, Livingisdetail. E.g. assembled a DVD of photos for her parents’ 50th anniversary this summer. Every time her father saw this photo of himself laughing, he laughed too! (And no, he hasn’t lost any of his mental faculties. )
    Glad you like the tee-shirt. I thought it was tasteful (as opposed to tasty — no spaghetti stains on it yet! )
