I've been out there day and night
Working my fingers to the bone
On that dang tractor...
Maybe I should see the light,
And become a movie actor!

I remember my late mother really loved the humor of this self portrait and I am glad it made her smile as at the end of her life there were few times that I saw her beautiful smile that lit up her face. She had the picture on the wall in her room at the Nursing Home.

In the Self Portraits photo essay.

    This photo is hillarious with both your facial expression and bony fingers! This one tops them all for a comedy theme! You could enter it somewhere for a Halloween caption. Blessings from Bonnie

    This really is a work of art, both your photography and your acting. To set your self-timer and then get to this pose is quite a feat!!! Of course, it's probably not a pose at all which is why this looks so realistic!! Love it!!! Very clever and very funny!!

    Andrea Petersen said (5 Feb 2009):

    Thank you all so much for your kind words! This picture even surprised me as I didn't know I could get an expression like that on my face....probably couldn't do it again if I tried! It was 31° F outside and wasn't freezing for a change so that made the difference.
