At age 51 he decided to turn the camera on himself. Heâ€™d been in his little studio taking hundreds of self portraits, trying to get the shot right/right shot. And, to my knowledge, he doesnâ€™t know the guy in the photos. He shot a self portrait a year ago and, after looking at the photo, asked himself, â€œWho is that guy?â€ His camera keeps every capture and when he opens the file, to review the photo, he is there. He looks old and grey. His eyes are a bit droopy. He looks a bit worn to me, like heâ€™s done stuff and been places I donâ€™t know or canâ€™t imagine. Iâ€™m not afraid of him but, his skin has changed, his jet black hair is turning white. His bright eyes are a bit dimmer and covered by glasses, He moves in a different way. I think I like him, hell, I probably love him. I embrace him because I know he will kiss life on the mouth, hug life, and invite life in for a good meal, banter and a great time!
