Here is my attempt at a Pre-Raphealite type self-portrait, though it is in color. I love self portraiture. I have written a story about how to do easy self portraiture, and this is one of the set of attached self portraits.
I created my own "filter" here by photographing myself through an old and wavy mirror.

    Thanks Cathi! After age 30, I finally began to LIKE my red hair, and then of course, it was already fading!!!

    Oh, this is so good and different. It actually reminds me of some of Michelangelo paintings, the women in these have that same look, good photography...
