Thou understandest my thought afar off. Psalm 139: 2

I shot this today with atmospheric lighting, next to the Plum tree that is just beginning to blossom. It is extremely difficult to not have a self portrait looked posed ...this is the only one that I saved out of several because it is natural and I think it caught my mood as the 10 second self timer was going through its process. I don't do many black and white portraits but this one seemed to fit the type of lighting than if left in color..

Thanks to Ann Reece for nominating my photo... You are very kind!

    Thank you for your kind words and for liking my outfit...A funny story about the crocheted
    vest I am wearing that I bought the day before at a Walmart store. I saw one just like it hanging
    up on display...I asked the clerk if they had another one in my size..She said she would look
    for one and she knew the general location of where she hung it but she could not find it. She
    said they had been selling like hot cakes. Something told me that if I looked I might find it and
    sure enough I found it after a little searching and it was in my size. I guess it was meant for me:)

    Great B&W self-portrait; I like the pattern contrast between the vest and the wild surroundings.

    Thank you Carlos...That is very kind of you to say. Time has a way of slipping away and we
    have to make the best of today, because we can't take back time from yesterday.
