Day 309

Day 309, originally uploaded by MichBaldwin.

I sat on the line about adding this photo to the blog, and just keeping it on flickr. (Guys if you aren't checking the flickr, you are missing photos in the line, as I'm busy lately I've not been able to update every day.) However this one is a result of this project and an important part of it. I don't think this is technically a perfect or even good photograph, but I think in the spirit of challenging and experimenting with what a self portrait is, it really says a lot. People wonder why I photograph my face, and my feet more than almost anything else. The reason is they are very expressive. I never realized how someone holds their feet means something, but I can communicate so many emotions through my feet, it's amazing. Sometimes i'll have a hand or an arm, but really they seem less expressive. This photo works on an emotional level for me because I feel just the hint of me having my head on my arm, which only usually means a few things.

Anyways, though it's not one of my favorites, it is an important piece of the project.
