So I am going to start posting a few self-portraits here. To indulge my narcissism. Or, perhaps, to help me to experiment with taking a few pictures of something besides flowers.
I snapped this one in the bathroom mirror just after I returned home from my morning swim. You can see my left ear–the one that had the pre-cancerous birthmark that was removed and regular skin grafted on in its place. I think the doctor did a pretty good job with the surgery, as you can hardly see which parts are grafted and which aren’t. I had this surgery nearly 25 years ago and it’s still quite weird to me that I can’t ‘feel’ my ear at all because of the graft. Just this morning my earring came out as I was towel-drying my hair at poolside and it took awhile for me to get it back in because I couldn’t feel my earlobe at all.
