Me, in parts

.
The final theme for Project Show Me is "you".
.
I would have loved to use this shot again (which first appeared here, and which I think Robert suspected when he said "a self portrait; your hands; your feet (I know some of you will be all over this one!); a shielded view of you; any way you want to portray yourself will work here." but I'm trying to be a good team player and take a new shot especially for the project as requested. (Who'd have suspected that I was a closet rule-follower? Certainly not me...) It's still a favorite of mine though. Quirky, a bit different, irreverent. A lot like the rest of me in fact. (See how I just snuck it in here anyway without overtly using it as my "Show Me" shot? I'm so sneaky...)
.

Since I can't use the feet shot and I'm both horribly unphotogenic (yes really, even my own mother says I look awful in pictures) and am wearing an old ripped up t-shirt and shorts with my hair up in a sloppy bun there is no chance in hell that you will get a proper self-portrait. Instead, you'll have to settle for an artist's rendering.

I think it looks just like me, don't you?

Just think, it could have been worse. I could have subjected you to this instead:

Great post...nice way to end the week. It's been fun playing along!

Dr.John said...

Well now we know what you look like. ( Sort of)

Bazza said...

I compared the drawing with your profile picture, seperated at birth, no question.

Riccardo said...

I prefer to hide my feet in shoes, lol ! Nice interpretation !

LOL you are too funny... Love the smiley face....

Raven said...

This is very funny! I love all three shots. My feet could quite possibly have a Medusa effect worse than my face so I opted for the lesser of two evils...

Fun shots! It's been great seeing all your photos this week and getting to know you more. :D

Jeanne Damoff said...

LOVE your artist's rendering. :)

Carletta said...

Wonderful post - cleverly done.

I loved Bazza's comment!

Your picture in your sidebar is quite nice too - your Mom must just be kidding you.

Robin said...

Sadly Carletta she's not - it took me 92 shots to get that one. Literally. I'm a nightmare to photograph.

Robin, you and all of your parts are truly lovely.

Now for the aquarium ... you need to come here and visit our coral reef tanks -- both the inside and the outside ones. OC and I spent so much time hanging over the outside one a few weeks ago that we burnt ourselves crispy.

Robin,
You have me cracking up at the artist's rendition! And how did I know I'd see some feet here today??? Thank you so much for making my first photo project such a success. I thoroughly enjoyed coming here to see what you'd come up with. :)

Lis Garrett said...

Ha! I love it!

And I do NOT think you are unphotogenic. :-)

PS - I have to apologize for the fact that I skipped right over your last post. You see, I'm a bit phobic of fish. As soon as I saw the picture, I let out a little shriek and closed my browser down lickety split!

anymommy said...

Perfect! That first shot is so cool, but I love your interpretation of the project.

Shannon said...

Since I have not a lick of drawing ability, my self portrait would look an awful lot like yours. Twins perhaps?

I adore hands and feet. I feel like they are such important parts of people. They are how we move about in the world so I just loved this.

Janet said...

I think you're very photogenic; hands, feet and everything else as well :-)
