As promised, here is the picture my wife took of me, on stage at the Dublin Irish Festival, 2010. It was one of my proudest moments, having a back-stage pass to the DIF, where I could capture a moment like this, where a musician was having a rough morning, but had to put on a show. I love this image because, well, its me (Yes, I have that kind of ego), my wife took it, and I was having a great time.
Next up, an image of me at our last Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. I was setting up my camera and tripod so that I could capture images as cars passed the finish line. But the images were not intended to be of the cars, but the kids. You can see better my angle and set up here. The set didn’t turn out quite as I hoped, but I like this image because it demonstrates just what a goofy look I have to put on my face to ignore the pain induced by shoving my nose against the LCD screen.
Here’s a great shot of me graciously accepting the thanks offered to me for being the de facto Pack photographer for a couple of years. I memorialized the occasion by aping for my own camera. Thankfully someone caught the moment to prove just what I goof-ball I can be.
Last in the “me” category of metaphotograpy is the perfect combination of my son being a ham and me taking a picture of it. Really, he does understand the difference between a flash and a camera, especially now that he has permanent spots burned into his retinas from staring directly at the flash. But hey, that’s what you get messing with a photog dad.
