Imperfect - Day 95 #CY365

Today was self portrait day and the prompt was - "Imperfect". Many photographers are uncomfortable being on the other side of the camera and I'm no exception, although the "selfie" trend is helping me get a little more comfortable. We were challenged to take a photo that captured you as you were, no special prep. I'm really good at imperfect and this is the result. Taken in the foyer mirror with the camera positioned down and to the left just outside of the reflected frame. Olympus OM-D E-M1, 1/50 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800, existing room light.

Too much is never enough
And too little to never enough
Full speed got me looking out my rear view
I can't go back

From "100 in a 55" as written by Dylan Allison Anthony Greve

Canon G15, 1/50 sec @ f/8, ISO 400.

This biker followed me on Virginia Beach Boulevard. I looked in my rear view mirror at a stoplight and he looked pretty cool illuminated by brake lights. Lucky for me the camera was sitting right there in passenger seat so I took this image looking into the rear view mirror. The low light image has lots of digital noise which is normally not desirable. However, I think it kind of adds to this surreal image. Canon G11, 1/5 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 800.

Rear-view Mirror

- Well technically its a side-view mirror. Looking back on the rush hour traffic waiting behind me to make a left turn from Park Avenue onto Brambelton Avenue to get on I-264 East in Norfolk Virginia. Notice the two cars in the blind-spot mirror can't be seen in the standard mirror - that's why they call it a blind spot. That little mirror has saved me more than once. Canon G11, 1/250 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.

Back Off!

- Yikes! Back off man! This isn't what you want to see in your rearview mirror during a traffic jam on the interstate highway. Canon G11, 1/640 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.
