Reunite the bloggers!


Exciting news! Today I will be meeting Sally, my fellow Sydney DP blogger. We've never met before so I am posting this self-portrait so she can recognise me ;-) .............. I'm often on this train so during one of my trips I started playing with the reflection in the window. It took me a while to find the right angle to catch my face and I was just getting the gist of it when we passed another train. The result is... this. What do you think of it?

Grande nouvelle : aujourd'hui je vais rencontrer Sally, qui fait aussi une photo par jour de Sydney. Comme nous ne nous sommes jamais vues, je poste aujourd'hui un autoportrait pour l'aider à me reconnaître ;-) ......... Ce train de banlieue, je le prends régulièrement, alors un jour j'ai joué à chercher mon reflet dans la vitre. Visant un peu au hasard à bout de bras, j'ai mis du temps à trouver le bon angle - et puis soudain nous avons croisé un autre train et ça a donné... ça ! Qu'en pensez-vous ?

Stupendous self-portrait. Well done, well done indeed!

I think this is a really great shot! It has a lot of movement and depth going on inside it... Sort of a "time and space" feeling to it..

Annie said...

I think it's a marvelous catch!

And wouldn't this be a wonderful poster for a movie . . . it's very eye-catching,gives the viewer a pause, and hey, you look like a movie star.

Elle est jolie cette photo, je n'aime pas bien mettre des photos de face de gens qui ne m'ont pas donné leur accord, mais là cette jeune femme est à son avantage et on ne la reconnait pas bien, la photo est "artistique"

J'espère quand à moi rencontrer olivier un de ces jours (s'il en a le temps car il doit avoir un sapré emploi du temps)

Cergie said...

Mince, c'est une photo de toi ? Tu es jolie

Tre bein!! I have been experimenting with window reflects as well but they haven't come out as nicely as yours.

p/s. Thanks for posting in English and French. Now I can polish up my French. Merci beaucoup.
