    C'mon, then, let's see you behind your weapon of choice. Make it as straightforward or as daft as you like. I'll kick off with this:

    Oh John - I hate self portraits. Vanity of vanities, I think is it. But I do like yours very much! You have a definite gargoyle-extraterrestrial thing going on there.:biggrin:

    Aye, well, that's why I said behind the camera. You can retain a certain incognito.

    Here is one that I took with my ยต43s as you can see I have working out with the ultimate in digital retro. Let me tell you the chip in it is huge!

    :biggrin: Yes, and if you'd seen Don's posts over on a thread across the hall about a boom worker's gloves...:wink: Fantastic image, Don.

    Everyone has posted excellent self portraits that are much better than anything I have "in stock". It's going to be tough for me to do this...and it may take time... Meanwhile, I'm having a great time sitting back and looking in at all of yours.:bravo-009:

    I'll work on it, promise! That one I was forced to do for one of Don's Image Quests over on Mu43 was kind of like a trial by ordeal. Now at least I have a little camera that can be placed on a ledge or on my gorillapod.:biggrin:

    well, glad you having fun with the new toy. If you want some shots of Arizona cacti you can ship the camera
    to me and I will be happy to take some photos. I will pay for postage too.

    There is a contest to win a new M9 on Steve Huff's site, that's the only way I could get one of those cam's.

    good shooting mate

    sounds easy - I'll let my wife do that one to give her a "bit of practice" before the summer holidays
