In 2000, Martha made a charcoal portrait of me. In the background she included a labyrinth and a sailboat, both represent important parts of my life. For a digital portrait to send for Martha's blog, I stood cozy'd up to the charcoal portrait and took a bazillion shots to get something that captured the appropriate amounts of charcoal, flesh and flash. I've discovered it isn't easy to take "kind" photos of one's self while holding the camera and not being able to see the display. Practice has to help, even if it is frustrating.
Here is what I managed to create, by standing with Martha's creation. I've called it Portrait with a Portrait.
