Self portrait of a birthday boy

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear me... Happy birthday to me.

I always wanted to try and take one of these rear view mirror self portraits and have just never gotten around to it. So today I though I will give it a go. For Birthday's sake. LOL. I just needed to get out the office and drove down to the beachfront and just did it. After making sure nobody was looking. Didn't know if I would look stupid taking a picture of myself in my cars side mirror.

  1. A-ha there you are, a very good self-portrait, I hate, hate having my photograph taken, aint that bizarre, and therefore avoid self portraits like the plague, you are braver than me, youve done a good job here, well done, and happy birthday to you :-)

  4. Happy birthday! Like Ann, I despise having my photo taken and therefor have never seriously bothered with a self-portrait. I would also have waited until no-one was around - and I think a would have laughed if I saw someone photographing themselves in the mirror, harhar!

  5. hehe, despite being a year older, you are obviously still young enough to care what other people think.... as you get past 50 you reach a point where you really don't care, it is very liberating!! nice pic, worth skulking around for, hehe!

  6. Happy Belated Birthday to you. I think every one should make a self portrait on their birthday.

  7. Feels a bit weird commenting on a post that's more than a year old, but anyway...

    Is that an S8000fd you have there? I ask because it's what I have too, as seen in this rather similar concept photo:
