Love the composition and the black and white. Very Arty.

Thanks, it went black and white because the light was too yellow in the colour version!

Agree it's very arty and also a very apt self portrait: Mummy taking pictures of her boy.
Thank you, he was using me as a climbing frame.

I love this photo so much, not just because the boy looks SO cute but because you are in it too!
February 5, 2013 at 7:45 pm
Thank you, I'm a bit fond of it.

What a great idea for a shot. Beautifully done.

I was a climbing frame at the time, had little choice. Thank you.

Lovely shot. Super cute with your boy just peeping over your head.
February 5, 2013 at 7:48 pm
Thank you, I like how he's staring right into the mirror.

peepo! such a great photo
February 5, 2013 at 7:53 pm
Thank you, I like the way he's looking into the camera lens.

Love the photo, one to treasure! Do you convert it to b & w and do the vignetting in Pic Monkey, I wonder.
February 5, 2013 at 7:54 pm
I did indeed. In actual fact the light in our living room is so subdued and slightly yellow in tone that it looked dreadful in colour.

Love it! Might have to try that one. At least I could put a picture of me on the blog that way!
February 5, 2013 at 7:55 pm
It's the only way I'll appear! He was climbing all over me at the time!

Thank you, looks much better in black and white!

That is the perfect photo for you…if that makes any sense
February 5, 2013 at 8:03 pm
Thank you! I think so too, in that he features most prominently and I'm there, but hidden behind the camera? Does that make sense? Of course, it's entirely what you meant!

Beautiful. Love the way he is staring so intently.
February 5, 2013 at 8:09 pm
Thank you, it's what gets me about the photo too!
Very arty shot
February 5, 2013 at 8:18 pm
Thanks, wasn't intended to be but kind of happened that way.
February 3, 2013 at 8:05 pm
Hello you!! love how the boy is peeking too!
February 5, 2013 at 8:20 pm
Thank you, quite chuffed with the result.

Very symbolic, very effective. Oh, and you're not a green-headed alien after all…
February 5, 2013 at 8:21 pm

i really, really love this and when i saw it on instagram (?) the other day my first thought was you should have that as your twitter avatar!
February 5, 2013 at 8:22 pm
Thanks Jenny, I love it too. Rare for me to be in it but I'm not really in it.
February 4, 2013 at 5:46 pm
Lovely photo, has that sort of sixties feel to it.
It does, doesn't it? Hadn't realised before you said. Thanks.
