I wanted to scratch my head — but I could not find it …

The City Daily Photo theme for April is “My Camera-shy Self Portrait“. Above is my most recent one, at ECC Lighting and Furniture during the Urbis Design Day on March 21.

Quite a few more are found in my growing collection of selfies. Two fine examples (April 12, 2012, and December 22, 2012) below.

    In the first photo you have missed your head 😉
    I like a lot the third one.

    I like your Camera-shy photo. I have one similar to that from a shopping mall along the Champs Elysees in Paris. I’ll have to take a look at your other selfies to get inspired as I don’t do the “normal” ones as I always look awful!
