If I remember correctly, my first self portrait here in the House in the Woods, was from August 2007, photographed in southern Italy.
Through a beautiful mirror. While I ran to follow the friends I travelled with. We were in Ravello and wanted to visit Villa Cimbrone before closing time. We did not make it, but not because of my self portrait.
Since then there has been many more. Self portraits I mean. A few through mirrors, many as window reflections.
From around the world. Close. Far away.
Yesterday I had decided to go skiing with Terje.
When I woke up to a bright, warm sun, I would rather go downtown searching for signs of spring.
One of us love winter.
The other love spring.
I did find a few signs.
Like the very first snowdrops.
A warming sun.
But most of all I found a city dirty after a long, snowfilled winter.
Window photographing became the solution.
Until I walked down to the canal.......
....but that´s for another day.
