A song of myself.

I have been travelling all around the world taking auto-exposure photos of myself. blaine in denver, april 1999

Postcards and other Image tomfoolery. Yet more photos. Damn the man who sold me that digital camera.

I am not exactly certain why. as with my journal, I seem to think I am recording something for posterity, perhaps attempting to verify my existence empirically. Perhaps I am a narcissist. Perhaps none of the above. Self-portraits are as old as selves. That's reason enough.
