Love putting the camera on timer and selecting multiple shots. It's always the candid moments between shots that reveal things about yourself. Supressed anguish or sadness on bad days, and on the good days like this one, playfullness. I think the playful shots always surpirse me the most because I spend so much time, in an academic environment. Where rationality, means seriousness, sternness, an emotionless distancing. Everyday academia distances me from myself. It is a sunken place. So I'm often surprised that within that, there are moments when I escape and I am playful again.
