Good challenge, I've been meaning to take more of myself. In a moment of "vanity" (yeah, bad pun) I took this one whilst grooming.

Thanks! I actually intended on capturing the noise, I was hoping to get a grainy B&W look with the image and switched to ISO400 for the effect. It's not the same as the real thing but it's fun trying to see what the camera can do.

I must be missing something. Whats funny about a guy shaving his head? :?:

I like the photo though. Well, about as much as I can like a photo of a half nake man shaving. :lol: Good effort on trying the "fake" film to. It was worth it. Without is it would be too glossy.

I like the montage idea some of you have used...so I decided to copy it.

Rather than post them here, though I have created a yallery at PBase. I'll have to scan some pre-digital photos to fill in blanks...

Nice then and now series! Pun hilarious. And ferny, perhaps you're telling us something about YOURself if you like the photo that much... :-)

Seriously, this is a great photo. I love the black and white and the angle. It's a great "Slice of life."
