    ..... and not a grey hair in sight. You're wearing well!

    And I like your Nonac camera.

    And, just as an afterthought .......

    Knowing the role that photography took on as you danced that little dance, that is a magnificent self-portrait that shows and tells us more about you than a 1000 words could ever do. Brilliant. It's a story, not just a picture.

    Oh, of course. You start getting a SAGA magazine now. They haven't found me yet.

    For those from the rest of the world reading quizzically, Saga is an organisation originally established to cater for the, er um, more mature persons (old folks) in our society. They've been working hard over the last few years to change their image and try and appeal to the younger end of the mature market. And over-50s can subscribe to their magazine, book holidays/vacations etc etc.

    Best self portrait I've ever seen - love the colours and the softness of the shot.

    Well done.

    I think it is an amazingly interesting portrait; I don't know what you've done but it is really good.

    This is really a great selfportrait, Sharon!

    It's not a quick snap shot but if gives a very well thought impression.

    Hi Sharon,
    I really do not know where you get these great ideas from, but I love them. I could have thought for a hundred years, about how I would take my own self-portrait and never have come up with something this good.
    I can't put into word how good I think this picture is; so can I just send you some smiley faces; to try and show the smile on my face.
    Well done.

    Best Wishes,

    Hi John,

    I think with self portraits you define what's important to YOU and emphasise that....

    My OH hates this because my face is obscured...each to his own and thanks for the smileys.

    You're very welcome Sharon

    On the other hand, we DO need to work on your camera holding technique though!

    Yep, I thought that, but was too polite to say so!! We need to get that left hand cradling, not grabbing.
