how's your face???

i was playing with chris's camera and took a bunch of pics of my face.  the lighting was interesting and i wanted to see if i could see my freckles (age spots), wrinkles, etc... and yes, i can see all those things in these self-portraits.

why does anyone create a self-portrait?  i think it's a way to try to see yourself.  

when i look in the mirror i don't really look at my face.  i wash my face, put on makeup, etc... but i don't really look.  i guess these photos are my way of seeing myself.

what's funny to me is that every angle is different.  every expression is slightly different.  do all of these photos make up a composite of my face?

ah...too much philosophical talk for this early in the morning....
