Unfortunately, you can't see all the flaws in this picture. I made a big point of leaving them in there, so nobody would get the idea that this was a picture of a "lake", no matter how picturesque. It is a picture of myself; as I would like to be, if I could maintain this measure of reserve (no pun intended) all the time; in order to be able to gaze into my inner world without reference to um, reference points, things, situations, people, problems, the ongoing disorganization of my life -to gaze simply at the self, as self, without reference points. That is the aim.
Yes, there were flaws, but I completely bunged them up processing with GIMP (this is my 3rd try, on even more photos) so you'll have to be content with that flaw. Did I mention this picture is for sale?
