Ah well. ‘Tis the Season…

I think it’s time for a Christmas post.
I was trying on my Santa Hat earlier this evening, as you do, when the thought suddenly struck me to have a go at taking another Selfie of myself. Being the hip blogger that I am, I couldn’t resist. I’m not really sure if the phrase ‘taking a Selfie of myself’ is correct, as one wouldn’t really be taking a Selfie of anyone else, but hey, on my blog it’s correct.
So I took Selfie after Selfie, in all manner of different poses and pouts. Some sitting, others standing. Some reclining against a wall, some looking moody. Some in dull light (which didn’t turn out very well!) and some in dull light (which looked better but still terrible). I’ve chosen not to use the dull lit ones, and went for four favourites of mine for for this post. There are hundreds others that I may
bore you with share with you sometime.
The first one is full of angst. The determined and steely grin is softened only by the piercing blue of the eyes in stark contrast with the red and white of the hat. Notice how it oozes a natural kind of electricity and warmth.
The second Selfie is entitled ‘At Rest’. Everything is calm and relaxed. Eyes closed, and motionless, as if in contemplation of something huge. Or nothing at all. Everything is equal in a relaxed state.
The third one I’ve named ‘Spring to Action’. Ready to take on the elements and go with the flow. If you look closely at this one, you may catch a glimpse of eyebrow. But shush, everyone will want to see it. And the Severe Flick is beginning to appear.
The fourth one, ‘Sunday Best’, is the neat and tidy on-parade one. The official Selfie for the Santa Hat Selfie Challenge, which is still to be organised.
I went all out to create these Selfies. I especially wore a smaller-sized red shirt to make me look ever so slightly more portly than normal, just to get the Santa look more authentic. The portly look is particularly obvious on the ones where I’m sitting down, but, unfortunately, they were the ones taken in dull light, and are therefore unusable.
I’m now off for my nightly jog. Those sitting down photos have certainly spurred me on…
Not far away from where I live is an old house on a hill. That’s it pictured above.
It was going to be the setting for a little ghost story, when I noticed something quite remarkable about the image itself.
Long time readers of my blog will know that, on occasion, I post images of trees and plants in which, between the leaves, appear faces and animals.
There aren’t many trees or plants in this picture, but there is clearly a face.
I think it’s a woman’s face, but I could be wrong. Maybe you could tell me what you see in the comments below.
I’ve tweaked the colours slightly, but haven’t done anything else to the image.
The face I see is almost in the centre of the picture, lower half, beside what looks like a question mark.
So, do you see it? Or do you see something else…?
