February Photo Fest: Flex
No real story here. I just like how I look in this photo. I like the accidental shaft of light coming in from the left; I like the grooves down the side of my neck; and I like the slightly scruffy beard/eyebrows/hair vibe.
However, what sets this apart from other photos I’ve taken is that also I like the way my arm looks in it! That’s not normally the case: as a runner, a hockey player, a restless mover, my legs – thighs and calves – are pretty tight, but my arms muscles are virtually non-existent. Am I super self-conscious about that? No. Would I like them to be just a bit bigger? Uh huh, yes I would. So when I see photos like this and actually want to show them off rather than hide them, it feels good. Maybe I should flex more often.
