self-portrait, again

project 52, week 30 (Also: OH YES I JUST DID A SHADOW PHOTO. SO SUE ME.)
People tend to think I'm an extrovert, because I'm friendly and like to talk to people. But really, deep inside, I'm an introvert. I can only handle so many people before I want to crawl in a hole and take a nap.
So some days, the thought of getting a bunch of friends together and going to Punkin Chunkin and "having fun" just makes me tired. So on days like that I take my camera and myself and spend an hour being anonymous, hidden behind the lens.
And that reminds me why I don't do it more. For me, photography is about connection. The anonymity of hiding yields me nothing worth showing to anyone.
I need to remember that.
