Nov 5.

Feet up in front of the fire, reading my favourite book – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy in Four Parts. Unfortunately this photo is totally staged… I never sit down, have a beer and read a book. I never have time! I normally only read when I’m travelling or in bed! But the Hitchhiker’s Guide books are my favourites – along with the Dirk Gently books, also written by Douglas Adams.

Why all the self-portraits recently? I joined the Limerick Camera Club earlier in the year – they have a competition night once a month and the challenge subject for December is “Self-portrait”.

I honestly didn’t think there would be so much effort involved in taking a self portrait. But in the process, I’ve found myself needing longing for some new equipment to make the job a little easier. The downside – there are a few more self portraits to come over the next week or so.

I think that’s my longest post ever!
