This is just a funny self-portrait that I took one day at the office when I was goofing off. I can’t even remember now how I did it. All I know is it entailed using a mouse, a point-and-shoot, and Photo Booth.
So much for professionalism, on so many scores.
Nonetheless, looking at this picture kindles in me a feeling of proud kinship with those clever Renaissance painters who enjoyed finding ways to paint themselves into a scene.
There was a joyful moment of discovery when I found that I could use Photo Booth to take a picture of my office, with me in it, using the mouse at a distance. Then, I think, I took a picture of that.
