Whatever the photographers intent, he or she is telling you something about the person behind the camera, or in the case of selfies, the person both behind and in front of the camera.
This blog is very personal. I am telling stories about myself and my experiences. I appear to be truthful, but nothing is straightforward as it seems. Sometimes what you see is simply photo-mythology. That is I am showing you artifice as well as fact. It can start with things I know to be true, but in the telling of the story I add embellishments. I do this because I don't know everything so I make stuff up that might be right or wrong. Sometimes, I am just concealing the truth. The viewer needs to decide whether what he or she sees is fact or fiction or a combination of the two.
