7 — Motion

Pro Tip: See this shot on my flickr here and follow me on twitter or facebook to keep up with this project.

Seven Days of Self Day 07 — Motion: So you might be a little confused… there is no motion in the picture above or the one on flickr. This is because they are only a preview of the image you can see the motion in the image below. I’ve wanted to do a cinemagraph for a while & thought this would be a pretty good opportunity. Unsurprisingly they are quite tricky to produce as a self portrait. I am sure I’ll be doing some more of them though. Glad I’ve got through this project finished now normal service can resume (Read: Photos of coffee & other, more interesting, people).
