Not sure if that is the building or ME, old & neglected. Doesn’t really matter.

I like taking my self-portrait, it is a great way for me to try ideas & see if they will work, sometimes they achieve my vision, other times they hit the bottom of the trash bin.
I like this image, the darkness behind me, is it a past best forgotten? The old building is like me, still standing but not in good shape anymore. I was never supposed to last this long, no fear for anything is a recipe for an early grave, but every time I got knocked down I just got back up.
