“Picturing the Body” assignment, Weeks 6 & 7: The Aging Body

No stomach for it; but in the end I can laugh at myself. Feel free to join in.
The body ages, I shit you not. Aging is practice for how you want to go out.

Prepare yourself. There’s still a lot of ground to cover and another week to make the trip. John Coplans I ain't, but with any luck I’ll be able to make a couple photos that tell some pretty slick lies.
Now I can go shower and shave.

Far be it from me to crack wise. I have 9 or 10 years on you. We went to the dog park today to visit Charlie and his owner. Cold, so I donned thermal underwear. DW actually laughed when she saw me in them. Rightly so, even though I am down 30 lbs.
These photos are beauties, such crisp detail and focus on most of them.

I'm guessing you captured what you wanted with these.

C - Good for you on the 30 lbs. I could stand to drop that much, if only to have more wrinkles to photograph.

As I look at these photos again, and the others I took last night, I realize that going forward I should be careful to stick to the subject matter of aging, not just shots of my body parts, for not every physical aspect suggests the aging process. Deterioration, perhaps, but not aging. Unless, they are one in the same, and in my case,they might be.

I'll have to think about this some more as it is never enough just to snap away.
