Well since I am the instigator of this forum (Thanks, Chris), it’s only right that I should post my Covid self-portrait. I was trying to look as miserable as possible. Hadn’t shaved the whole time in isolation (this was about the middle of the 10 days advised by the CDC). But no worry, the reason I look so worn and disheveled is that I purposely shot it immediately after working out, to make sure I was clammy with sweat and my hair was a mess. So obviously I felt pretty good. Fortunately had a mild case. Yea vaccines and Paxlovid. You can compare this shot to my avatar.

Very serious…interesting, the way the thumbnail shows is a tight crop that’s also powerful…Re: Covid self-portraitReply #2 on: May 3, 2022 at 4:55 pm

I think you look more pensive than miserable, but it’s a fine shot, nicely processed.

I know that look. I had just two weeks ago. Seems to linger for a while. Well done shot.

Thanks, Kevin. I have it the second time now. No worse than a cold, so I’m glad I have had all my vaccines, but getting tired of this crap.
