Is “Haven’t showered in a week” a style?

National Blog Posting Month – May 2015 – Theme: Photo

Prompt: What is your favourite angle for being photographed? Head-on? Slightly above, below, to the side?
Photo: Your Style

DSC_1162

I like photos of myself taken from slightly above. I suppose it’s because I’m self-conscious about my chin and neck. I’ve never been fond of the shape of my chin, and it tends to slope back rather steeply into my collar bones, sidestepping the concept of a jawline distinct from a proper neck.

I hate it.

So when a camera is aimed at me, I usually make a face. I stick my chin out. I grin. There aren’t many candid shots of me that I really like.

The one above is a rare exception. That’s me in my preferred style: Paleontology-chic.
