Photos of readers

I’ve started up the “Photos of readers” section, and invite you to join. It should be interesting during the pandemic as people show the ways they cope with the lockdown.

For example, reader Mark Jones submitted this one with a caption:

I submit this portrait of me in lockdown, which I call Self-isolation Blues. I think it’s self-explanatory!

So send a photo or two (no more, please) of yourself during lockdown, along with a few words of explanation. This will be the Pandemic Edition the series.

      Clippers! The advantage of being bald as a coot.

    Great composition. Nice digs … if you must be locked down, this looks like a room to take some of the sting out of it.

    There was a Bradley Cooper movie with a scene like that. he didn’t hype that one up as much as A Star Is Born though. Man he really went all out with the A Star Is Born hype. Haven’t heard so much baloney since I visited the Oscar Mayer baloney factory.

    I imagine this picture easily transcends any language on earth right now.

    You’re not sitting two metres apart from yourself!

    Hahahha! I’ve noticed this same behavior in myself lately. The whole family actually.

    Great composition by the way.

    It’s only missing one final photo of you doing a handstand. Just kidding…when I first saw it, it had a circus appeal. Late to the thread, it was greyed out as if I’d read it and after clicking, realized I hadn’t.
    Nice editing.
