A friend of mine informed me that I needed to take a self-portrait, which I have no desire to do. So, he suggested that I do something more abstract that I could perhaps pass off as a self-portrait. After some thought, I came to the conclusion that I would focus on photographing a physical representation of my aura. Something bright and cheery, maybe a little obnoxious, and airy (because I tend to flit from one thing to another). The answer lay in feathers.
