From back in September; my first attempt at making a self portrait ambrotype! I built a head brace from a monopod and guitar bracket. This one was taken in daylight in the shade - 4 seconds at f/5.6 - underexposed but looks pretty cool!

Loving "Uptight Downtown" by La Roux right now. Heavily influenced by many artists and songs... but in a great way!

"Let's Dance" by David Bowie, Banarama, "Girls just wanna have fun" by Cyndi Lauper just a little bit...

Who else!?
