january 7: for jude mc

When I first saw this jumper it was love at first sight. I don't know if it was requited but since when is that an impediment to pursuit? All I know is I was heard to utter "Oh yes, it SHALL be mine. It SHALL - be mine." Everyone needs a jumper they can wrap up in and feel good, don't you agree?

For unwittingly encouraging me to have a bash at the odd SP and for being an inspiration, generally,
big thanks to jude mc

well, i'd like to say that i agree with the comments made previously, but i'm not quite sure i've followed the convo all that well (am i the only one?!). but anyway. yes. a brilliant self-portrait. enigmatic eyes that really draw you in.

Very nice SP. You do look like a male model. Just ditch the jumper tho;...Heathcliff did not make it big-time wearing baggy jumpers.... .. ;))

Ahh the rare Irish eagle brooding pensively yet with cozy authority from his lofty nest.The sooty brows and deathly empty eyes focus a formidable command from the hushed softness.That vote button is on auto repeat.

jude, Carmen? As a red-blooded man, for once, I'm glad to be out of my depth here...

Tut, tut. I know this one... There'll be SUN... umm,

When I'm stuck with a day, that's gra (e?) y...

bet your bottom dollar that tomorrowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

SHHHH! everyone... Niall's communing with his jumper again. It's telling him to take ODD self portraits, which to me is a little strange but what do I know? I'm just trying to decipher what dictionary meaning to assign to what word. Still not sure about the 'jumper' bit, actually. I thought it was someone who walked out onto a bridge to ponder the meaning of life and came to the wrong conclusion.
What's that NOISE? Is someone singing ?

Have I ever confessed here on Pbase that I LOVE dark eyes? Well I do! And this picture is fantastic! Even though the sweater, OOPS, I mean "jumper" is in the foreground, those eyes just MAKE the picture! Excellent job in My humble, non-photographer opinion.

I'm singing and tapping my foot impatiently.. wondering when it will be about ME again.. hence the "to jude mc" feel of the whole photo thingie.. :B
Niall O'Shea08-Jan-2005 22:49
Who's doing what now??? :B
jude08-Jan-2005 20:58
Wait.. I thought this was about me?
Carmen08-Jan-2005 20:15
Niall, forgive me, but speaking of buttinskis, I believe I was addressing Jude...not you? I mean, you're acting like this is your gallery or something(!). But as you feel the need to resort to semantics to explain your "odd" comment, I just thought I would heave out the old dictionary. Ahem. bzzz-bz-bzzz (I'm not a bee; I'm just reading) bzz-bzzz-bz... Here it is -- second degree of the third definition...all right. I suppose a scholar of the obscure would find that a perfectly acceptable explanation.
In which case I guess I should take back my comment about your SP not being odd (as you take very occasional SP's) and say that it is indeed a VERY odd SP. Still nice, but odd.
Niall O'Shea08-Jan-2005 14:29
OMG Carmen you are SUCH a Buttinski. Like WTF is that? Yeah, I know...No, for the sake of semantic clarity, I meant 'odd' in the sense of 'occasional', in so far as I take the occasional SP, taking inspiration from jude's which, are, shall we say, 'less' occasional? (and not 'odd' in the sense of 'strange'). Sheesh! ;-D
Carmen08-Jan-2005 04:12
Oh, yeah. Carol Kane. That scene's a hoot. (Liar-Liarr-Lii-aaa-rrrrrrr!)
Jude, not to be a buttinski, but did Niall just said you take an odd SP?!?
(BTW very nice SP, Niall. Not at all odd.)

LIAH! LIAH! (did you ever see The Princess Bride?)..

Yes, I invented the system myself. Learnt it while on military manouevres during the Burma campaign. Beastly business, don't you know...(twirling moustachios)

Excellent link, Mr O'Shea...

Nice shot, and nice conversion Niall

A great B&W portrait Niall, no saturation here, just dark on the face and two impressive eyes
Really creative feeling,
Stu07-Jan-2005 00:45
I used to have one just like it... all big, baggy and soft. Very moody shot, Niall, I like the b&w

Everyone needs to feel cuddled and cosy!
jude06-Jan-2005 21:36
ohhh I love this! I really like how the sweater is detailed and focused.. and your face is dark and mysterious.. Wrapped up nice and warm.. I can see why you loved it. Yay!
Such an excellent SP .. and not even on a friday..
Over here jumpers are sleeveless dresses that are worn over blouses or turtlenecks - but I won't tease you too much ..
