+I took a lot of self portraits in junior high + high school
+My first camera was an Olympus that my grandfather on my mom’s side gave me
+He was so intellectual, always reading, teaching me history I didn’t care about
+But he encouraged my creativity
+And understood how creativity and intelligence were linked
+"The greatest scientists are artists as well" -Albert Einstein
+…it was four megapixels
+And I took hundreds of teenage selfies in my room with it
+That was before selfies were a thing
+I’ve taken selfies on many different cameras since then
+But a video selfie… never done that.
+So here it is, January 2019, shot on my red raven.
+Thanks Boppa, for being the first to hand me a camera.
