The Selfie Project – September to November
There are limits to how big a web page can be before it becomes slow and cumbersome. We began our project in mid-July and two months means about 60 photos. That is enough for a page. So we have begun this page for pictures taken in the next two months.
I have gotten into the habit of wearing hats. Being bald, if it is cold I am cold, unless, I have a hat on. Not only that, if I hit my bald head on something it hurts. Hairs protects your head. Not mine! So I have come to like hats. Hats of all kinds. And my hats bring out different parts of my personality. Take a look.
7 September 2020 – As I said, my hats bring out different parts of my personality. This is my “Greek God” look!
14 September 2020 – The first racking of my Blackberry Wine. Working around the house in my work clothes I have several old peaked caps I have acquired from places I have forgotten. All very beat up but they shield my eyes and protect my head.
12 September 2020 – My Crofter’s Cap I got in Alaska when we went on a cruise with Kate and Colin. The wool sweater I love. I got this in Charlottetown last year on our trip down East to visit with Sam and Nico.
13 September 2020 – Nico gave me my Pixie Hat. It was made by an old highschool girlfriend but it was a little too radical for his taste. The young do need to conform!
15 September 2020 – Today you get six pictures of me and the bird. Christina gave us the bird and it lives on the lawn in our back yard.
17 September 2020 – I spend a lot of time here at my very messy desk. I think I have Attention Defficet Disorder because I have so many projects. The truth is, it drives me nuts to have so many things on the go at once.
19 September 2020 – I drove Susan to the dentist this morning. While she was in the chair I went and got a coffee and sat in the car listening to “Saturday at the Opera” on CBC.
21 September – Picking Basil for Pesto. This was the second harvest from the Basil plants. They really grow well here along the side of the house.
16 September – I worked about 15 years for Ansan before I retired. Miss it a little bit. I still have my hat and jacket.
27 September – The apples in the garden are ready and Susan asked me to peel some for a pie. Well, how could I say “No”?
25 September – walking in the park weo found freshly fallen chestnuts. They are so pretty. It is a shame that we can’t eat them or use them for something.
26 September – I photograph my cameras for my writing about them on my website. A simple setup with two strobes but it works.
22 September – Today I got out my Italian “Calcio” hat which I picked up years ago during Italian Days on Commercial Drive.
01 October 2020 – Caesar and Nico built a new deck for the little house in the garden and I decided to build a lattice to hide the stuff Susan stored under it. Firt I had to cut the lathe from 2×4’s.
03 October 2020 – Once the lathe was done assembly was easy. The bottom however was uneven which bothered me so I found some nice cedar boards to finish the bottom edge.
02 October 2020 – With all the work I do on my websites it is sometimes hard to remember that my hobby is photography! But I do get out to take pictures now and then. On this day I took my infra red camera for a walk along our usual walking trail and took this picture of myelf. This day I took some really interesting pictures.

18 October 2020 – On the left is today’s picture taken in my Scotish “Tam o’ Shanter”. I bought this hat in Edinburgh while cycling in the British Isles in 1958. A few days later, deep in the Scottish Highlands I took this picture of me with my new hat in the heather. The hat still looks great and I still look …. hmmmmm …. well, older.
