Flickr a Week 13a: ‘Selfie’

Self-titled “Selfie” easily takes the Sunday spot for character, clarity, composition, and expression (of the subject and his artistic presentation). Chris Bird used Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujinon XF35mmF2 R WR lens to capture himself, on June 22, 2016. Vitals: f/13, ISO 200, 1/180 sec, 35mm.

In February 2014, Chris joined Flickr, where he posts a vibrantly, intoxicating Photostream. His website is as dynamic.

He explains about his “passion for photography”:

At the age of 36 I kind of had a midlife crisis and have never looked back. I decided to travel by myself to Vietnam for a few months after coming out of a long-term relationship. I had actually been inspired to do the journey having watched the ‘Top Gear’ special episode in which team traveled from North to South of Vietnam and motorbikes. I have never been the same since. After this two-month adventure, I decided I would rent out my house in the UK and continue my journey.

Ah, that explains why he lists his current city as “worldwide”.
