John made an interesting point the other day, which is one we all know, but can easily forget in the mad rush to find something to post:

"I was wandering around Manchester the other day and was hell bent on finding interesting subjects to shoot.

I had completely forgotten that light should also be a primary concern and looking at how light falls on objects can often, or in fact usually leads to the discovery of a photo opportunity."

And of course he's right, so here's a self-portrait (it's been a while since I did a decent one) taken in front of the blind in one of our bedrooms.

Oh, and because of the fairly low-key feel to this one it looks much better when viewed with the black theme.
