Self-Portraits

Myself at night. Probably not the best picture in the world but rather revealing. By the way, the cat isn't mine. 

(Mind you, we've had lots of cats. Never quite as black as this one, though. Our first cat was white all over with a black spot on her forehead, so we called her Cain. When we got a puppy (black with a white spot - on his chest), we called him Abel, perhaps an unfortunate choice of name: Abel died a few months later. Poisoning was suspected.)

Having underexposed my self-portrait at the first attempt, I used a flash this time. Using a mirror may have been a mistake.
