Ok, so I got tagged today… and since I can’t compete with Martins brilliant underwater Self-Portrait, I thougt I go all black and try to make it a challenge in another way… getting a halfway decent smile done. I am so bad at smiling in pictures and it took me quite a while to get this done.

I think the Self-Portraits is the first part of being tagged. Done that… now I’m suppost to tell you some random things about me. I liked the idea of *karla to get one false answer in there, so I’m giving you eleven facts of which one isn’t true.

1. I’m studying German, but I hate reading Goethe
2. One of my biggest dreams is it to be on stage once and play a show
3. I can’t sing at all, but when I’m alone in my car, I sometimes sing along to the stereo so loud that the people in the cars around me will stare at me.
4. I love symmetry and don’t like it when things are not lined up.
5. I am a total geek when it comes to camera gear and I would prefer the lastest B&H catalog above a Playboy at any time.
6. I am scarred of the Movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial since I’ve been a child – I can’t watch it at all.
7. If got a bad aura when it comes to electrical devices. They tent to break within the first year of me owning them most of them way before that (even though I am really careful handling them), my camera is and always was the exception.
8. I love the ocean and could spend hours sitting on the beach just listening to the waves
9. I really have to force myself to be on time for meetings with friends, because I always tent to be a couple minutes late. I am never late for work or important appointments.
10. I just got one pair of shoes and if I can’t find those in the morning, I can’t get out of the house (which happened before).
11. I don’t care for my birthday. For me that is just a day like any other.
