Ich bin's

There's somebody in this picture you might recognise. Well you might recognise me if you happen to know what I look like in the first place. If that was the case, it would still be a bit of a struggle, given the size of the image. Still if you click on it to enlarge it, I'm the one on the right-hand pavement standing on my own and wearing black. Yes just there - about two-thirds to the right of the image, and more or less three-quarters of the way down from the top edge. Or, if it makes any more sense, I'm several metres to the right of the red bus.

Ok, perhaps I'll make it a little easier to spot me:

Yep there I am, the one waving my arms.

Still finding it difficult? Ok, I'll move to a different webcam. You can even get a sense that I'm using a mobile phone to send and receive text messages (along the lines of "try moving forwards and five paces to your right", for example).

For the avoidance of any doubt, I'll wave my arms about again.

Yep, that's me that is.

I would never have recognised you.

Well, self portraits are traditional.

I'm impressed you got these images, did you have to speak nicely to the officers of the law?

Oh, come on, B - you're just not trying :) Lovely to see you by the way x

Zhoen, exactly. Who needs someone taking a photo of you when you can send them a link to a webcam, synchronise watches (including a differential of an hour), and co-ordinate via text messages? It's easy! Though it was bloody cold, and after half an hour of such ativity I had to go and get some gluhwein mit rum..

FB, see the above link and remarks in the comment to Zhoen and hopefully it'll make some sense :)

Sophia said... made me smile these wee hours of the morning, sick and not feeling well. So...when do we get to see a REAL pic of you. :D

Always glad to make you smile, Sophia:)

In the 2 1/2 + years I've been blogging, I've never published a picture of me that would make me easily identifiable..
