Your real face looks better than your avatar ! One is friendly (sympathique) the other not so !

this is a very nice self portrait; I don't know why, but it makes me think to that of Andreas Feininger

I looked for it, but well it is quite different.. But still it's as if both portraits were from the same family.

Very clever that you saw that.

Feininger was on my mind when I made that self-portrait.

The key to the resemblance is round shapes.

Feininger substituted his own eyes with the two parts of the special-looking camera.

I used my glasses and my own left eye (not closed like I normally would when shooting, but kept open, like I do for street shooting), and the cameralens and my Swatch are the other round shapes, with the cuff link (accidentally) a small echo.

And thanks for calling me prettier than my avatar: that's a relief...
