The existential photographer - reveal yourself

Challenge #1 in the Metaphotography series. Hosted by activa.
Challenge has finished
Without a meaning the photos are nothing but pixels. The photographer projects himself/herself in the picture to create a meaning. The viewers again create a meaning through their own lenses of prejudice, judgement and memory. In the end what we find that existence of a photo is always particular, unique and individual. So show us a photo that tells a story about you as a photographer - literally. You should be a part of the picture (or your shadow or any body part). Direct self-portraits are not encouraged but it is upto you to be creative and change a self-portrait to a story. Add a heading and a brief description about yourself.

This was a photo my nephew took of me, without my knowledge. I had one of my cameras in the truck with a Tair 3 300mm F4.5 Preset lens attached. He picked it up and snapped this shot. Pretty good for a 10 year old using a fully manual 300mm telephoto lens!
