me at photo booth

I really like taking periodic photos of myself in photo booths. I like that no one takes the photo. It seems more objective. The first year I came to japan I did a project where wrote myself a postcard every week and took a photobooth photo and taped it onto the postcard. I thought it would be interesting to watch myself age over about 10 years. But I got sick of photos of me. So I stopped the project. But I still think the ones I have are pretty interesting. Weird. Its a strange kind of journal to keep because your future self is always getting mail from your past self - and the photos a week are weird because I dont look very different from photo to photo in one way, but in another way I really do. well. I think the postmen here thought I was nuts.
I really have to go to sleep now.
