The Council Of Infinite Kendalls

A reminder: the theme on the first day of April for City Daily Photo bloggers happens to be My Camera Shy Self Portrait. 

I was down at the Ottawa Convention Centre not so long ago, and that fabulous wall of glass triangles makes for some good photo opportunities. The photographer looks rather small amid the reflections. And more than one reflection of said photographer might be found.

I expect only comic book readers might be able to make sense of that title.


  1. William, an amazing effect!
    Self-portrait is really surprising.

  2. I still don't know what I'm going to do about the April theme!

  3. Your last sentence is true at most. I notice that you have a sense of humor.


  4. I always like the reflections you sometimes see around.

  5. Such a beautiful reflection! And great camera shy self portrait :-)

  6. Hey, speaking of glass. How's the Hamburglar doing these days?

  7. I thought the title was an episode of Dr Who!

  8. That does look like a great spot to get reflection shots.

  9. An amazing place for a spectacular self-portrait!

  10. @Mariusz: thanks!

    @Halcyon: think creatively. If you've got something like a favourite coat, for instance, photograph the coat.

    @Tomas: oh, I do.

    @Marianne: every once in awhile I find myself in one.

    @Luis: thanks!

    @Tamago: I'm certainly not the emphasis here.

    @Birdman: he's tied with one league record, and closing in on a franchise record of a goalie going undefeated in regulation time. Mind you, they're facing the Rangers tonight. We'll see what happens.

    @Jane and Chris: the only times I've seen bits and pieces of Dr. Who, I'm convinced one would need drugs to understand it. I'll have the answer tomorrow.

    @Sharon: it certainly is.

    @VP: it's a good spot for that.

  11. It takes a good eye to catch an image like this. Most people would just walk by.

  12. As I don't read comic books, I didn't understand the title, but comic books remind me it's Big Bang Theory tonight, now I do love that!!

  13. Um, yes. Since I'm not a comic book reader, I have no idea what it's about.

  14. Haha! Can't wait to see how everyone interprets the April theme, been a few teasers around :) you look pretty rugged up here William, tres cold ?

  15. Given the way you're dressed, it must still be cold up there....

  16. Oooh excellent! A wee bit early, I wonder what you have got planned for 1 April because this one really is fab!

  17. Good one! I bet we all have a stash of selfies taken for this theme.

  18. Interesting what they did there. (Waiving back at you) (:

  19. i always hear that folks are really into taking photo of themselves that are perfect. you know the perfect hairdo, clothing, the best part of their day, etc. ... but for me ... i take a picture when i want to ... not when i think people will think i am at my best just when i want to be silly or nuts!! the age of selfies ... where did it all come from so quickly? i wonder??! ( :

  20. Great! What a wonderful location to play with your camera for a while.

  21. @Red: I like photographing at that place.

    @Gill: I have never seen that series.

    @Cheryl: the answer shall be forthcoming.

    @Revrunner: we had days recently where it started out at -15C.

    @Grace: it was cold. I've got one shot... still trying to figure out another. I need some sunlight!

    @Tex: thanks!

    @Norma: today is a bit better.

    @Geoff: I thought of going with the mirror universe notion and asking which Kendall is the evil one, but we all have beards.

    @Ciel: the first one I have might be a bit uncomfortable!

    @RedPat: no doubt!

    @Lorelei: thanks!

    @Beth: I try to avoid getting myself in a shot, but it does happen.

    @Jan: I have more from here tomorrow and the next day.

  22. I vote for more of You! Nice composition indeed. and Light too

    ALOHA from Honolulu

  23. Bundled up and very nicely composed. Great "venue."

  24. This is an interesting shot William! You certainly are bundled up there.

  25. It's cold. I don't think in cold. I am a zombie.

  26. Love the new banner. Love it.

    Hey, we had snow today. Not much, just a few flakes.

  27. @Marleen: thanks!

    @Cloudia: thank you!

    @Kay: it was a cold day.

    @Lois: as I often am from November through April!

    @Mari: well, at least my header now is spring like.

    @Whisk: it was time to change it. I'd thought of it yesterday.

    1. Very nice. And the first photo also nice. We had snow all day today, but not much came of it.

  28. fun Googling your title ... interesting photo

  29. You look bundled up for cool weather still! I'm thinking CDP posts on April 1st will be a ton of fun!

  30. Oh I like the title of your post !!! and I like your new photo at the top of your blog.

  31. You seem imprisoned in the delight and wonder of art. A nice kind of imprisonment.

  32. @Whisk: thanks!

    @Denton: thank you.

    @Randy: thanks!

    @Linda: I agree.

    @Linda: I thought so!
