Well this is me. I have only a couple of blog posts left to post on Bird in the Bush and I thought one of them should be some sort of big reveal about who I am, or rather what I look like. Here I am featured on the Someone Once Told Me website today and it features a big fat picture of me, and I'm not hiding behind a tree or a bike or positioning myself slightly off the camera lens. This is what I look like. On a average day. In black and white.
Someone Once Told Me describes itself as a "photography website" but I don't think that gives it enough credit. It's actually more of a fascinating social experiment led by Mario (a one time Shepherd's Bush resident). Everyday the site features a photograph of somebody from any given corner of the world with some words that somebody once told them and they explain the story why this means something to them. Some are funny, some are sad, some are thought provoking and some are just downright bizarre. I had my photo taken on Shepherd's Bush Green, much to the amusement of the regulars, and you can read and even listen (cringe!) to me explain what somebody once told me and why it was so important to me here.
SOTM also recently launched an iPhone app allowing you to keep up to date with the daily SOTM stories as well as submit your own and all proceeds from the purchase of the app go to support the charity Operation Smile. Before I left the Bush I was lucky enough to grab some Thai food at Jasmine with Mario and he is incredibly passionate about this app, its support of Smile and the SOTM project so if you like what you see please do consider downloading the app. (I can promise you that there will be no more photos of me and my chubby cheeks or soundbites of my deep voice again so you needn't worry about that.)
