Poseidon by bobfoto

Poseidon

Inspired by a comment made by a co-worker and the great work that Dennis Hopper does; I swallowed my pride and my Stripey Snapper and posed for another Pagan Portrait.
Freakishly awesome is how I would describe this!!!!

Really cool portrait! You should continue doing these, they're really original.
August 29th, 2011  
@nattybabe - thanks Nattybabe! Nothing fishy about that comment!

@axel - Thank you Axel, but sadly like Samson, I get my selfie strength from my hair and soon (with this rising humidity) it will be time to shave once again. Winter is over my friends. The beard's days are numbered!
August 29th, 2011

Interesting result! Love the sparkles.
August 29th, 2011  
He he he!!! Okay so this is very much a fabulous shot right here!! Love the lighting and just one highlighted, am intrigued by the fish and honestly very surprised with the sparkly touches. All in all my friend, the judges are holding up a high score card :D
August 29th, 2011  
Just the one 'eye' that is.....
August 29th, 2011  
something looks a little fishy to me,nice one
August 29th, 2011  
Bizarre, but I like the way you've matched the green of your eyes with the fish and your tshirt, really cool touch.
August 29th, 2011  
That is terrific, you captured Poseidon well, super selfie!
August 29th, 2011  
Despite a bit of ick factor, this is most excellent! Your talent is limitless.
August 29th, 2011  
What can I say? FAV for sure!!
August 29th, 2011  
Awesome editing! This looks sooo cool, Jason!!! :0)

August 29th, 2011  
@canberrabec - thank you Bec, don't know if I can spend a lot of time revisiting this shot... can still kinda taste that fish.

@steeler - tastes a little fishy too Howard!

@veekay - the green(ish) t-shirt was an accident, but one that I will take.

@httpgeffed - It was him or King Neptune tonight!

@lisjam1 - yeah, there was ick factor by the bucketload!

@buttercup - thanks Mary, thank you. :)

@cjwhite - yeah bit of post processing involved.

@lorihiro - the rest of the fish was deep-fried whole and served on a sizzling plate with a Vietnamese Green Papaya Salad, dressed with fish sauce, red chili, lime and sugar. Very tasty.

@scatcat @emeraldboots @lmasinton - thank you Muse, thank you Jill and thanks Lael!
August 29th, 2011

@orangecrush @emmar84 - Thank you Jerry and Emma :)
August 29th, 2011  
What a fantastic and amusing shot! Was the fish raw, with its head etc still one? You are one wonderful person if it was.
August 29th, 2011  
wonderful.
August 29th, 2011  
LOL this is awsome, how is the fishy, did he survive??
August 29th, 2011  
Favd... totally love love love this
August 29th, 2011  
Very creative - love the green hues matching :)
August 29th, 2011  
Pretty sure I wouldn't pop a fish in my mouth a yummy cooked prawn on the other would be a different story. I do hope that was a fresh fishy. But I do love your end result.
August 30th, 2011  
Hilarious! You should have used this so the scales wouldn't get caught between your teeth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BQFv83QJ2Y
August 30th, 2011  
CK
Wow - thats pretty cool/scary. So was the fish dead/alive before the shoot? And after??

Fan-Freakin'-Tastic! Fav!
August 30th, 2011  
@marper - It happens from time to time... You know sometimes, you can work out how people get there @"logon name" and I can see how you derived yours. Nice one Marper.

@houdiniem - Oh yeah!

@luxvivens - Thank you Lux although behind that fish tail is a smile :)

@aj1268 - thank you thank you thank you Paula!!!
August 31st, 2011  
I missed this!! It's a fantastic self portrait!! the lighting and composition is so very appropriate for the shot and does indeed make it look mystical. yuck on the fish in the mouth though.....hehe!
September 2nd, 2011  
@paulaag - it was hard to swallow!
September 2nd, 2011  
Should do another for this weeks theme!
September 6th, 2011  
@emeraldboots - Jill what theme is that? The surreal one?
September 11th, 2011  
Yes, you still have time! @bobfoto
September 11th, 2011  
@emeraldboots - sorry no fish in the pond.
September 12th, 2011

September 12th, 2011  
@grecican - still remember the taste.... *JD shudders*
September 12th, 2011  
Seriously!! You rock at selfies. This is insanely awesome! It took me too long to work out that it was a fish though lol. Love the tag.
Freakin awesome :-D
October 13th, 2011  
@amz87 - Ohhhhh the flavour returns.... this is the hardest of my 365 shots to revisit..... *burp*
October 13th, 2011  
@bobfoto Haha but it's so good!
October 14th, 2011  
@amz87 - oh you brought me back here again.... oh dear.... *burp*
October 15th, 2011  
Glorious. Are there more in the series?
September 22nd, 2013  
@squamloon - nah. I'm thinking about a Noah shot. Or Moses.
September 22nd, 2013  
@amandal - here it is, and it still leaves a taste in my mouth...
November 10th, 2013  
Nuh uh. You edited this in!! Sick. My hs biology teacher put this huge insect in his mouth. He was so cool. Was this alive?
November 10th, 2013  
@amandal - this was dead. Purchase from a monger. I chopped the tail off and stuck the spine in between my teeth.
November 10th, 2013  
@bobfoto Nice sparkle...I like how the fishy matches your eyes. Did the spine taste better than the body would have? Cool.
November 10th, 2013  
@amandal - the whole thing just tasted like fish.
November 10th, 2013  
You win. Fish in mouth beats soap hands down. Hey, I'm glad that we became friends this year. You make 365 very fun. Wish it hadn't taken so long. Last year I was intimidated by you.
November 10th, 2013  
@amandal - how is that possible?
November 11th, 2013  
@bobfoto The beard? That we became friends or the intimidation? Your skillz perhaps. I felt like a poser with a p&s last year.
November 11th, 2013  
@amandal - the tables have well and truly turned... because a lot of my shots are now with a pns and yours have a gazebo....
November 11th, 2013  
Maybe you could pick up an inflatable gazebo from the catalog. One is on sale for $19.99. Are you intimidated by me then?;-)
November 11th, 2013  
@amandal - just your gazebos.
