The intense look of observation from one age to the next... And that can be humbling and for some scary

Re: That ole scary self portrait!

I think your right about being scary. No longer the young man looking back at you. Just an old dude that you dont recognize(or rather cant accept). I see this as a very brave and honest piece of work. Not many people can be so self effacing with brutal honesty. Rembrandt did it too!

Many more selfies to come Larry im sure
