Saint or Sinner

Mono Monday: Begins with S

A Self-Portrait begins with S.  As others have observed, photographing yourself is difficult.  How do you do it with any honesty?  Is the processing going to be sympathetic and produce an enhanced image or is it to be totally crushing and emphasise the  ravages of time?  Whichface do you want to present to the world?  Which reveals more of the character of the sitter?

In the end the choice is a bit like the Picture of Dorian Gray - are you the devil or angel, the saint or the sinner?
