I was trying to get a self-portrait that didn't really look like it was posed for. Not an easy task.
And then I wondered if I could show some emotion for the shot, like someone took it during a "moment of weakness" when I appeared to be lost in my thoughts -- sad thoughts. I ended up taking 22 shots, and this was one of the last ones.
I converted it to B&W, darkened the tone a little and blurred the background a little more.
