Rei Aijylle Abenoja Estemera is a high school student who just started a blog focused on photography. I know that because she liked my last post so I checked out her site. Her self-portrait with a camera startled me and threw me back more than 40 years.
That photo on her site is here: https://reisblog.photo.blog/2019/09/09/capturing-every-moments/
Here is her photo, cropped a bit:

And here is a self-portrait I took back when I was about her age. With about as much hair as her. I’m holding my Dad’s original half-frame Olympus Pen F (internal link).
Did you take a self-portrait when you first got interested in photography? You can e-mail me that image and I will post it.
