2019 Photography Challenge: Week 1

  • Week 1
  • Story Telling: Self Portrait

This week I’m supposed to “Take a picture that tells us who you are, without actually showing your face” This photo shows a little of who I am. We’ve got technology, books, and scotch.

If you don’t know, Mike Helmers is big into beer. The Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian is an amazing book that I picked up several years ago. It teaches you everything you need to know about the wonderful world of fermentation. I grew up with my dad, Pat Helmers, brewing beer. I believed he learned to brew using the first edition of this book.

I’ve also got the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*** by Mark Manson. Personally I struggle with depression and this is a great book that helps me focus on what really matters. Very Zen.

You see a glass of Scotch because I really like whiskey. Scotch is especially delicious, although Rye Whiskey is my most favorite of all the whiskies.

And finally you see my various tech. These are all elements of my little home lab that I use to teach myself about IT and to have fun.

See you next week!
