I was younger then. Trying to figure how to construct a tripod to compensate for my shaking hands.

I was asking about the authorship of the photograph, not the person in it.

Kind of "selfie"

Anybody with a minimal knowledge of Fine Arts would identify my style.
Anyway I own the negatives.

Slobodan, do you have a reason to be suspicious?

To good to be true.
Slobodan needs a signature in Ray-Ban or Coca-Cola style crisscrossing the Works of Art  ;)

In some cases, that's what rich people think they are buying. Picasso was no fool! Actually, he was Spanish.

Teasing aside, it is a good shot. Captures nicely the resignation that comes with old age. I should know.

Theoretically, yes; realistically, no, you don't know. You ain't got there yet.

Ask Russ: year numbers have very little to do with it; it comes from other people who do their best to convince you that you should hand back your spurs. Tell 'em to go screw themselves. On the other hand, I have actually known folks who were born old.

Exactly, Rob. I believe Hunter Thompson had a point when he talked about the way to go out ". . .to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a ride!”

Glad to hear that.
And yes, they are very strong people.
One of them pulled once my car out of the bed of the river, with little help of the poor motor (at 3'000 masl) and my humble push
