The Messrs. Potato Head
"I can't decide which one of these I should choose for tomorrow's daily photo. The one of Jason is really cute and I like the way it shows his personality. But I also think the Potato Head one is good--it's kind of bizarre and cute at the same time, and it shows his personality, too."
"Can't you put more than one?"
"No. It's a daily photo not daily photos. That's the format."
"It's nice to see a series sometimes, though. That way you get to see different moments and they all add up."
"It's your web site. Do whatever you want."
"I guess I could add the self-portrait and make a triptych out of it."
"A triptych. That's when you put three pictures together in panels."
"Oh, yeah, that might be good."
"OK, let's see what I can do with this."

Jason's New Kitchen
Jason got a new toy from his Grandma for his birthday: a kitchen set. He loves it, and has been super excited to play with it ever since it magically appeared by the dining table one morning. This is him on that morning, putting two cups, a salt shaker, and two bowls into the oven. He's not doing that anymore, but for whatever reason, he thinks the phone goes in the microwave, and his wind-up dolphin toy ("MY NEW DOLPHIN!") goes in the fridge. He refuses to entertain any notions to the contrary.
The self-portraiture phase is kind of a big cliché for photographers, I know. I have to get it out of my system eventually, though, right?
I figured as long as I'm engaging in clichés, I might as well really dive in, hence the "here's half of my face" composition, the faux-Andrzej Dragan texture and tone, and the boring expression.
Maybe I'll remember to shave before the next one.
