A vignette

Someone asked me why there are no photos of me on my blog/facebook/website. Well, here is one, a vignette taken last winter when I got my phone and was experimenting with  the buttons.
A vignette from last winter

Wikipedia tells me that vignette is a word that originally meant 'something that may be written on a vine-leaf" and that vignetting in photography is any process by which there is loss in clarity towards the corners and sides of an image. I looked it up because I wondered why my phone calls this sort of image a vignette when other software calls them instagram photos. I suppose instagram is type  vignette.
