Well, what can I say? I normally don’t put photos of myself here much. Sparing you. But this photo shoot was fun. Perks of the job for all concerned. We took tens of photos, and this is the least of them. I’ll try and get you one of the more professional shots to giggle at.
What was the photo shoot about? Never mind, I’ll tell you later. All I know was that at some point (about 5 seconds into the shoot) the whole thing degenerated into a sort of comedy act (with me the straight man), and there were all kinds of poses cooked up by my creative team-mates, KC and Tara, encouraged by the photographer.
So you get to make up your own stories about what this is for:
A new local TV news show?
(My favourite:) A new crimefighting TV show? (“Law and Order – USC”, or maybe an annoyingly stupid misspelling like: “Alg3br4”)
A new blog team?
A new fashion show for academics? (“Gravitational Dressing”…..)
(My other favourite:) A new science news TV show? (“Serious Science, for Serious People”; Tagline: “We read the science news so you don’t have to!”)
I could go on, but I have errands to run…. and I’m pretty sure you can do better.
