Shot Myself Today !

This isn't what I usually do...




                                                                   ...but it was freezing cold outside...
so, I was trapped indoors.  And felt like a wild animal must feel stuck in a cage.  So, I took my cameras to my office and practiced shooting myself.

Really, I'm not into doing studio shots or any kind of indoor photography but, unfortunately, I have to.  It's part of this school I'm involved in and if I don't finish all my homework and graduate this year there's no telling what they might do to me.

Can they still drag you up in front of the whole class and whack your fanny with the BOARD OF EDUCATION ?

That probably got outlawed in the last Century, but, I'm not sure because I haven't been back to the USA in awhile.  I hear they have lots of lawyers making people behave and if anyone hurts you they promise to get you millions of dollars as long as you'll split it with them 50/50.

Somebody told me a fat lady spilled her coffee in her lap at a Drive-thru joint and got Six Million Dollars.  Is that true ?

Well, anyway, I'm a Grandpa and I don't think I should have to do homework unless it's something that interests me.  Portraits, advertising, and fashion; they're all things I have to shoot to graduate from the professional camera school.  I'll do what I have to do and get it done.  And when I do, I'll go get my....

Millions the hard way, I'll work for them !

LOL Mike, with a little bit of pruning you could go for the 'Ernest Hemingway Lookalike Contest' ... and may be even win !!!

Sumitran,
Well, this whole idea was unplanned so, it came out looking more like a convict's mug shot. When I clicked on the photo and saw it full-size, I ran home, cut the beard, trimmed the nose hairs, shampooed and showered. Now the dogs don't recognize me !

Cheers,
Mike

Mike - that is an interesting photo! I hope your dogs will soon recognize you once again.

And it wasn't a fat lady - it was an elderly lady. And it was at least $6,000,000.

Sabina,
Well, we don't always get all the news that's fit to print over here so, I have to listen to uncontrolled rumors, sometimes.
What's an elderly lady doin' driving around spillin' hot coffee on herself for, anyhow?

Whatever she got, I bet the lawyer was smiling when he deposited his share.

We have to get you a Bio Portrait; for some reason it didn't show up here today.
You'll have to come over here and visit my, hmm, studio someday.

Cheers,
Mike

That beard looks so .....fluffy!

Mike said...

Gnarly, I think is more like it. I did a bit of a hatchet job on it with scissors yesterday. Once I get it trimmed down, a little bit each day, to where the electric clippers quit stalling, I'll break out the razor blades. Then, maybe, if I look presentable, I'll post a more dignified-looking character. One of my other dogs?

Cheers,
Mike

Little fuzzy there Mike,I hate homework and being stuck inside too. I work for my money and feel good compared to hot coffee in the lap,

Gene,
Thanks for droppin' in and commenting. Sometimes, I'm too lazy to type a new post and drag up an old one. That's what happened today. Try and have something new for you shortly.

Cheers,
Mike
