Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.
July 6, 2010. It’s a Tuesday. My day off; he’s still jobless, so we have the day together. We usher in my 22nd year with lunch at Kermadec, a seafood restaurant on the waterfront (it’s not as swank as The Grove, but a lot swisher than the little ethnic places we usually frequent). The views are great – it’s airy and the lighting is fabulous. A spontaneous shot snapped by T turns out amazingly well. It’s me, with better skin and hair than usual. A little wry, a little self-conscious, a little awkward. No forced smiles or poses. It’s a moment of serenity, of getting away from everyday life, from stress and from worry, and back to the basics: the simple pleasure of dining.
You know what? I don’t think I ever knew what you looked like! My only image of you was your Mad Men-esque cartoon picture/avatar.
A simple lunch out, or a small birthday celebration is so much better than a wild, extravagant (expensive) event!
Nice pic! Looks like your gravatar 🙂 Tell me, do you have a sultry NZ accent as well?
Sultry? Perhaps, when I’ve just woken up and have a Bonnie Tyler rasp goin’ on
Hey, that’s a really cute photo! You look happy and satisfied.
FS–the accent here is adorable! I find it much easier on the ears than the aussie twang. Most importantly, the kiwi accent is nearly devoid of the aussie tendency to inflect upwards the ends of sentences (drives me NUTSO!).
Sounds good! Literally! Kiwies and Aussies gotta get a long!
That’s a great photo! Love it!
I love seeing these photos of you in your past few posts! I think of you more as an avatar so hopefully, I’ll start thinking of you with this photo in mind. I’m not sure if this comment makes any sense at all. Heh. 🙂
