A few weekends ago I finally got around to having a new author photo taken. Looking through the rejects, I can’t help but marvel at the silly expressions on my face. And not always deliberately, either. So I’ve uploaded the best of them, and what it looks like I was (but probably wasn’t) thinking at the time:
Heh. Author photo. Piece of cake.
You want me to turn which way?
Oh. I see. Is that physically possible?
No, I won’t cross my eyes and act like a monkey!
Why yes, I would like you to Photoshop out my wrinkles.
Aww. Puddy tat wants to be part of photo. No, you can’t be part of photo, putty tat.
Hmph. Always somebody tries to steal the limelight.
Mmm. It’s nice and warm under these lights. I could really do with a nap…
No. I’m awake, really. Honest!
We’re done? Great! I could kill for a cup of tea.
