    I just got back some pictures from before the end of spring semester and in every single one of them I look like an idiot. In half of them my eyes are closed or squinty and I have this goofy ass grin in all of them. This seems to be a reoccurring theme in pictures with me.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    Me too .. For the life of me I can't smile on command. I can at something genuine or humorous but not for the camera .. or even women; unless I'm saying hi.

    For starters .. loose the ratty ball cap .. :rolleyes:

    Next wear darker colours .. so your fair complexion doesn't get washed out.


    I'm half Swedish .. it's no wonder I wear navy and black almost exclusively ..

    I stay out of photos, too. I don't know if I'm not photogenic, I just don't like my picture taken.

    On the other hand, my mom has a real problem with the photogenic thing. It's hysterical, and we all pick on her about it. It never fails - and you can put the camera on a rapid fire shutter setting and take 4 consecutive photos of her, and in every single one of them, one eye will be half-closed, she'll be making a weird face, and it never, ever fails, but there will be a beer of glass of wine near her, too. She hardly ever drinks, but when she does, a camera is around and it's the only time someone takes her photo, so all of the photos of my mom make portray a total drunk...God bless her, she just has terrible luck that way.

    ... this isn't GQ and that's my lucky hat. :flipoff2:

    This thread is support for those of us that appear to be 'tards in pictures. Not to point out my poor (preppy-country) fashion taste.

    It's not the hat, it's the women. In Alabama they'll screw farm animals or you - whichever's closest.

    the one on right reminds me of most of the pictures taken of my GF.
    if you ever mention it too her, i will deny having ever been a member here.

    I don't let my picture get taken.

    I look like Maynard G. Krebs from the Dobie Gillis show.

    Like him, I also tend to whig out whenever someone mentions the word "Work."

    Come on Critter, I've seen that girl around town, you blurred her face because she has a mustache that would make Magnum PI jealous

    Haha damn you caught me, but you really shouldn't talk about your Mom that way! :flipoff2:

    Are you going up to David's shop Friday by any chance (meeting for a run)?

    I think we are going to the Pour House or the Duck tonight if you get bored. If there is a red F350 in the parking lot I'm there if you wanna hang out.
