I am the worlds worst at posing for a portrait. This shot was taken in the studio by my Daughter, she is a pretty good photographer in her own right. The only problem she had was me in front of her. She is a musician and liked the fact that I looked like a blues guitarist, a friend viewed it and thought it looked like a publicity shot for an author. The last comment suits me better as I do write, so the picture stays. But the reality is, I may take my photography in a serious way but I do smile at people when I am working, honest.
