I’m supposed to hand in an author photo tomorrow. This used to be a lot easier when I was, oh, I don’t know, decades younger. Also, at 56, I don’t have as much patience as I used to. I planned to spend all day on this if necessary, but after an hour I’m done. Please tell me this picture is acceptable. I’m happy with it. I think I look friendly and reasonably animated and happy.
Update: Okay, a few people weighed in and this is the newest version.
Another Update: I just replaced my old picture on the upper right with this new one. I like how it looks!
Here is the same shot, cropped in.
