That’s what happened for the desktop summit headshot that I have been using for this blog. The picture is almost intolerably cheesy, but out of laziness I have left it up.
To come clean about it, it’s actually a really bad photo that Jeff Allen retouched and somehow made look good. This is the original, which shows the truth: I was in an autorickshaw in Bangalore, India. I was uncomfortable and scared out of my wits. Sadly, from that disposition, I can actually look decent. (Said my wife when she saw the retouch: “Who is this beautiful man?” Said she on seeing the original: “Oh, that’s more like it….But, Jeff is really good with PhotoShop, huh?”)
