Another doper photo thread.

OK, I didn't want to do this, but several factors have forced my hand.

I wanted somoene to supply me with a link to the most recent doper photo thread. Nobody did.

I didn't want to search because I knew that the innate creativity of dopers meant that the most recent (or indeed any) of such threads might not necesarily contain the words 'doper', 'photo' and 'thread' in its title (therefore searching for it wouldn't be very productive)

Anyway, here is your friendly neighbourhood Lobsang. Identity revealed at last! (Erm, for the second time, actually)

Me

I am still highly personally critical of that image, but at least I consider it just about normal enough to reveal it on a global stage.

My wife took this one of me teaching The Littlest Briston how to water the garden the other day.


And I swear...I've been wearing shorts every day this summer, and I still have the whitest legs since talcum was invented.

Oh dear. I now have a mental image of you sitting on the toilet, per ''cute kids'' thread...

This is my friend and I at a bar recently. I am the female. It was 80s dance night, but we obviously did not dress the part. We did kick it to some Devo and whatnot, though.

Here are all of my flickr photos that I've tagged me. There aren't too many and very few of them actually show my face.

Note to self: Spend a little more time in front of the camera instead of behind it.

Damn. For the first time ever, I have the chance to make it onto the first page of a picture thread, and I'm at work, where I don't have any pictures of myself.

Some action shots, sort-of. Those are from a few weeks ago when we were making a short movie in 48 hours. The same group participated in another round of the challenge last weekend, also with me manning the boom mic, but I don't have those pics yet.

Here is me at Stonehenge earlier this year. Then, there's me about a year and a half ago. And a photoshoppy one from last December. You wouldn't know it, but when I took that picture, I was on the couch watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

And finally, this is a picture from my last day with my beloved, late Rachel.

Yay, I made the front page. This is cooler than finding my name in the phone book.

Anyway, This is me, This is me and my lovely wife, This is our wedding rings and These are our children.

Just kidding, we have way too many kids to post here. If we ever get a picture with all seven children, the four fish, the cat & four kittens, the bird, the frog and the dog in it I will post it.

Here I am phoning in my voiceover part for a friend's music project. (Sort of a Central Scrutinizer-type character--the bathtub location was chosen for added echo-y ambiance) Notice the heavy saturation and enlarged gut area.

My camera phone works better sideways.
Or maybe I just look better sideways.

But for comparison sake, here's an upright with my best friend on vacation (I'm in the DBacks hat)


And finally, my eyemakeup turned out pretty good last week and I was snapping a picture in the car to send to a friend of mine. The overexposed result is kinda neat.

There are a couple more in the same album but they are all old now. I was shocked to see that my elder son is now nearly as tall as me - eep! He's not 12 yet!

Goody, I love Picture Threads!

I was hoping for another one soon but I was too chicken to start one.

Unfortunately I still don't have any new pictures since the last thread. I have a disposable camera almost full of photos taken this so far year but I haven't gotten to the end of them yet.

So I'll have to post the two I did last time. These are still the two most recent. I look the same anyhow; I just wish I had some new ones.

Anyhow, sorry about these old chestnuts; I'll get some new ones up after this weekend if the thread is still going.
