The "Picture Of Me" Thread

So, yesterday was my birthday and I've been wanting to participate in that "10 year difference photo challenge" that was going around earlier this year. I'd decided on a photo to recreate, but since it was a birthday photo, I thought I'd wait to recreate it until on my birthday.

 

Anyway, here it is:

PS: That is actually a 20-year comparison... Photo on left is me on my 14th birthday, on the right is me yesterday on my 34th birthday.

Thanks! Yeah, same shirt. It was a souvenir from our trip in 1998 to Mt Rushmore, so I only wore it a couple times and then it stayed in the closet untouched because I wanted to keep it looking nice.

 

One thing about being autistic is that I end up with favorite pieces of clothing that I'll either wear over and over and over until it's all holey, or I'll keep but not wear much because I love how it looks and I don't want it to get worn out. I don't get new clothes very often, mostly because when I ever do have a bit of money (like for bdays and Christmas), my brain prioritizes special interests over necessities like new clothing.

 

Anyways, thanks for the birthday greetings!

I took this pic yesterday at Camden Park, my first park since Sept 2016. Between law school and studying for the bar I didn't have time to go to parks. Now that I am barred and lost about 40 pounds, I feel like its time to get back in the saddle.

From my Retro Collection....

 

And as a tip of the sword to Game of Thrones' recent...ending.....I have this photo to share.

 

Taken at the 2014 Pacific National Exhibition (our PNE), from a traveling exhibit of the GoT,

between Seasons 2 and 3. It was a traveling exhibit that we got For FREE, entering The Fair.

Other cities that the exhibit visited, did not get in for free. Hah!

 

That said, they had a "wannabe" Iron Throne there, so naturally I had my own "pose" in mind...

^ Awesome you're wearing those SOCKS!!! They're doing it again Bert, for the Out Day at the PNE, Aug.29th. So I am very curious if they changed the design, somehow. Instead of just changing the date on the cardboard holder. Might I reserve you a pair if they are a different design?

 

Here's me, trying to be artsy, using one of the (dirty) mirrors on

Playland's Carousel. Didn't work out that well, as you can see...

The better of the two shots I took. As I am eating my camera. June 14th.

Yeah, I'm really late in posting this (just burned out from work and such).

 

I've never been comfortable being photographed, so this may be the only time on this board I'll post a photo of myself.

 

And it may not look like it, but I really am smiling (which is rare for me).

^ Thanks. I wish though, I had considered, that the VIP Pass was blocking all that neon coaster artwork loveliness on my 2017 Cedar Park t-shirt. Probably was on my 5th Stella Artois by then, so my mind was just telling me to get the damned photos taken, LOL!

...And this is what I called The Wierdo Shot. And oh, look. I lost part of my right arm. :p

Here's one of me taken today, after I reached my "Age Milestone" of 66 rides on Coaster, at Playland(PNE).

 

It's an old coaster hippie thing, really.

I like the other one, that's taken closer up. Check out Playland(PNE) thread for that photo. (o:

I was "framed" in a few pix by CTV National News, in their info.tent located in front of

the main Playland entrance. Earlier today. A few were taken with my camera. This was a fairly good one.

And 47 years on, too! :p

Here's one of me, that David took, when we were on our Knott's-Disney Trip last week.

Unfortunately, neither of us really realized how much my face was covered in sha-doe.

 

Ah well, it's a traditional spot I've had pix taken of me, since I first went to DL in....1963!

Yeah, I was a 10 year old runt back then. And I have that old retro photo "somewhere around here".

IMG_1028.thumb.JPG.eefc8a130767426f45631cdee0c4d4bf.JPG

Sept.12/19. And neither of us has aged "that much". :p

^ You are definitely a HANDS UP! kinda guy, Bert.

 

Here's a shot that David took of me in DL (Sept.09/19), taking a photo of... The Blue Milk.

 

"Tourists that make you go hmmmmm?", hmmm?
