photo by student
During the first period, a student rushed in to give me this photo she took of me for her art class. I like it. I don't usually like photos in which I am not smiling. It seems like my face when not cracked in a smile is in a snarl. But, this photo is nice. Perhaps in sepia it would recall photos from the past when no one smiled but rather stared through the lens to their photographer: serene, mild, difficult to discern the mood or sentiment.
