My grandmother took this picture when she visited me in 1994. I'm in Napoleon's French Bakery in St. Paul, MN. I know the picture captures the very essence of spontaneity, but in truth I must have held this pose for a good ten seconds waiting for her to press the button.
This is my friend Emily. About the time I took this picture, I realized that all my friends shared my affinity for making faces when presented with a faceful of camera.
This is Sony, who was my *girlfriend*. She pretty much looks like this all the time. Just kidding.
Jesse is a great friend of mine. He's the drummer in my band, and we often get together to slog through Bach 2-part inventions on the piano (one part each). The reason he looks so happy in this picture is that it's his birthday.
This is Katie Menzer and I in the Crum Regatta. We won! Just kidding. But I bet we clocked the best time ever for a Crum craft made of two plastic kiddie pools and two inflatable ones. It's as much fun as it looks.
What's fun is when your toilet explodes.
