The ‘Before’ Session

Before my appointment with Mindy this evening, I thought I’d better commemorate what I was about to lose. Of course, you can click the pictures to biggerize them.

Because hair, that's why.

Yep, the hair had only hours left as part of my head. I pulled out a couple of lights, a box fan, and my favorite portrait lens and took a few selfies.

It turns out ten seconds is not quite enough time to find your mark (has to be perfect for the focus), get your hair blowing in the wind, get into position, and finally switch off the photographer and activate the inner model to throw some personality back toward the camera.

Who knew the line between glam and metal was so narrow?

Guitarists: pay no attention to my left hand; getting that detail right was just one detail too many.

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

I can see opportunities lost in all of these poses, but that’s the way it goes. I’m featuring ones here that show my hair in all its glory. Yes, an ‘after’ episode is coming soon. I’ll leave you with another guitar solo face.

Shorn!

Here’s a picture of me taken yesterday:

Yeah, buddy, that's his own hair.

Pretty stylish, eh?

Here I am this morning:

It's going to be a wig!

And shortly thereafter:

Soon thereafter

This is what I look like now.

Almost respectable! I don’t think there’s much more to say. Thanks to everyone who participated in the fundraiser. Maybe I’ll do it again in a few years.
