Last night, after learning that my favorite department store offers photos, I went in to have my ARC pictures taken. It must be the seventh or eighth time I’ve done so, and before it’s always been about the same. I sit down, some guy takes my picture, I come back an hour later and that’s that. This time was different. The guy spent literally 40 minutes mercilessly photoshopping my image. He lowered my right shoulder, he made the scar on my forehead disappear, he smoothed out the appearance of my stubble, he lightened my eyebrows from black to a slightly reddish brown, and he even made me 5 shades whiter. I really wish I had the original, but here’s the result.

There’s something he did that made my eyes look glassy, too.
