    Before and after
    I was asked to wait till the new forums got started---- so here goes...hope there are some takers seeing as i don't wanna be the only fool doing this :rolleyes: (although I see Steve has already posted one on his profile :) )

    Please post before and afters...pick your favorite childhood pic (in my case--- a scary hairy pic) and your most current available photo (no funky angles no --half faces) just your best mug forward...

    thanks :D

    Hmmm, post a childhood photo? I'll have to see if I can dig one out. I gotta warn you though, I was incredibly cute back then! :-)

    In the meantime, here's a fairly recent shot. June 2003. Self portrait, taken with a Coolpix 3500 balanced on my desk.

    I'm going to dig one up
    I just deleted all this old stuff off the computer. But I have some good ones..or not so good ones, depending on how you look at it.

    Also, are you sure you were two in that first pic? When I was two, I still had a head like a cue ball. Come to think of it, I was probably four before I got some decent hair...

    Geez, I'll have to take a current photo and dig around to find a child pic...I think I looked like Opie, from the Andy Griffith Show when I was little. :-)

    age 7, I think.
    Apparently back in the old days, when you wanted to crop a photo, you took out your scissors and cut it, because this is exactly how I found this one. Can you believe people actually dressed their kids like this? Wow, am I a dork.

    close, but i own these now http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=211999&is=USA

    and had i been a birder in my youth, i would have owned these.... http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=216833&is=USA

    OR THESE
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...u=63633&is=USA

    those HUGE terrestrial binos are not good for birding. my close focus needs to be under 15 feet and most big binos are 25 ft+

    i buy top quality gear with a life time idiot proof warranty when ever i can....... i'm an idiot at times :D

    btw... don't think i paid the inflated prices that B&H charge.... $745 for my leica 10x50BN's in NYC too :) hotbuyselectronics dot com shhhhh they are tough to deal with though!! typical "only have the kit which is MORE" line, but they come one way......KIT!!!!!!! :mad:

    I'm in
    OK, I'll drop my internet guard since I've already posted the childhood picture once before, and a self portrait as well. Both photos were scanned, not very well because I'm not used to scanning. Oh well. I chopped my maid of honor out of the current picture; I'm sure she'd understand. :)

    Is it authentic buffalo skin? :)

    Aren't you a cutie! Always had a soft spot for a cowboy!

    My life as a wandering smartass. I guess the burning question is: am I a product of HEREDITY or ENVIRONMENT?

    Well, considering I was raised by very funny parents in the suburbs of New York City, I'd have to say the answer is BOTH... :D

    Anyway, here are four small snaps to document parts of my snickering journey through life...
