Dead as a dodo

A nice welcome for yours truly during our final goodbye. Photo courtesy of ericdevries.
Let me qualify this post by saying that anyone who knows me, will be aware that I rarely drink alcohol. Very rarely. Almost never. Except when I go out with my photographer pal Eric de Vries. He's a bad influence. Fortunately he's moving to Siem Reap at the weekend so our once every six monthly bar hops will cease. My liver can breathe a sigh of relief. Last night was our final goodbye. He's moving to Siem Reap to open up his own gallery in due time. At the moment his work can be viewed at the McDermott Gallery. We popped our heads into a few bars last night to check out 'the scene' and it was as dead as a dodo. I wish him well in the Reap. Link: ericdevries. Read comments for more.

I have another de vries photo but even my mother would be ashamed to see it. I will only post it if more than half a dozen people specifically request it. It's not pretty and it shows me in a bad light, but we can't all be angels all of the time.
More than 6 and you get to see it!

If the first one's any indication my interest has indeed been piqued... My $.02 that you probably need to get out more often ;).

You are probably right Mike. Okay, at least another 4 requests and I'll post the second, and most scandalous picture. It could ruin my reputation as a Mr Nice Guy, it's that sordid. But if I don't publish it, I'm sure Eric will!

Why is it that people want to see me in disgrace? Is it that perverse side of human nature that needs to humble the good guys? That's if I was a good guy of course. The fact that there's a picture of me in a compromising position seems to bring out the worst in people :-)
1 more request and bingo, my reputation will be in pieces at my feet.

Do I look like I was born yesterday? #6 is just one of the previous five, but as anonymous. But then I didn't qualify it did I...so I'll have to post the photo afterall. Darn it, my reputation is shattered, but a valuable lesson for everyone else against the perils of the demon drink.
