Photo of the Day: Don't Take Life too Seriously

There you go! Sunday March 27th 2011 Edition of Morning Star News. Easy!

I agreed to help a friend help 'his' friend, by having my photo taken in his 'shop'. I was told it was a photograph shop, and that they wanted a picture of a foreigner to use as advertising. Well little did I know what this favor was going to entail.

They wanted me in make-up and special clothes, and to pose for a professional photographer.

Well it was all a bit of a laugh really; the biggest of which was that the jacket was 6 sizes too small while the shirt was 6 sizes too big, and the photographer kept asking me to lean forward in the chair - but really - I couldn't move in that jacket. Finally he got me to put on my own jacket.

All just a little fun! Hope you enjoy these photos. Life in China is certainly strange at times.

Whew! This modelling gig is tiresome!

No Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly but hell - I'll give anything a go once!

When I picked up these computer images I was asked for permission to approach the Baotou Fashion Magazine Editor. My photographer thinks I would be great for that mag. Who knows - I may yet have another career waiting just around the corner. Lord knows I will soon need one. Time is running out for me to be teaching in China, and this job at Magic City pays less than peanuts.
