I’m Not Exactly The Mona Lisa (More Like Lisa Simpson Most Days)

Oh dear…


The Skeptic Friends network have a fun little quiz going on and apparently “Half Mooner” believes my pose in a photo was done with a certain misson in mind:

Note: The original of the photo I got for the face above amazed me. The photographer used the exact pose and lighting of Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” masterpiece painting, except the photo was a mirror image of the painting. 

I’m certain this was intentional. I thought of Mona Lisa immediately when I saw the photograph. It turned out to be the easiest image that I ever had to paste into another.

The answer is no. It wasn’t intentional. It’s just what I look like, as immodest as that sounds.

Besides, the original (from 2010) not only has me facing another way, I’m in modern dress, seated in a bright red chair…:

Here’s a more recent picture, where I am facing the right way, but this photo hasn’t featured online yet:

When I’m not engaged in such rare moments of photo-posing (while thinking about how much caffeine it requires me to go anywhere near a photo shoot), I usually look like this:

Lisa del Giocondo wouldn’t be seen in respectable company wearing a shirt with “Robo” in Japanese, holding a MacBook – and as for the two-tone Converse sneakers…!

Thanks to Skeptic Friends forum for giving me a laugh before conducting an interview at a very early hour of the morning!
