( My apologies in advance for the length of this post)
It is an odd and slightly jarring experience to unexpectedly encounter a photo of one's self on the internet. Some time ago, I stumbled upon a picture of myself on this page on the site for Velux Skylights:
|Not easily recognizable, but I know the photo well.|
|That's me, on the left; Rick is on the right. We're cooperating, or something.|
This is another photo from the same shoot, which appears less frequently:
|I actually appear to be doing something useful in this shot.|
Which brings us to Google.
I am not directly google-able, and if one were to search for my name with Google Image Search, this is the first thing one would find:
|From: David Austin Roses|
And some guy who apparently drives this:
|From NHRA.net: Pat Austin is the most successful drag racer born after the 1940s and the best driver of his generation. (Pat needs to lay off the barbecue and Budweiser, a bit.)|
|I'm not too sure just what this guy is selling.|
|Poland (my relatives would be proud)|
Unfortunately I do not receive any residuals (not that they would amount to much), as I signed away all rights at the time, but it is amusing and slightly satisfying to spot the photo occasionally in unexpected places.
