handsome devils: part deux

Yet another example of the acorn not falling far from the tree. The one on the left is my dad's senior picture and the one on the right is mine.

That's even scarier a resemblance.

And speaking of scary, i would never have recognized you from your senior photo.

I love that high school senior photo smirk you've got there. Classic. No guy's senior photo was complete without it.

Mark, I could show you quite a few photos of me from over the years that you would probably have trouble recognizing as being of the same person. I change my look pretty drastically every couple of years or so. It's pretty amazing what a different hair cut and some facial hair can do.
Michaela, that's the smirk that says, "That's right, I'm a senior and because I'm a senior, I'm absolutely going to get away with murder this year."
But, then again, I pretty much always smile like that.

i definitely understand what you're saying about the evolution of one's appearance. this is the first stretch of 6 months together where i haven't changed my haircut since high school. i ran into a guy at 10th pres when i was visiting in the fall who graduated from william & mary in '03 and we had played on IV worship team together--and he did not recognize me. and then once he did, he kept staring at me, as if he was trying to figure out what was different. i'll have to put some pictures up so you guys can see.
