Day 21: All-Time Favorite Picture of Myself and Why

My first choice is either of my permit pictures. Yes, really. The first one expired, okay? I had to renew it. Or possibly the picture from my first driver's license. Of course, I don't have access to any of those because the nice people at the DMV took them away each time they issued me a new one.

Instead all I have to show you is my current license picture. It's definitely not the best of the lot, but it'll do.

I don't know what it is. Maybe I just like what that DMV blue does to my skin tone, but I always love pictures of myself that are taken there.

It also seems to be the one time I don't mind posing for a picture. I wouldn't be bothered if people snapped my picture like a tabloid was paying them to do it. I just despise having to stop whatever I'm doing and hold a cheesy grin until someone's done figuring out how to work their camera. Candid shots all the way.

Except, of course, apparently, if it's for an official, state-issued identification card. I think the fact that all four of them have turned out relatively awesome has made me a little more willing to hold still for a few seconds. But only at the DMV. My passport picture is terrible.
