Laptops at Twenty Paces

You guys crack me up.

A few months ago, I turned one (well, the site did, anyway) and made this photo to go with the post.

Seems more than a few of you have created your own version of he shot. And there is even a Flickr group that has sprouted up to showcase the lampoons various forms of homage.

Fortunately most of the self-portraitists have much better raw material to work with than did I. So they got dat goin' for them. Which is nice.

If you want to make your own version and post it, you'll find the group here. Or you can see a slideshow of all of the previous submissions here.

This trend is like the whole "Tom from Myspace" thing.

I'd do one, but I've already done something like it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/84183401@N00/1054101912/ , I'm still figuring out how to use flickr though... sorry. :) Used a flash balanced to a hot light.

i had to add my ""tribute" to the pool too. Does it feel odd to have so many people mimic your every move (were not stalkers or anything!!)
oh and the slideshows are a great way of view the assignments etc too. cheers and keep up the great work.

thanks for posting this: it certainly created a sudden burst of activity and new members in the group!

btw. I have created a url so it is easier to find:

keep them coming you guys (maybe we should have a "Dave look-a-like" competition ? ;-)

It would be funny if this was an assignment and everyone with a Flickr account used the shot for their buddy icon. It would look like some strange cult thing.
