Guitars, Motion and Genes

The other day I was playing my guitar and I accidentally flipped on the timer on my camera. I managed to catch the blinking light out of the corner of my eye and turned towards the camera. As it turned out, I kind of liked the picture so I took a few more. I Photoshopped the pics together and had a nice little sequence going just for grins. Then I noticed this picture.

This picture won't be all that remarkable to you. Sure, there's me, there's my guitar - like you haven't seen that before. But I think that, as strange as it may sound given the quality of the shot and the fluidity of motion, this is the first time I've ever seen any strong resemblance between myself and my father. So permit me yet another narcissistic moment. I'm sure there will be more but this one's different.

Isn't that shocking?

In the past few years I've really noticed my resemblance to my mom. Despite the fact she has thick black hair and olive skin, (compared to the white skin and thin brown hair I got from my German dad) my facial structure, features, and even expressions are mirrored of my mom's. I usually notice it in pictures when it happens and it's really shocking. Not that it's a bad thing, but it's just so....weird.

Aw... I don't think it sounds strange in the slightest. Your father must be a damn good looking guy! ;)

A lil vanity hurt no one... assuming they confessed their sin. Ha.

not that I mind, the pic is great.
