I’m doing this post on the old desktop machine because the new laptop does not have image manipulating software. I got the pictures from the Shearing of the Sheep ritual last month but had to do a lot of brightening up so that they were usable, because while the flash was bright enough to dazzle me it wasn’t bright enough to get a good picture. There was some blurring of some of the pictures because of laughing as everybody was feeling a bit giddy about the ritual (since it was announced that the cutting part would be as goofy as possible).
First we had to figure out how to keep the hair where the birds could get it and not down my shirt.
And a few minutes later it’s easier to see we re-purposed a garbage bag as a barber’s apron.
Moving outside to the chair under the parking lot light.
And here is where the Mohawk starts.
And a pause to “admire” the handiwork.
Both ears showing now.
I looked so distinguished with just the tuft on the chin.
And the finished project.
As I said the focus for the camera was adversely affected because the photographer was laughing so hard. I hope you enjoyed the pictures of my shedding 4 month’s worth of hair and beard.
