Yes, feel free to run away now, if you’re so inclined lol.
The funny thing is, I thought I’d posted this on here, but seemingly I only posted it on my main blog, not this one. So as to be totally unbiased in scaring my readers, here is a ‘photo’ taken while I was in Seattle in April
Yes, you’re right, its not a genuine pic, I have no idea if its even possible to get to a point at that angle from the Space Needle, to be honest. Though that is genuinely me! What happens is, when you first enter the Space Needle at ground level, they take your picture in front of one of those screens. And no, I didnt break the camera lol.
When you reach the top, and have done your trip around the viewing platform, there are a series of machines where you can view the picture taken, and have an option to having various views behind you, all strangely enough including the Space Needle in them. All quite nice, but this is the one I chose. The surprising bit was, you could have it emailed to you, for free! Now that was a nice surprise, believe me. You could buy a nicely framed one, but as I wouldnt do much with it, I settled for this.
To be honest, I like it, I dont often seem to get decent pictures of myself, but this one… No, I’m not going to win Miss World, not even the over 50’s version lol, and even if I desired them, I wouldnt wait for the rush of marriage proposals either. But short of a professional makeover shoot, this is probably as good as I get.
Yes, you’re right, no make up was involved in this picture, I’m just that way inclined, and besides which, I would rarely find the time, even if I could nowadays, which I probably couldnt, its been too long for that. And hey, I could hardly hold up the queue, even if I’d had any with me.
The song, well, its nearly as old as me! I dont know if I bought the record, or whether it was bought for me, but I once owned the original Piccadilly label 45, featured in this video. As I would have been 4 when this came out, I cant be sure which it was. I do remember playing it on record players for a few years after that though.
