I was recently asked to provide a photo of myself to someone who is collecting images of Baptist women 'firsts'. Not exactly Miss Photogenic 2013, and not exactly sure what I look like anymore, I posted three possibilities on my Facebook page and invited my 'friends' to vote. It was interesting to read the comments and reasons for choices, but the one they chose, and which will find its way into Baptist lore is this one:
It was taken on the day of my 50th birthday bash at church, and I like it because I am wearing some of favourite colours. It's also not too formal but not too casual either. Of course a more honest portrayal would be the dragged through a hedge backwards look... but no-one said it had to be honest!
