when a bighead pic goes wrong

Party time!, originally uploaded by karlakp.

This picture of me and Grant is an example of abject failure as applied to bighead photography. The general idea is to get the heads INTO the picture.

OK, yes, we were drunk.

Arctic Russian bighead with Swedish flag

I was lucky enough to get to join in on a geological study trip to Svalbard, in the Norwegian Arctic. It was the trip of a lifetime, and I will never forget it. (Plus i celebrated my 40th b day there!) The thing that made this experience beyond special was the people, my coworkers.
This is my very sweet Russian coworker Evelyne, in front of the Swedish flag. (The boat we traveled on was of Swedish register.)
She always has a smile on her face, I've never quite met anyone with her golden sunny view of the world. She shoots the idea of the dour Russian straight to hell. Here's to Evelyne's big smiley head!
