That afternoon, I had an appointment to get my likeness taken by the renowned photographer Rob Gibson, whose work has appeared in the movie Gods and Generals.
Rob Gibson is preparing the plate for the image.

Trying out a pose.
Getting my hoop to cooperate.
Rob making sure everything is in its right place and since I am an author I was given a book to hold as a prop.
