I'm going to try to enroll the boyfriend into taking a proper shot of me wearing it next week, but it's hard to find a time when me, someone I trust the other side of a camera and the sunlight can all be scheduled together.
I like this photo though. Completely by accident, I realised the background (a section of my bedroom wall) says a lot about me.
The map in the bottom right hand corner is of London, the snippet you can see is roughly where I grew up. Next to this is Barbie. Note, this is Astro-Barbie, standing on the moon. Back when I was an undergrad I had to write an essay with a title something along the lines of "When Barbie's first words are 'Math is Hard', is there any hope for women in science?" I can't remember what my answer was, but I put this pic of Astro-Barbie on the cover.
To the left of Barbie is a postcard of a painting of my primary school. The large poster my hand is actually resting on is a diagrammatic history of the London Underground. I currently live roughly where my wrist is. This is the geekiest poster I own and I love it. Uslan, he of exchequered fame, gave it to me as a birthday present years ago and it always has pride of place in my flat.
