I used to take a picture of every Computer Mine employee for the Computer Mine’s annual holiday card. It was a fun, little diversion from swinging the pick axe even if I could count on getting the same complaints from the same people every single year. “Why can’t you just use last year’s picture?” “Why do we have to do this?” “Why can’t I wear a hat?” “I hate doing this.” “Can you stand on top of the picnic table to get my angles?” “Can I have somebody hold my neck?” I actually do kind of miss it. Well, I miss some of it.
The pandemic and the fact now the grand majority of employees work exclusively from home has lead to my losing of this gig. Now, everybody takes their own picture and submits it. It is actually an improvement for the holiday card. It doesn’t look as professional, but it allows people to show off their personality. Even people who take pictures with their cat for some reason. So you know who the bad people are.
Last year, I did take my picture (obviously) and I also took pictures for two other pick swingers. Here are some of those pictures:
Next Sunday’s formal portraits will involve Kyle’s senior pictures again.
