In my attempt to use my blog as an unabashed source of embarrassment for both me and others, I found these pictures at home before my parents moved out of their house and I thought they would be humorous to share.

The funny part was that the dude insisted on putting a cowboy hat on me because he thought it was a good look for me. Being the pimply faced insecure recently chubby 17 year old that I was, I didn't object.
These are the results from the contact sheet:
Now if that doesn't scream classic cowboy, I don't quite know what does. Actually, I think I just hear the screams of discomfort. Either way, the results are brilliant.
