At the CD launch

Tony & YvanTony and Yvan at the launch of Fine, the album by Ceol Manawatu at — where else? — the Celtic yesterday.
Rat's ass
This photo breaks some apparently important rules, but I still like it.

Update: In response to interest in what the t-shirt says, here's a hugely-cropped section from another photo.

Oooh... I spy a Guinness!

I like the broken rules, makes me want to keep looking. The smile on the left, the concentration on the right. Wondering what his t-shirt says.

Zhoen - Yvan's t-shirt says "I don't give an" with a picture of an ass underneath. Which doesn't work so well in NZ since we say arse not ass!

Yvan is the king of cool t-shirts.

I don't know how this picture breaks rules, Pete, but I like it.

Barbara, it would have been impossible not to have spied Guinness there. Especially at a function like that :^)

Zhoen, mostly I recognise the application of "rules" after photographing, not before. Sometimes they help if my intuition's equivocal.

Anne-Marie, I agree about Yvan's t-shirt mojo :^) Thanks.

The t-shirt actually also has a picture of a rat (to the left of the donkey) so it's more "I don't give a rats ass". :)

Ah, yes, of course: thanks Andrew. I think one of the other photos shows that better; I might do a small photo of it to add to this post.

Zhoen said...

Thank you, that is a great t-shirt.

It's so weird to see myself in photo, but it's a nice one. Thanks Pete. I never had so many people ranting on about my T-shirt though... I'm pleased... especially given the fact I didn't know the expression when I bought it, just had a guess...
see you tonight Pete I hope!

You're welcome, Zhoen.

Hey Yvan, you guessed well. The first time I saw you wearing that I laughed — and it wasn't at you ;^) And yes, I'll be there tonight. Got to make the most of the opportunities before swine flu forces me into precautionary quarantine in the valley.
