The party trick

By mrswoolybill
Not many people can do this...
Perhaps that's just as well...
The Performing Arts Department will miss this lad...
From the A Level results morning at Prudhoe Community High School. I thought this one deserved its own slot.
Thanks for looking,

"When I was young" there was a saying that if you pulled a funny face and the wind blew on you, it might stay that way - hope this is not the case here GrinGrinGrin
Whatever his results, he seems delighted enough to pose for the camera, and its given you a super capture Moira SmileSmile

Well I've seen alot of Party Tricks in my time Moira, and they all grab attention, and get a response Smile Best of luck to this Lad, and hopefully, He'll make a few problems disappear along the way too.

A great image, one which is always a pleasure to view. Unfortunately the Government still continues to take the shine off.

Obviously a follower of the Roger Moore School of Acting - the ability to express every feeling, emotion and expression by merely lifting one or the other eyebrow (never both simultaneously though).

I have another picture featuring this lad's eyebrows, they really have a life of their own... He was, I recall, particularly good in Little Shop of Horrors...
Cheers everyone.

Good on him, hope he got what he wanted. I liked Helen's comment... I still say that occasionally 'careful the wind doesn't change direction' meaning if it does your face will stay like that.

I am SO glad you put this one up on its own 'cos this one struck me as the funniest shot in that series. I can't remember exactly what I said but I think it was along the lines of how this guy will probably do REALLY well in the financial world in the future. I didn't know he was in Performing Arts. But hey, you never know where the road will lead him...

PS Thanks for pointing out how Lisi's background should be lighter in the mono version. I hadn't seen it earlier but yeah, I totally agree.

Great capture!

He certainly deserved his place alone with the rolling eyes. I can do that, but it takes a good bottle of something red and delicious, probably from the Montepulciano region of Italy.
