Wondering how many others will have the same idea. Silly one ;-) I'm gonna' be SHOCKED if it's original.

Probably should have dressed up but I didn't have a lot of spare time today, so this turned into a casual gathering facsimile. I actually had name tags in the house, but I can't remember from what ... something years ago. Guess it's good we rarely throw anything out.

Converted to B&W mostly because I had water in the glass and I wanted it to look like wine of some sort. Maybe should have been drinking a beer given the casual clothing but again, oh, well ;-)

Taken from this angle because I wanted to get the POV of someone who has either met the person before and forgot the name or hasn't met them; in either case the gaze drops to the name tag. Taken outside in late afternoon because it was faster than setting anything up lighting inside.

Mostly just hoping to entertain a voter or two.

PP - converted from RAW, duotone, burnt liquid in glass and background, blurred background some, resized, sharpened, burnt/blurred background some more, cloned out spots on t-shirt.
