Lots of guys adjusting ties?

March 11, 2009

Blog Guy, I hear your textbook on news photography is coming out soon, which is great! Meanwhile, apart from handshakes and group shots, what other photos do readers really love?

As you can see here, shots of men adjusting their ties are always a hit.

For real? I wouldn’t have thought that.

Our photo archive has thousands of them, so they must be popular. Often, we’ll shout out, “Mr. President, your tie is screwed up,” just so he’ll grab it and we can get one of these treasured pix.

Wow. Are there other similar specialty shots?

You bet. You should see our collection of guys pulling up their zipper, women making sure their hoop earrings aren’t attached to a limo that’s about to drive off, and the universally popular “There’s somethin’ huge hangin’ out of your nose” series.

Stop brushing your teeth, and join the Oddly Enough blog network!

That’s a lot of at-tie-ered men!

Are the earring limo pictures also a recent blog? They sound funny.
