Blog Guy, it’s me. That aspiring photojournalist you’ve…

jessica vertical 160Been mentoring, Right, I know. At some point I should ask your name, but let’s not rush it. So what is it now? More pope shots?

No, it’s sports photography. I’m going out to cover a Formula One race, and I know that’s got to be tricky, so any tips you can give me…

Sure. Which driver has the best-looking girlfriend?

Excuse me?

Crap, you’ve learned nothing, have you? You go there, you find out which driver has a gorgeous girlfriend, and you shoot her. THAT’S what people want. Look here, these are some classic Formula One shots.

Well, if you say so, but shouldn’t we at least show one actual driver? I mean, what about the one who is dating this chick? How about him?

Sigh. Okay, here. Are you glad you asked?

So, Button, Button, who’s got the Button is the only driver with a gorgeous girlfriend?

Is he in the Goofy Face Museum?

If he isn’t Billl he is now.

And yeah, she is ok. There are so many other gorgeous sports girlfriends out there though.

And his last name is Button? I kinda feel a bit sorry for him.

That’s a harsh picture of Mr Button, he’s actually pretty cute. A short@rse I assume, since he fits in an F1 car, but cute nonetheless.

Pretty stick-inse,, sorry, girl.
Perhaps she’s shielding her eyes to better see discarded french fries. Or Button mushrooms.

Button’s photo reminds me of one of me — an ID pic taken immediately after 14 hours of flight time to Hawaii (the Big Island). I hadn’t slept in over 24 hours. I look like I’ve been regularly struck by lightning.
