A revealing spur-of-the-moment photoshoot with my very new CouchSurfing friends Adrienne and Gabrielle re-enacting a scene from the Odyssey (Scylla, Charybdis, and an unfortunate sailor)

Here's an outtake.

The only way this could be made better (avoiding the obvious "pan down" joke here) is if you tell us that it was taken at one of those mall portrait studios. Well done Sir...and mams

I knew that didn't look right, but I was too lazy to look it up this morning. I end up having to look up the spellling for so many common words I use on here. Ridiculous.

@ned_kelly: You are correct. This is an extra picture I asked the photographer to take for Whiskerino purposes. The actual Odyssey scene, while tasteful and cool, included "des tétons", and is probably a bit too explicit for posting.

@Ploafmaster: Wow. The resemblance is striking. Too bad Keith Emerson was such a jackass. Can I be Greg?

I'm curious how you did the Scylla/Charybdis/sailor scene. I'm assuming you were the unfortunate mariner, but which lovely lady was the hideous monster, and which the treacherous whirlpool?
Posted: Nov 22nd, 2009 - 2:29pm -
mercantilever says:
@Dschonn: I believe that Adrienne (shaved head) was the hideous monster and Gabrielle was the whirlpool. In what I believe will be the shot that gets used, I am frantically crawling away, belly-up with a [comically] terrified facial expression while these two young ladies are frozen in asymmetrical "pounce" positions on either side of me, roughly forming a circle.

While this would generally be far beyond my comfort zone, it was a really wonderful, adulthood and friendship-affirming experience. Especially considering I only met these two people the previous evening. Life surprises me often these days…

awkward family photo?

BryanHunter says:
Scylla and Charybdis look much more pleasant here than I've always pictured them. This is pretty close to how I imagine Calypso's island though.

without even having a full beard yet, you convinced two lovely young ladies to strip down for this! Hats off to you sir!
