Randy Barnett, portraits by Gillian Crane

One of my best friends from college. We've known each other for 22 years. I realized I've never taken his picture before. Well, in college I'd take pictures of his legs to mess with him, he's got skinny little legs with very little hair on them (ha ha! he's going to laugh when he reads this). He used to have a complex about it, but now that he's older, he's not so worried about trivialities.  After all there are more important things to worry about - the economy is a mess, he's 47 and single...AND HE SPLIT HIS LIP AND HAD TO HAVE 5 STITCHES!!! when i first saw it i said "OMG that's 5 stitches? it looks more like 20!!!....uh, it's not that bad...really...you look fine..." Actually, i think it makes him look sexy.
