Michael Garibaldi at Dragon*Con

An older gentleman walked up to our table and started chatting, and at some point I asked if I could take a picture of his behind for my project.

So there I was at "Dragon*Con":http://www.dragoncon.org/ last year, having fun with a personal project. I was taking pictures of peoples' derrieres, and planning on putting together a slideshow titled "Gettin' a Piece of A** at Dragon*Con '08."

An older gentleman walked up to our table and started chatting, and at some point I asked if I could take a picture of his behind for my project. He looked a bit bemused but bent over and complied. I snapped my shot.

A bit later, he wandered away to mingle with others, and my friends started laughing. "What's so funny?" I asked. "Do you even know who that was?" they questioned. I replied that I didn't, which is when they filled me in that the person whose rear end I'd just gotten a picture of was "Michael Garibaldi!":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Garibaldi I almost fell over I was so stunned!
