    But when I do, it's when I'm doing science and I need an updated picture of me doing science things!

    I spent much of yesterday morning and afternoon at school, spawning American Sandlance (Ammodytes dubius), and ultimately helping my fellow grad student set up an acidification experiment with these fish. I don't often get pictures of myself working in the lab, but we had a few minutes of downtime so I propped my camera up on a box and grabbed a few. Here I'm counting eggs on a 500micron mesh screen--we needed 100 eggs per replicate, and each one had to be counted with the scopes.

    It's a knock off Wenger. Got the face for like $70, and the strap is handmade Horween leather made by Bexar Goods. It's nothing fancy, but I beat the hell out of it with salt water at work, and it's been going strong for a long time.

    Best,
    Jake

    Thanks for the kind words! I really did a lot of selective adjustments on this image after I converted it. The room we were in has atrocious lighting, so most times I prefer to convert to B&W.

    Best,
    Jake
