Plausible Deniability

Plausible Deniability

As a photojournalist I post a variety of photographic musings and tangentially related stories in a variety of spots on the web. My wife does not share my enthusiasm for social media and so I state, for the record: this photo is definitely not my wife and I circa 1989. It was definitely not shot on a Pentax ME Super using Kodak 400 speed colour film and I did not use a self timer and a Star-D tripod to get the shot. The locale was (not?) Staten Island’s Conference House beach – the southernmost spot in New York State.

Oh, yes, lest I forget: today is definitely not my wife’s birthday. (Happy Birthday Kid).
