The photographer who'll be taking my portrait for my college alumni magazine is trying to think of a fresh way to make a picture of a crosswordy person visually interesting. (Photoshopping a crossword puzzle behind the head = dull.) One idea he has involves those outdoor chessboard tables at the park, where old men set up their chess games. Nothing better is coming to my mind. Wordplay stars, have you ever been impressed with a photographer's approach to making a picture of a crossword solver intriguing? Everyone else, have you got any terrific ideas for an eye-catching Portrait of the Solver as a Semi-Young Woman?
