The Golden Picture Story: Photo-shopped or Not?
Many people have asked me about my Golden photo, and most are convinced that I just photo-shopped the picture. So I thought I would tell the story behind the story, with a few more added photos just to add to the fun. The short of it is this: It is real in every way, and I have people to back me up! We took the picture at 7:00 am on a Sunday morning in downtown Golden. My wife Leslie, and my good friend Dan Thoemke were my partners in crime. Dan and I moved the desk back and forth, and Leslie took the pics. The desk was heavy, the coffee cup empty, and the lamp and computer real. Yes, we had to move the desk several times, even at 7:00 am for moving cars, but even the cars had fun with it. There are a few other hints. Notice my puffy eyes because I am not a morning person! Also you can see the sun rising on the foothills behind the pic. Definitely morning. I am sure a true photo pro could give you more proof. They are legit!
