Photos from WordCamp Europe 2016

I work with so many wonderful photographers that I’ve stopped taking photos myself when I’m around them. There are always so many terrific photos that come out afterwards which other people have taken. Here are some of them.

This one was taken by Elio.

We look like gangsters, don’t you think? It looks like I’ve got boobs in that photo but in reality they’re non-existent. Maybe it’s a trick of perspective? The photo reminds me of this one from Reservoir Dogs:

At the WordCamp party on Saturday night there was a photo booth. Photo booths are popular things at parties now. What does that say about us? Are we all narcissists? I’m going to be even more narcissistic and post some of them to my blog 🙂

It’s pretty silly but lots of fun. All the rest are here.

A selfie from the same party with Matt Mullenweg. Stefan (on the very left) took this one.

I always get nervous around Matt because he’s a bit of a celebrity as well as my boss. The effect of this is that I try too hard not to look like an idiot which has the effect of making me look like an idiot. I’m sure there must be a word for this in German: the idiocy that is inevitable when trying to avoid idiocy. If there isn’t already a word for it then I think we should make one.

But my favourite one of all is this one, taken by Tammie. I’m pleased she chose black and white because it was horribly hot that day and my sweaty armpits are less noticeable.

  1. Great photos Rachel, looks like you had a fab time. I’m signing off blogging until September and just wanted to pop in to wish you and your lovely family a wonderful summer. See you in the autumn! 🙂

  2. The first photo does look like a mob shot — very cool. I don’t like having my photo taken but even I enjoy a photo booth. Probably because there are lots of props to hide behind 🙂
