One of the funny and quirky photo projects I came across in Austin was Jim Storer, who was running around SxSW with a Red Sox garden gnome and a camera, taking images of everyone who’d pause for thirty seconds with the little guy.

What I didn’t realize until the last day was that one of the gazillion stickers I had printed up in lieu of business cards this year was stuck to the gnome’s bum, holding him together.

All around Austin, I kept getting “I recognize you from somewhere – have we met?”

Now I know why. They all remember my face from that Gnome’s ass.
