Gunther


Gunther is a scientist with a Ph.D. in things about viruses that I don't understand.
He and his wife were born in Vienna.
They moved to the USA for Gunther to pursue post-doctoral studies.  
Before retiring, he was an executive at a Massachusetts biotech company.

Gunther is a talented runner, swimmer, cyclist and photographer, and a healthy eater.
I hate him.

Now! Now! Jack, what's to hate?

SRQ said...

But, you're a talented photographer, Jack! I like his pose and partial smile. And, while it would've been difficult to plan this, I really like the color of his buttons -- provides a nice accent. P.S.: Did you make it to SRQ?

His life story shows the benefits of immigration.

You are such a hoot, Jack, and you do start my morning off with a great laugh!! Thank you -- those healthy guys/gals drive me nuts, too!!

Hah!

A good portrait, Jack!

Jack, don't be jealous of Gunther. He may be intelligent, athletic, and good looking, but you have more hair than he does.

Karl Demetz said...

Good and "clean" portrait, Jack!

Sue said...

Hate is strong word, Jack.

VP said...

I have only one thing in common with Gunther, and (not much) more hair...

I'm sure you are equally talented, Jack. (And I rather like you :)).

RedPat said...

I really like this shot of him!

Tell us how you really feel Jack!

Nice portrait.

Kay said...

Now Jack, don't mince words here.
All you need to do is sew on a few orange buttons, get carried away shaving, and, well, hire a trainer and you're on your way. I've found that "retired" can cover a host of other shortcomings.
Great portrait!
