The backstory behind this photo is after the break.

I'm doing a series of posts for 31 days that will feature a photo from my personal collections and the backstory behind the picture. I'm trying to stick with shots that have not appeared on the site before. I'm using the stories as a writing exercise to help me prepare for writing a book. You can find the rest of the series posts here:

When my best friend, Josh, visited DC we did the monument tour and stopped by the Albert Einstein memorial. None of us got any smarter.

I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you've got being right down to an art
You think you're a genius-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're a rocket scientist
That don't impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

Josh has a small phobia. He's creeped out by oversized things like large statues or creatures. When he clambered into Einstein's lap for a quick snapshot, I was impressed. Much.
