Contrary to most people's beliefs, there is nothing purposely symbolic about this photo.
[What? My right hand on my crotch?]
Okay, about that... That isn't supposed to be there. I was actually already about to stand up from leaning on the banana trunks since I thought the shot had already been fired. It turned out that the photographer had set the camera to take fast multiple shots. This is the second of three stills and it turned out better than the other two. I like my expression 'cause it's not staged.
Happy photographs are truly better taken without stopping to pose.
Anyway, I wonder what would happen to me if I go ahead and plant rice wearing this sort of outfit. Leaches would probably feast on my legs.
