Everyone say cheese, except you-we're gonna cover your face anyway
Sarastic Kudos to the photographer who was responsible for the above picture. At Sawgrass Elementary School in Florida, a student whose parents did not want their child to appear in any pictures taken at school was covered with a super-imposed brown smiley face.
According to the Huffington Post, the picture-taking guy said he was just doing his job.
While the photographer, David Claussen, would not agree to go on camera, he told WPLG that he never meant to cause such controversy and that he was only following orders.
Claussen said, according to the station, that when he asked the school's P.T.A. how he should handle the student -- since he was sitting in the front row and didn't have a consent form-- they requested he place the smiley over his face, instead of a star Claussen reportedly recommended.
