    Interesting; I like to try to read whatever I can into a photo (and my accuracy is probably as good as rolling dice…). Your eyes are wide open and eyebrows slightly raised, as if to imply a clear-headed and skeptical view of the world. This is reinforced by the slightly pursed lips, which seem to imply a slight displeasure with the people and/or scene around you. Perhaps you are thinking, “Getting everything lined up for this @#$%^&* passport is a real pain in the ass!”? 🙂
