Okay, not an almost-councillor. He came dead last. But still, points for effort.

This was my run-and-gun photo of Jeremy during week one of his month-long endeavour to grow a Movember mo.

The photo isn’t a technical masterpiece, by any means, but I really liked how it turned out, and I think it captures his Jeremy-ness.

Thankfully, his moustache isn’t exactly a big distraction to the eye.

Having won the Best Lame Mo, um “award” in 2009 for a most pathetic showing of philtrum hair, Jeremy’s never been particularly strong in the Mo department but, again, points for effort.
