Thanks Ted.

My biggest complaint is that this fellow didn't have a whole lot of 
passion, which doesn't make for a terribly exciting photo. There is 
another chap in that area, who's real brimstone and fire, but he 
carries his bible in a leather case, which makes it look like a day 
planer, and you really can't tell what his occupation is.

Here is another shot of this fellow (Preacher #2). I dumped it because 
you can't see the bible properly, but his pose is pretty good and gives 
a hint at his occupation. But frankly, it's close but no cigar, so out 
it goes.

Preacher #4 is the chap with the bible in the leather case. I don't 
think it really works, because you can't identify the book. So out it 
goes, too.

Just a silly shot I saw on my way to lunch. Reminded me of those Jack 
in the Box antenna heads you see...
