031aIt has been a while since I have published a mug shot gallery. The pictures have continued to arrive from far and near and now the time has arrived to post another round.


Readers will recall that over a year ago, I offered to send out a D&O Diary coffee mug to anyone who requested one – for free – but only if the recipient agreed to send me back a picture of the mug and a description of the circumstances in which the picture was taken. In previous posts (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here , here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), I published prior rounds of readers’ pictures. I have posted the latest round of readers’ pictures below.


It wouldn’t be a proper D&O Diary mug shot gallery without at least one picture from overseas, and in this collection we have two. The first comes to us from Sydney, Australia. Chris Smith of the Lee and Lyons law firm sent us this picture taken from his office on Macquarie Street in Sydney. Chris reports that across the road from his office is the Royal Botanic Gardens, beyond which lies Sydney Harbour.








Our next mug shot comes to us from Bermuda, and depicts Josh Schwartz of ACE Bermuda Insurance, in Hamilton, Bermuda. I wonder how many years of wearing Bermuda shorts it takes to be able to wear the shorts  as nonchalantly as Josh.













The next mug shot was sent in from Atlanta, but nevertheless is in keeping with the theme of The D&O Diary mug as a global phenomenon. The picture was sent in by Dave Leonard of the Carlton Fields Jorden Burt law firm and it shows the view to the north from Dave’s midtown Atlanta office.









The next picture was sent in by new friends Rebecca Wolinsky and Sarah Voutyras of the Boundas Skarzynski law firm in New York. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca and Sarah at an industry event near Wall Street. They sent in this colorful picture from the Jefferson Market Garden, which they described as a “beautiful park in the west village.”










The final picture in this collection was sent in by Andy Hamilton, who is the risk manager for Spectra Energy. Andy provided this description of his picture: “I attended the Zurich Classic this weekend in New Orleans and participated in a home rebuilding project in the St. Bernard Parish sponsored by Zurich. Here is a mug shot from the project site.”










It is always such a pleasure to receive readers’ mug shot and to see the places they have taken their pictures. I know that other readers want to get in on the action but I am afraid I can’t fulfill any more mug orders, as my mug supplies are exhausted. Readers who would still want to contribute a picture can send in a photo of their own firm’s mugs, which I would be happy to publish.


In any event, many thanks to everyone who has sent in a picture. All of the mug shots are great and it has been a lot of fun sharing them with the other readers.


To make it easier to view past picture gallaries, I have added a new Mug Shots category to the Topics index in the right hand column.
