031aThe long-running and ever-popular D&O Diary mug shot show may just about have reached the end. I have only three remaining unpublished mug shots, which I have been holding onto for a while in the hope that perhaps some other readers might send in the pictures. But I don’t want these pictures to get stale, so I have published below this short form mug shot gallery. It is entirely possible that these pictures may be the last in the series.


Readers will recall that early last year , 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, here and here), I published prior rounds of readers’ pictures. I have posted the latest round of readers’ pictures below.


The first pictures in this collection come to us from Peter Hui of ACE USA in New York. The first picture, which was taken in early July, depicts a sunny scene in New York’s Bryant Park. The second picture is taken from an office overlooking Times Square.






















The next picture was taken in Brazil by Guido Cosenza of A.J. Gallagher in Glendale, CA. Here is Guido’s description of his picture: “I had the privilege of attending the World Cup in Brazil and one of the matches I attended was the quarterfinal match between Argentina and Belgium in Brasilia. My colleague, Ryan Davis, had ordered a D&O Diary mug from you so I grabbed it from his desk before I left and took it with me to Brazil. Attached is a picture inside the stadium about 2 hours before kickoff. I know you are a big futbol fan so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.”










Thanks to Peter and Guido for their great pictures. Guido, you are right, I really did enjoy your picture (and I am deeply envious of you for having been able to attend the World Cup).


My thanks to everyone sent in a mug shot. It has been great fun receiving the pictures and seeing the amazing diversity of locations where people took their mug shots. There is still time for anyone who still wants to send along their own mug shot; nothing would make me happier than to be able to publish another round of pictures.


Cheers to everyone who helped make this series so much fun.
