    I'm looking for an image to use of the JWs, It needs to be quite easy to identify them so I was thinking two people on the ministry or something like that. I was looking in the yearbooks but nothing really caught my eye, can anyone think of a specific picture which may do the job? :)

    There was a recent pic of Sam Herd (Gb member) stolling down the sidewalk with another brother, both with "bookbags" in hand.

    Could be copyright issues using it though.

    How come these "official" photos don't look anything like the occasional stragglers I see shuffling around the streets? They often appear lost in their own world, unsmiling, and increasingly despite the few men wearing suit and ties, they look badly dressed.

    Thanks very much for all the help, especially Wizard of Oz - I found the image I'm looking for! :)

    @steve2 I'm sure it's just a case of the organisation producing marketing images, notice also how they're always fairly attractive looking people.

    Eh, when has your burger at McDonalds or Burger King actually looked like the one on the billboard or TV commercial?

    Advertising at its best, having nothing to do with reality.......

    When you really think about it, the WTS. indoctrinates people to be the organization's own sales Representatives.

    The way they are to dress

    No suit pants for ladies

    No sport jackets that don't match the color of pants for men

    The length of men's hair

    How they are to talk

    What books and movies they are to watch ...etc ..etc.

    Everything is done with a pretentious formula to make the WTS. organization and the people who are inside of the organization

    to appear as wholesomely pure and honest as possible.

    God's Representatives here on earth so to speak

    In doing all of this, this pretentious reflection makes the WTS. deceivingly maligned published works look all more appealing to the public.

    Like a car salesman on a car lot complete with a warm and welcoming smile, telling their customers they are offering the best cars money can buy.

    I don't suppose a crotch shot of JW Prince in full flight on stage or pre mid-1980s Michael Jackson would be quite the image of JWs you're looking for?

    Hey Wizard - That guy in the pic on the top row in the middle is too good looking to be a Dub, hope he's seen the light and dumped the cult, he looks like he could be gettin' on the regular every day of the week to me !!

    @Shirley...... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. He doesn't do much for me. Thinking maybe he's a newbie, hasn't had time to buy book bag and making public display of affection to boot. (LOL)

    The guy second from left (below), is now an aposatate and an Atheist living in Utah! He and his wife visited us when they came over to the UK a few months back!
