Photos of DNA

I'm amazed! More photos of Douglas.
I know it is perhaps in bad taste to notice these things, but in every obituary or website, the only photo of Douglas Adams used is http://www.bbc.co.uk/h2g2/guide/B360093 They are cropped differently in different places, but essentially identical.

Fragilis - h2g2 Cured My Tabular Obsession

I don't think it's in bad taste to notice. Just in case you didn't see it, Mark Moxon listed yet another photo in his comment on this article (see "...another cracker"). That one's a bit on the strange side, I must admit, but there you go.

Probably the web sites keep using the same photo because it was released by Adam's family/agent/whatever to distributed news services like the Associated Press and Reuters.
