First photo of Steve Jobs back at Apple (Via TMZ)

The photo of Steve Jobs above was taken at about 3pm Wednesday afternoon as the Apple boss left the company headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Jobs took a temporary leave of absence in January of this year for a liver transplant and supposedly returned to work about a month ago. He hasn’t made any public appearances since he’s been back, but maybe it’s because he doesn’t want any of his fans seeing him in this alarmingly thin state. We all know that an extreme life threatening condition like liver disease can take a tremendous toll on a person’s physical appearance, but still, seeing him this skinny could be unsettling to many.

At any rate, he’s wearing his classic Steve Jobs attire of a black turtleneck, jeans and sneakers. He’s back at work, out walking and we’re hoping to see a lot more of him soon.

Thanks to a TMZ shutterbug for the pics, which were reportedly taken with an iPhone ;-)
