Ssssh. I'm supposed to be working, but instead I'm busy creating my own distractions. After months of neglecting both my blog and my Myspace page, out of the blue today I decided they both need new avatars. Now. I pulled a few recent photos of myself from my hard drive - some self-portraits and some taken by others. Some are flattering, some are not-so, some are just odd. If you get bored and don't have anything else to do, let me know which one you think would make the best profile picture.
The first one is one my daughter took of me playing with the corgis.
I have this really cool thrift store mirror and sometimes I take pictures of myself in front of it. Yes. I know it's weird. I took this full body shot the other day. My husband likes this one, but then again he likes curvy girls.
I got the idea for shooting myself in the mirror after someone took this black and white one of me reflected in it. At the time Iwas in a rather animated conversation about something although now I don't remember what. I was probably defending one of my superior notions over someone's idiotic ones. ;-) Either way I really love this picture, even though I look a bit distressed in it.
The last one is one my daughter also took of me outside in front of the Mexican petunias.
OK, that's it. If any of you want to weigh in, I'd appreciate it. Once I make a decision that will be one less pointless distraction.
Oh, and if any of you are on MySpace and want to become friends, let me know.
Return of Bird of the Week: Macaroni Penguin - Macaroni Penguins, despite their silly name, are another amazing mountaineering species of penguin. These photos are all from a bouncing Zodiac rubber raft...
