    ... to go out sometime within the next 24 hours-ish and take self portraits. Key note is that it needs to be plural and I don't mean those shots where I take them come back in the house and photoshop the bajeezers out of them, I mean take some shots and show us who you are. They don't need to scream "I'm sexy" "I'm hot" "I have abs of steel" (Okay, I lie, if you have abs of steel please share for us ladies :lol: kidding kidding)

    I was recently challenged to do the same and you know what, I resisted for a while and and yesterday just said 'to heck with it' and went out for 15 minutes, shot off 40ish frames and you know what.. worst/best experience ever! Don't say you will do it when you loose 10lbs or whatever (believe me, I am there, I have put on a ton of weigh this past year and haven't really put any effort into m appearance for a while boo) - just go out and do it and share them here!

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I can't find my way around on this forum anymore! :blushing:

    Here are some of mine - remember.. perfection is over rated!

    Dang, good work Peanuts!! You look wonderful in them, and as you say, they give a good feel for what you're like (unafraid to make faces for the camera!) and your artistic streak (shot 5)

    #6 was a good choice for your new avvy.

    I really like #2 and 5b.

    Well done, not like a steak, but like you done good girl.

    Nice challenge for all of us.
