    I like to know what who I am talking to looks like, just a thing. I'm sure many of you agree it is more personal that way. I'd post this in the self portrait thread, but some of the pics I am about weren't taken by me. You can also post a little info to make the convos smoother.

    And finally a cool kind of dazed black and white.

    Haha yeah, that was a gag to scare the sh*t out of my girlfriend. It worked. I put it in an animated gif where at first it was a "this image cannot be displayed" red "X" and after about 3 seconds it flashes to that full screen. I just liked the photo afterward.

    They are highly edited, and I am really pale, the added color came in from darkening and contrasting.

    <----- well, that's me. Usually less green, less shaky and less grumpy, but still.


    as for the pics, me like, but your eyes are really dark in #2 and I think #3 could benefit from upping the contrast. Well, I mean, the tree tends to take over.
    Oh and lose the can and cond...eh cookie.(?).;)

    Haha it DOES look like a condo.... Something was bothering me about it. It was a weird chocolate thing my friend gave me. this was at lunch in school today. One of my friend wanted to use my camera and I said sure. then she turned into a bossy photographer and said "sit by the tree, look natural" I just happened to be drinking a coke and eating the chocolate thing at lunch. It was pretty disgusting. "Strawberry poppin chocolate" it was called, came out of a lunchable.

    Essentially a milk chocolate disk with strawberry pop rocks melted inside of it.

    Hey Jaime, has anyone ever told you that your boyfriend looks like John Travolta? They say everyone has a twin.

    Hahaha!!

    Hes never gotten John Travolta!!! He gets Adam Sandler a lot when his hair is short though. And Isaac Hanson with his hair long, but I dont mind that, because Im a closet Hanson fan ;)

    I really like this photo. How did you get the washed out color look? It all looks really good.
