What is the story behind your Avatar? Mine was sized down from a corporate photo shoot and was taken by a friend of mine. When I first joined, my original avatar was removed because I didn't fully read the rules. I've used several but this one seems to suit me for now.

Just a pic. of me working away with one of my puppets at Greater Manchester Police Club, UK! Don't pose for photos or have studio pics done these days, - not because I'm getting old and ugly - but find that people really appreciate 'on the job' (if you pardon the phrase) photos. I think any good photographer can make you look like 'Minnie Mouse' - but people sometimes see something very different on the day do you not think? Smile

My avatar has more Photoshop work on it than a Cosmo cover. The original pic was actually taken when I was testing to see if my camera was working. See the shirt I'm wearing? I hate that shirt. And the sunglasses? I sat on them and broke them two days ago. Poor, poor little sunglasses... *sniff*

I chose it, because it looks alot like me.

But seriously,
My first shot was an anomoly. The reflection from the monitor off my (gee, I'm getting old) reader's glasses looked neat. The current is a transformation from the old to a new, 'no glasses on' pic. I made it because someone asked what I looked like without the specs.

My avatars are just web cam pictures that I took over a year ago. I actually had Mr Eubank get creative and what you see is what he came up with. I think it looks pretty cool. Thanks Rob. Smile

My avatar image was taken on a rollercoaster. It shows, doesn't it?

For any fellow coaster freaks, the ride was "Air" at Alton Towers. It's the one where you're hung face-down in a kind of "skydiver" position. The photo was taken automatically during the ride.

I have no explanation for the weird flash spilling from my eye in the picture. Just sorta turned out that way.

Cheers,

Cy.

I tried to do something that wasn't particularly imaginative and would require as little effort as possible. You can see what I came up with.

And I'm sending out a big "Hey" to Brian who hails from my home town. I used to hang out at Callin Novelties back in the day when Eddie Callin was still around.

My pic is from one of my college student cards. It was the only photo of myself I could find at the time.

I started with what I thought was a very creative avatar, but it was not in compliance with the rules so it was removed.

Been meaning to come up with a new one for a while now but you know how that goes - one of these days.....

This is one of my favourite photos of me and my son. Taken when he was a couple of months old and we both fallen asleep on the couch together after a hard morning of playing!
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are

Mine is from a picture I changed through photoshop. It originally was from one of the pictures on my site that I made look like a sketch.

I had a few with me and Harry as the avatar--then I just did a me one (which was actually when I got out of college one summer and lived out in the sticks) I was 22 then? 10 years later--I look pretty much the same but now have stretchmarks--thanks kids!
