Title: Your avatar 2
Post by: vonkara on May 25, 2008, 19:05
There was a tread made by aka tom last october about avatar. Since, there's many that have upgraded their avatar and also new members whit avatar.

Q: What is your avatar or what it represent to you?

Mine is a picture of cake colorant dropping in water, but was unusable because the glass was too thick and made the picture out of focus. Downsizing, sharpening, nothing was enough. What's yours?

Everyone pisses me off. So I just made it easier for people do it. My avatar
represents a glass button that is wired directly to my emotions.

.....go ahead! Push my button

Mine's a Bateleur, which is a sort of African eagle that I love. Amazing birds - they spend pretty much all day on the wing, gliding effortlessly using the air currents.

It been a while I looked at your avatar and asked myself if you was having different angles of this puppy. I say that because I already see what really look like this puppy but in a different angle on greetings cards at a small store near my home whit about the same background behind the dog.

I remember to having purchsed them to compare from your avatar, but I finally forgot. Do you already haved an extended liscense for one of your puppy?

Mine has four parts to it:

The yellow background is a blur of the hotel room that I stay in Mexico City on the way to the Church in Chiapas.

The Mountain Lion on the upper left is a sculpture found in Mexico City

The Catholic Church on the right is in San Cristobal de las Casas a city high in the mountains of Chiapas.

And last the dog was running across the front of the Church that I'm helping build in Chiapas. I go there every other month to preach while a pastor is found for that congregation.

I placed them all together and in a way it reminds me of Mexico every time I see it.

Mine is a real photo I took of myself last Summer. Honest  ;)

But if I was a character on the Simpsons, that's what I'd look like. From the Simpson's The Movie website, sponsored by Burger King (if I remember right) you can make yourself into a cartoon character, using a real photo.

Yes!  We met on MostPhotos ... and now i'm moving to Seattle to live with him, in a month! Who says long-distance things don't work? Between the PM's and the IM's and the same cellphone carrier, we're always together! And I've been to Seattle twice and he's been here once... its SO awesome to be with somebody who is also a stock photographer!  * happy dance *
