    Facing My Face

    I've always used either my own picture or Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, as an avatar.I never saw any reason to hide myself online, for the same reason I never wear a mask when I go out into the street.Some people opt for anonymity, usually because their entourage isn't as broad minded...

    Why would I seek to deceive you all, I am me and proud to be me, so yes everything in my pictures is me.More of me will appear as my life continues to grow and I grow with you all.Shell

    Yes It Is The Real Me - A Few Years Ago

    A few years ago when I was young (34) and active and my life was simpler. This one and the two with the pink/red cap that I used previously were taken in the summer of 1974 when my nephew and I were backpacking in the Cascades on the slopes of the dormant volcano, Glacier Peak...

    It's My Torso

    That's my torso in my avatar. It was taken just after a workout so I'm a little sweaty, and I'm also a little sunburnt from having spent the day outside.

    I would've used a picture of me but for one thing, I have begun to get interested in the X-Men. Yes, my favourite character is Wolverine, that's why he's my avatar. Plus, I don't think I've found one of me yet that looks good and I have a habit of not liking to leave things blank...

    Well, It Is a Part of the Real Me. . .

    Yes, it's definitely my foot and one of my dozen's of pairs of shoes.  Perhaps in time another photo will take this one's place.  Perhaps the curve of my neck, my legs possibly, my torso. . . who knows?  Maybe in time I'll reveal the complete me.

    Your Avatar/pic

    Is that a real pic of you? Or are you just showing all of us who you would like to be. Anonymity can be fun. it allows us to show the world who we are inside, our alter egos, even if it is unacceptable to the masses. I enjoy the stories behind the avatars. Please share yours

    The Green Fairy

        My avatar represents the real me on the inside. I care for others, and love nature, but sometimes I can't be confined to one place to long, I have the need to move. Sometimes I wish I had real wings so I can fly away to places in my dreams.

    My picture on Experience Project is really me.

    The picture was taken by my father, and I use it on here. It is from last year, but I still look the same today. I am not really skilled with pictures & computers, so I do not have any other pictures loaded on Experience Project; I do not know how to do it.
