Mostly in Mylot, i think we are able to recognize each other by our avatar's rather than our names..so I am just interested to know about them as to why u like them and why u selected them to be your avatar, any special memories about them...please do share (not only me, i hope it can help many others to know you better and get close to each other) My avatar shows my 3-year-old daughter standing in the terrace during the sunset, this picture was taken by my hubby, it just came out so well unexpectedly, so i like this picture very much and thought to hav this as my avatar

I created my avatar in photoshop. I love faries and flowers and once I made it it turned out so well i kept it. I had a different one that I had done but it wasn't very clear so i changed it to this one. I am very happy with it and don't think i will change it for a while to come at least. I have another one I made just not sure how it would look as an avatar lol.

that picture is so lovely, just wud like to tell u one thing that i felt when seeing the picture, u must have given a brighter color to the angel instead of the purple, it must have really made the picture even more clear at a glance

Purple happens to be my favorite color thats why I chose it. and when i was making it any other color I used seemed to make the fairy melt more into the flower and made it harder to see her. looking at a bigger picture of her makes it a lot easier to see the contrast.

Hello,sharay!My avatar is about a spring picnic in this April.All of our classmates get together to visit a beautiful mountain nearby,which called "qi pan shan". "qi pan" means chessboard while "shan" means mountain.There is a big stone on the top of the mountain,and looks like a chessboard.Maybe thousands years ago some immortal were sitting there and play chess.lol.It is so high that we can hardly up to it. This avatar was taken by my friend when we have a rest after a long happy journey.There are two girls and a hand with "v" gesture.Haha,guess who am i?^^Well,the left one...guess it out? We both wear a hat and was looking at something.the right one is my best friend.We get up together everyday,eat together,have classes together,sleep together....hehe...we are perfect partner.and the hand,you know its owner?Wow,also my lovely friend.She is funny and intersting!Everyday she can make a lot of funny things and we often laugh together.^^You can see it though the guesture!Haha...And i have this as my avatar to memory my friend and the cheer journey!Happy everyday!o(n_n)o...

my avatar is my siamese cat Dolce. i got her from a rescue about 3 years ago and she definitely has a mind of her own. The picture I have up is her sitting in front of a bunch of christmas presents last year. Her favorite holiday is Christmas, I have little plastic Christmas ornaments that go on the bottom of the tree, that are specifically plastic because she plays with them.

Good topic. It was on my mind. My avatar is a picture from about a month or two ago of myself getting a tattoo on my arm of 3 goldfish. About 1/3-Sleeve. It's just a good time in my life and I like the picture because I'm in "the zone." haha

Hello sharay, That's a very interesting story about your avatar. It like from the ET movies where the aliens releases their hostages. There are usually good stories from someone avatar and it's nice to know once you it. My avatar is the "Incredible Hulk". I downloaded this avatar when the first movie of the Hulk came out. It's been setting on my computer and when I joined mylot, I notice the Hulk image and decided to used it. I am not the Hulk and I am more like Bruce Banner the other side of the Hulk in real life. It's just mean that I can be like the Hulk if I want to be, but I prefer to be Bruce in real life.

I love pictures of kids and I find your avatar very cute. As for me I have changed my avatar twice because I just feel like doing so at this point. My first was a photo of my husband gazing at the shoreline. The picture depicts first my love for my husband and on the other side of it ... my love for the sea and its mystery. Now, I decided to change it with a picture of a white lily flower, with my little photo at its midst. Lily is my favorite flower and it very well resembles myself and personality. Soon perhaps I would be changing again depending on my mood. Happy posting

My avatar is a picture of myself. It is one of the best ones out of several that I took. A friend of mine suggested that I take a picture of myself smilling. Well, that did not go as planned because I just looked awful when i'm smilling.

My avatar is my picture during my 18th birthday. I was with a friend but I cut her and saved another one. I don't really remember why I chose this pic as my avatar here but I guess this was the best pic that I have last year when I joined here, I'm all smiles and everything and that was a happy day/night for me. Haven't thought of changing it soon. Maybe when I have a much better picture to replace my current avatar.

Your avatar is just so cool! And i'm sure that your daughter must very cute and you are one of the happiest moms on this planet! About my avatar, it's just my friend's work. He drew this with Microsoft Painter, a little incredible, isn't it? He's just that kind of guy who will aways give you all sorts of surprises. Before he gave this avatar, he told he was in the final round of interview of Microsoft China, and the staff of MS China asked him if he can go to their office and start then, he answered animation is my career i'm here only to see if MS is difficult to get in now i have the answer and i got to go. Wooo, i drifted a little bit too far away. Just have a nice day!

My avatar is relevant to my animal totem. I have three animal totems; the Raven, the Crow and the Dove. My avatar depicts the Raven Moon with a Raven on the wing. My name, Darkwing comes from this as well, as the bird is black in colour, and therefore has dark wings. Brightest Blessings.

That's really cool. My avatar was personally made by me. I used to have a picture of myself and my boyfriend before this one and I decided to change it one day and make it a little more sweet and mysterious. I opened up Photoshop and did a small graphic avatar stating "Love" because of how much we love each other and using our initials with the picture in black and white lightly in the background. I put my watermark in red to match the heart which I made from a preset shape and did a small border with the paint brush tool. I find I like the look much better than just the plain picture I had before. That is basically my avatar

Mine is a photo I took while in Chicago around Christmas time a few years ago. It is of a streetlamp in the snow. For some reason, I just like taking pictures of lights haha. I really don't know why I use this photo for my avatar, I use it on other sites too. I probably have other pictures that would look better small. I should probably consider changing it.

yeah you can change it to a more clear picture i think..of beatiful natural lights when the sun rises or sets and in dawn and dusk, etc
