We have our own unique profile pictures here in mylot. Some didn't change from the time they created an account. Some change after some time or very long time. There are real faces and there are not. Some don't show their complete face and hiding in other forms. Some have avatars of nature. One thing that is almost common to every avatars, is the smile. The story behind my avatar was this. It was our job placement week during that time. I am just standing and talking to some of my friends. We are gathered together in one place and having fun talks like what if one of us become a father right after graduation haha. After a while, i heard a shout calling my name. It was my professor who happened also to be a photographer. He made a sign that says he will take a picture of me so I posed. And that's it. He tagged me in facebook after that and i liked the result. Though my skin impurities are visible, but nevermind that, it's part of my life ever since LOL. You? What is the story behind your avatar/profile picture?

My picture here I have had for a while. I have only changed it once or twice since being here. The picture was taken after my younger sister's wedding. I liked this picture of me so I decided to use it here. =)

I got tired of the doll picture that I used for almost three(?) months so I changed it a few days ago into my own selfie wearing sunglasses that was given to me by a friend. I am not sure if I had already used this avatar before as it was taken many months ago... I might change it again soon...

I put pictures of the late Boris Karloff since I enjoyed his work as host of the show "Thriller" and the avatars of Wordgirl are because her show even though it is aimed at kids is funny.

That is a nice story @trivia79 . I think a smiling face is always a good thing because it invites positive vibes and makes other feel that you are friendly and approachable. My avatar was a picture of me running on the suspended bridge in the midst of the greenery Jurong Bird Park in Singapore. It was my first international trip so I am overwhelmed by all the experiences I am having outside of the country. I was very happy indeed. My boyfriend was with me and he was the one taking shots of my every move.
