I find it exceedingly difficult to get self-portraits that reveal myself as I see myself. My boss asked me for a photo for the company roster, so I provided one which I know I went to a bit of effort to make a couple years ago, yellow background and all... Lousy stilted shot. I guess I'm going to need to get back onto this project too...

My avatar is pretty close, it's a crop from a group shot... me and two best friends at a weekend together. I look happy because... well... when hanging out with best friends... that's a good time for pictures.
