The Mac book Self Portirat
« on: February 24, 2009, 04:28:48 AM »

I know i'm a newbie and all, but i wanted to see if i couldn't get a thread going of people posting mac book or web cam self portraits.  Do your hair or your makeup, or draw on your face, light one dramatically, or cry a little, or take one right when you wake up.  Whatever, its you, how you look, in front of your computer at that moment.

I love AFP's at the end of her blogs.

here are some of my faves...

That's because the "insane" part of your Alyss character is taken straight from your real life.

 




I suppose I woulda put this under "Photos Of You", but I'm not a Mac user, and I realize you people
do things differently from the rest of us, and maybe a new thread really was called for. 
I shall refrain from judging.

Is it bad that what she said made perfect sense to me?

I think this could be slightly different to the photos of you thread? Doubt I'd ever post a webcam photo there, this seems a little more raw and real to me. I don't know, I don't usually sit in front of my computer and get dolled up for webcam photos, haha. Here is my "I just woke up" photo.



I am wearing my birthday suit.

that night at the sight of you there
beautiful and grotesque and all the rest of that bug stuff

successes! Think i've finally figured out how to use photobucket in the forum!  Apparently i was posting the wrong HTML code thing-a-ma-bob...

But i wanted to say that my photobooth on my mac book has become some sort of weird photo album that i really enjoy using to keep track of my life.  I open it up and take pictures during major life changes, or snap a picture before a frist date.  I take them after intently crying for some reason.  I have about 4 really intence crying ones... and i've realized those are about all the good crys i've had in the past 4 years, and its interesting having pictures of myself after them...  Its a really interesting way to reflect on life.  I can look through my photobooth and find a picture i took, trying to look beautiful so i could send it to my Astronaut, then not many pictuers down, i find an image with tears down my face, reminding me of the night he flew away.

I like having that stuff.  I don't know why... does anyone else?








....i'll even post one of my crying ones... I find it a personal thing to share, but i will...

I won't. Where's my 'Mac users are all 'tards' stamp?
