Let's put this to a vote



Calvin insisted on fixing my hair and taking this photo of me last night. I told him I'd blog it and maybe even consider using it as my new profile photo if I felt okay with it. But, being a woman and all, I don't know if I'm okay with it. I keep looking in the mirror hoping to see the face that was there when I was half my age. Instead I see my father's face, with blue eyes instead of brown. (He must have been heterozygous brown)

Oh, and I see evidence now that the little hummingbird that should have been on my earring was lost before this picture was taken. Dang it, those were good earrings and I have way too many single earrings already!

So is this the new profile pic? Let me know what you think. :)

Calvin did a great job and I vote for this lovely view as the new profile pic.

Larry said...

I like it better than your current profile pick.-It is a more open and friendly picture.

Hi Deb,
Calvin did a good job and I think you should use it on your profile too. I like the outdoor background and how happy you look.

I love it.

Rurality said...

They are both nice. I kind of like the original one better, but mainly because it of that similar picture of your daughter (when she had the same expression). That was so cute! :)

Like Larry said - what I notice is the openness. It seems to suit the Deb I know from these pages. And there is nothing wrong with the hint of wisdom there, either! ;)

Good job Calvin! I vote NEW!! It is an open and joyful expression. Very pretty (even missing the hummingbird)!

Deb said...

Thanks all for your input. I do agree it reflects an openness, one which I am hopefully cultivating in real life. I've been turned inward for so long, and I'm just now finding the resources to turn outward. Amd it looks somewhat joyful.

Rurality- I was struck by that time, I think it was when Starflower got her cast on, and I saw the two images side by side. I'll try to get her with this expression!

I think it is a fine pic, but we really should have been given some other choices too.

Maybe you should put up a new profile pic each month!

Deb said...

Pablo- I've been really self conscious about pictures of me as of late, but I'm coming out of it. Posting this one was a big step.

Jennifer said...

Oh yeah. I love the new profile. You look great!

Jane said...

You're beautiful

Deb said...

Thanks, Jennifer and Jane. :)
