This is a getting to know you type thing that I thought would be fun.
Here are the (unofficial) rules:
1. the portrait can be of any part of yourself; therefore, it does not have to show your true identity! Like an ear or a hand could be a self portrait.
2. the photo must be taken by you!
3. The portrait can be rendered in whatever way you choose, ie. photoshop filters.
4. Please keep the photos to a reasonable size for those of us who have the archaic dial up (read s-l-o-w) modem.
Let the games begin! O.K. I'm going to be brave and start by posting my self-portrait for which I used the cutout filter in Photoshop.
