What's the story behind your profile picture?

Why did you choose your current profile picture? It may be not your own pic but everyone has got some reason, story or fascination on choosing a particular picture as their avi.

My current avi was taken a year ago. It was last month of monsoon season and that particularly day , the climate was chilled and very cloudy. The climate did affect my mood. It was afternoon time and so i called my friend and asked him if we can try and take some nice snapshots with his newly bought canon SLR ( I am a photography freak lol). Hence me and my friend then decided to go up in his building terrace and started taking random clicks of clouds, birds and greeny mountain.
I was just standing near the wall of terrace and enjoying fresh cool breeze while he was excitingly clicking random pics. He then just turned his camera towards me and asked for a pose and i said " Hey NO NOT today haha. I ain't looking good in this avatar.
Then he said okay and turned his cam towards a hammered nail on surface of the wall ( LOL i don't know where it came from). I asked him why is he clicking that thing lol? He said that he wants to try close up with his cam) then placed his cam on surface and focusing his lens on nail.
While he was clicking , i brought my head suddenly in front of his cam and there it was !! HAHA.
It was interesting to me because that click looks like it was taken purposely while it was an accidental click.
That click actually represented my mood perfectly...

  • My picture is black and white for privacy reasons. I've been getting weird messages lately and I rather not have a creeper looking at me. That being said, I still want a picture that represents me without fully giving my identity away.
    Plus I answer a lot of personal and intimate questions without going anon.

    • Personally for me people who post in black and white are still very reconizable.

      If i had to guess you have very dark brown hair and a brown skin.

    • Ah do you think you will hide your beauty behind this Black and white edit? Lol
      We guys have super talent in recognising beauty. Even eyes are enough lol
      I can still clearly see how beautiful you are lol
      But i hope i am not one of those creeper in your list. :)

  • A friend of mine wanted to take some practice shots before he started his photography course so I said I'd help out, it was all a bit rushed and slap dash in his hallway lol but I got a free picture! :)

      I wouldn't be able to be with the right girl if I stayed with her.
      Funny thing was at my grandmothers bday party which was a week before I left her, everyone new that I was leaving her at any moment, she was the only one that didn't have a clue,,, she still got upset about something at that event I can't remember what but it was something so not worth the aggro over lol.

    • Yes, we've been together about 7 months and live together, but have been friends [sometimes with benefits] for over six years before getting together.

  • Although I am very conservative and serious at times, I have
    a sexy side to myself.
    So this profile photo reflects the type of sexual, sexy person I can be.

  • Mine sort of sums up the other side of my personality. Usually I have either have a smile on my face or I'm laughing.

    But then there's also that other side of me. The one that occasionally looks at people like this:

    media2.giphy.com/media/aSFcYSXw7p0DC/200_s.gif

    A. K. A. the look of disapproval :)
    There's a lot of things I see online that put the look of disapproval on my face. Like half of the questions asked on GAG. So I figured having the look of disapproval as my profile picture would be fairly relevant as to what my face looks like while I'm scrolling through the questions on here.

  • It's me and I don't mind people seeing how I look.

    I originally had 4 other ones 5 all together then GAG changed and I decided to keep this one since it was the most recent.

    I put in black and white off of an app called PicArt... black and white just seems cooler/mysterious.

    And my phone is it covering up my face to make it look more mysterious than it already is... Lol jk the truth us I just suck at taking selfies xD

  • I just thought I looked good for once hahaha but it's one of my prom pictures that was taken this past April so I was all dressed up and had one a lot of makeup and it was my favorite one of myself. I've thought about changing it to one of my softball pictures but I don't know I think I just want to change it to one where my hair is down but it's not that big of a deal! haha

  • The short reason, it sort of looks like me.

    The longer version, the person in the picture
    is making a greeting motion (hand on hat)
    whilst having his back turned towards us

    sort of like he's leaving you behind
    but beckoning you to follow, if you can.

    I really like that, mystical feeling ^.~

  • I was bored of seeing my old pic, and all of my regular pics are older and have a much chunkier version of myself so I decided to just take a quick one on my own.

    The orange is there because I LOVE food, and I just bought it from a local farm stand that's right down the street from me, all of which I was very excited about it in that moment.

  • i'm a ride or die fan of Resident Evil. i been playing and collecting those games since i was 12. and of course Wesker was my favorite villain. he was to Resident Evil what Darth Vader has been to Star Wars. i love how he plots everything from beginning to end and all the chaos within the series all trace back to him. plus i like his powers, its amazing how quick and invincible he is

  • I get a kick out of those "last moments of life" photoshopped pictures. Like the guy on the WTC observation deck on 9/11, or the divers getting their picture taken underwater with a shark right behind them. Right now I'm into bears/bear cubs and thought this picture was funny, even if it's a bad photoshop.

    The main reason to use an image to begin with is because these site's avatars are boring. Plus I don't even have any images of myself on the computer... or even a photo within 2 years for that matter :-\
