Ideas for an avatar

Hey, if you guys haven't noticed, I don't have an avatar yet. Reason being, I don't have a clue what to use.

I'm going to sleep on this, but in the meantime, anybody want to put up some ideas?

Thanks in advance

Well, I'd say you should pick something meaningful to you. Another hobby maybe, a pet, your favorite lens etc....

Alvin, just look into your photo collection and pick something that will still be obvious after shrinking the image down to a pea size. Change it from time to time til you are satisfied

Unless you are really into something, anything that is simple and unique will do.

It is something people will remember you of by seeing your avitar. Kind of like self imposed trademark or branding in the animal farm

How about your face in a mirror with your favorite camera. Not very original but definitely 'you'.

I use a photo of my hero, Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan, a pioneer aviator who back in the '30s took off from New York to fly to California and, instead, landed in Ireland. He told authorities he "had been following the wrong end of the magnetic needle."

Mine is a not-very-good picture of my dog. He was yawning, but I like to think he looks like he is laughing. Other people take the expression as snarling...

I think croping your son out of that photo where he is skating might be an idea

otherwise, what are you passionate about?
as you can see, my passion isn't spelling

cheers

I didn't know you could get all the SOX on an aviator Pat?

Not all, most likely narrow it down to one or two spots in the old Park. Fenway Park that is for everyone outside the USA. The Red Sox are a baseball team. I wish I could get them all together to pose for a team shot for me. not likely. I will give it a try on Patriots day April 16th.

Here I was thinking of the Chicago White Sox (Major League Baseball Team), and then I realized, whoops! PAT IS IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT CITY/STATE!

Thanks for all the suggestions, people! I am still chewing on ideas, but at least now I have narrowed it down.

I'd like to thank all of you guys again for helping me out.

I've chosen a picture of my son and wife - the two who are most important to me. Hopefully later, I can have a pic with all three of us - I just haven't found one yet that can be made small enough and be seen clearly.

Pat - I like that one. I've only seen the field in Fenway, never the entrance.
