I take pictures of myself for one reason only they mark joyous occassions with my family and friends fat or not it's proof and memories in pictures of the good times. I just don't post them on line. Although a pic of me ended up on facebook after I hosted a baby shower last week, sometimes we have no control over where the pictures end up at, I didn't ask the young lady to take it down because I didn't want to still her joy. I'm not happy with my apperance most of the time, but that means I need to work on me mentally and physically. Don't let your apperance keep you out of the happy photos.
Keep up the great work.
