Default February Challenge - Creative Self Portrait

My goodness. I'm honored. The honor is as much the beautiful place I live in as mine. I propose for this month "Creative Self Portraits." Who you are, what you do, your interests or whatever else you can come up with that is you, taken by you, hand held, tripod or ???. It doesn't have to show your face, but it can. I have quite a few ideas I want to try. Again, thanks for the votes and good shooting.

My first thought when I saw the topic was "no way" but then I saw your "doesn't have to show your face" and then I thought it would be a fun topic. I've taken a number of pictures in the past that fit this topic perfectly, now I'll have to think of something new. But that's OK as time has moved on, so have some of my hobbies.

Actually, that icon would be a perfect entry.

Here is my REVISED entry. Since it is "Creative" self portrait I decided to put myself in my current environment.

Ira, that's a cool shot. The reduced version in your avatar doesn't do the picture justice.

I had an idea, but there's no way I can do it. Make a snow angel. If I got down on the ground to do it, I'd never get up again. They'd find me in the spring when the snow thaws!

Pboerger - Congratulations on a well-deserved win in January, and a very interesting topic for February!

Patty - Snow Angels sounds like a great idea - just take along a cell phone in case you need us to come rescue you!

Ira - That does look a lot better full size.
