flattery

I’m going to assume that I don’t have to explain social networking and Facebook to you…and seeing as you’re likely just me re-reading this later, then of course I don’t.

I’m also going to assume that I don’t need to explain profile pics to you, because even if you are somehow not me and, even rarer, not on Facebook, you certainly are aware of Myspace or even *shudder* Friendster.

What I’m not going to assume is that you know that I consider myself an a mature photographer. So much so, in fact, that I have a little studio set up in my apartment and have booked a number of photoshoots with model/actress friends and/or rock stars. Being my friends, I don’t get paid…but the thought is that the shots will work in my eventual portfolio so that one day I WILL get paid.

At any rate, these shoots being my friends I’m also friends on Facebook, and, I get a somewhat obscene amount of pride at seeing my pics, the ones I took, being used as their profile pics. I mean I took that! And they think they look so good in the picture that they want everyone else to see them that way, too! To me, that’s a very understated and subconscious form of flattery. Thanks.

My record for most active profile pics at one time is 5…which to me is kinda cool.
