Lot of interesting avatars.
Anyone want to share what, who, why or when?

My avatar is my own amiable countenance. My wife took the picture a few years ago at Erddig Hall car park - Wrexham just after enjoying the Victorian weekend that they used to hold there but sadly no longer do.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

My avatar is a picture of me with copious graphical effects added. Lord knows what I had been drinking at the time since I can't for the life of me remember how to reproduce the effect.

My first junk golem (made with prompting from a contest), the Hexapod. I had no idea how much fun it would be, and have made several other golem junk babies since then.

You can't tell anyone.  I was jumping on a trampoline.  I have jumped on trampolines since I was a little kid, but never with a rocket pack and cowboy boots.  There are also shots with me wearing a helmet. Don't try it at home. Took a lot of takes to get a few that worked.  My wife's camera at the time was very slow and she kept missing the shot.

The old brass version of the Ammunition Examiner's arm badge.
Approved for wear - if you qualified - but never issued, so the old guys would make their own by cutting apart Engineer and Artillery badges.
So it's a version of myself from another era, a time when brass trumped plastic, and if something didn't exist makers just went and made it.

Currently, it's me about two weeks ago when I took the Wife, younger daughter and her beau out to the theatre for a perfomance of "Peter and the Starcatcher." Fun show that fits with our aesthetic pretty well.

120 years later you still look as pretty.
