See, I had this silly idea. (Well, most of my ideas are silly, and I have quite a few, but this one's really silly.) I thought it might be fun for me to do something fun for you guys. Well, if you guys like the idea, that is. I thought we might add a sort of "family album" to the pond of all of us (those who are interested, that is). Any reader who wants to be included can send me a picture of themselves and I'll manipulate it some like I do for most of my Untitled images, then put them in this album. And you can display your manipulated picture on your site, too, of course, if you like.
Just so long as you understand that I don't think my "processing" (manipulating, whatever) is so great or that I'm so great or anything--I just thought that this might be a fun thing to do is all. You can be anonymous, or with your name or alias, or with your name/alias and a link to your site. However you feel comfortable. I know it's a bit personal--photos of yourselves--but I really think it would be a lot of fun. We can call this "Pond Dwellers" or the "Secret Pond Family Album" or whatever seems the most fun. Well, even if you can't/don't want to send a photo, please let me know what you think of the idea. Send me your photos or comments, please.
Oh, another thing just occurred to me. Some might possibly think I'm trying to assemble a "glory wall" of "fans"--oh, definitely not! For one thing, I don't actually consider readers to be "fans". The way I feel about it, some of you read once in awhile, some of you read the entire journal, but all of you are just sharing this with me. We're sort of friends, just sharing with each other, and that is why I want to do this. Because I feel close to you. And the only thing being in this album indicates, to me, is that you either thought this would be fun or were kind enough to humor me since you know I love doing these silly things.
Anyway, let me know if you want to be anonymous, let me know if you want me to show you your pictures before I put them up (so far I've been ok'ing them with people first, anyway), and let me know if you'd only like your "after" (the manipulated version) picture to be shown.
