    Hola de Barcelona

    I am studying visual culture and how we construct gay identity at the Universitat de Barcelona.

    Please tell me in this forum, or in a personal email why you have chosen the main image of you for your profile that you have. What do you think the image says about you, and what do you think people see?

    No need for profound soul searching, just a simple answer would be great.

    Thank you for your time.

    Saludos icon_biggrin.gif

    Since this is a fitness site, I chose this picture since it is a full body shot and I think I look good in this picture... but mostly cuz I'm wearing my RJ muscle T.

    Since the main reason I joined RJ was to find guys intersted in playing football, I usually have one of my football pics as the default (main) image.

    The week before Valentine's day, I decided to put up a picture of me and my partner.

    I don't like a lot of things about me, but I guess I feel like that photo makes me look nice, or my back at least,

    It's a pic of me pre marathon. It shows off my personality as well as my commitment to fitness.

    its one of the more recent pix, it includes my face, i like the lighting quality (as i'd just read the first Twilight book when i took it so it was a bit of an inspiration lol), and i feel like my profile attracts more attention if i show some skin in the main pic.

    Hola de Fort Lauderdale, Estados Unidos!

    I did not wish to post a personal photo of myself, for reasons of security. And I rejected using a picture without a face, because my body is in very bad shape. Maybe with the inspiration & motivation of RealJock my body will improve, and I will someday be able to show the real me.

    I chose a Vespa scooter as my photo instead because I wanted to have an image that is important to me, and I made that my screen name, too, "el Vespa rojo."

    Saludo a usted también icon_biggrin.gif

    I chose mine because I look happy in the photo (I was very happy when it was taken) and I think that my mood shows. Also, it shows some skin but leaves a lot to the imagination.... Just a nice balance, I think.

    I chose it cuz it's the best face photo and looks interesting in grayscale ... and back and white are my colours, in my computer theme, clothing..etc..so I thought it can reflect my personal style

    Thanks for posting this acuario. I didn't realize how long it had been since I changed my profile pic. Anyway, so my new one was taken after emerging from the Atlantic Ocean last week. I love participating in charitable events, and I don't find myself particularly photogenic, so I picked a picture where hopefully the scene is interesting enough to make up for the subject. icon_neutral.gif

    I like to be silly and I like obama. Many people here are so damn serious in their profile photos.

    You guys are lame. icon_mad.gif

    But I still love you. icon_biggrin.gif

    I like a variety of pics showing various aspects of my life and personality.
    They change frequently. I get good response, so I think its a good approach.

    This is my most recent progress photo. Which reminds that I need to get more of them up.

    It is a recent pic.

    It shows me doing something that I enjoy and is related to my profile.

    It expresses that part of "Who I am," that seemed most appropriate for this site.

    It's the most recent pic of my arm. I had a different pic of my arm in the same pose before this one was made. If anyone wants to see my face they can go to my profile. I have thought about changing it to reflect some of my interests though.

    Cos I have pretty eyes icon_eek.gif


    I suppose it´s one of the "classic" profile shots and it looks OK (though actually is my almost least favorite body part)

    Also. I love Charlitos´s Just woke up face. icon_wink.gif
