Incomplete Self byTinyBeauregard

This one was just fun. And cool. And the fact that the printed image (what we see) was less of herself than the negative (what's really there) was a nice metaphor for how we often see ourselves vs. how we truly are.

What funky image can you create of yourself that speaks to

Cinderelly, Cinderelly from midnighteskye

I was once as guilty as they come when it came to hiding  behind drab, mousy, baggy clothing. For years after I gained weight I kept only tans, blacks and grays in my wardrobe...maybe an occasional pair of blue jeans. I wanted to attract no attention. Color, especially bold color,

In her element: Snowface, from Toni

I loved this the moment I saw it, and while Toni and I aren't eligible for monthly photo prizes for our own photos (obviously!) I wanted to showcase it, anyway. There is little more beautiful than the happiness obvious on our faces when we're truly engaged and in our

Want Coffee? by Trinaaj

Who, us? Absolutely! We loved the this image, and not just because of our Pavlovian response to invitations involving coffee. How's this for a cool idea: when Trina (above) moved back to Adelaide, South Australia, she decided to call one person a week to meet with her for

Fun with my honey, from Kelle Sparta

I loved the contrast of this-is-a-serious-portrait background and clothing against the absolutely infectious, laugh-out-loud silliness in this photo. The palpable comfort and closeness between Kelle and her man makes me smile.

So what about you? What are you going to show us about how you're really living this

Self Portrait by Apple Green Amy

No post-turkey-day cooking photos landed in the FGG Girls group this week, but there's a bunch of great new sassy images there, including this self portrait. I love the color pop in the eyes, lips, and hair - and the "up to something" 'tude. That's

Better to burn out than fade away, by JamieBates

No cooking photos uploaded to the FGG Girls group this week, but lots of other good stuff - and I laughed out loud when I saw this one, we love it!

Each week we select one photo from our Flick group as the official FGG
