My October profile picture update challenge

My October profile picture update challenge - this is an entry in the challenge by Paul Henderson

 

The old picture was taken at the Hawaii Life office in Wailea a couple of years ago. Winston came over with a professional camera and used a white screen background so many of us Hawaii Lifers could get a nice head shot.  The plan was to have some consistency on their website, and have a lot of the pictures look casual and fun, yet similar.  It was a good idea and I thought it was going to happen again each year, but apparently not.

The new picture is just a selfie snapped on the lanai with my iPhone.  The palm trees reflected in the window behind me adds a nice tropical touch.  Of course I'm hiding behind my sunglasses, but that's how it is when you live in Hawaii... stay out of the sun!

I think I like the first one better and it's only 2 1/2 years old so might switch back to it. The plain background is less distracting and the quality is better. Any feedback?

They are both lovely, but I think sunglasses hide your warmth and the mischievous look in your eyes!

Georgie,

Sunglasses hide the windows to the soul.  Personally, when I see a photo with sunglasses, it is a signal that there is something hidden.  A

BTW - You can always superimpose your photo over a tropical background :-)

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - Love the new updated photo of you. Pay no attention to some comments about sunglasses. I have transient eye glasses too and I know you're not hiding anything. I was told the same thing and it pisses me off. 

You're a lovely lady with nothing to hide, and neither do I.

I think you should take another selfie with some palm trees or Hawaiin flowers in the background

Georgie, you still look like YOU, and I think a tropical background would be good too.
