This is really cool.  Love the expression, love the presentation, just a bit confused by the gang sign you are throwing :),

Greg's comment really cracked me up!  
'Sup dude?

Oh Chelle...I SO love this!   I've been playing around w/ my camera myself over here.   I just love the expression you captured ...and how you're peeking through...as you're slowly exposing allowing others to get to know you better.

Beautiful...the photo, and you.

Much love,
Nance

GREAT photo, Chelle!!
I took a bunch once of myself that I really liked, too. It is fun experimenting
that way & seeing YOURSELF in different ways, isn't it?
Sometime I'll show you mine!
