different beautiful: maria

"Self" by Maria Melee

"I am different. Spotted, vaguely mustached. Prone to inventing words and looking decidedly lost in self-portraits. I am beautiful."

~ Maria

I've started a Flickr group called "The Beauty of Different," where photographers (amateur and pro alike) are invited to publish self-portraits of themselves, and declare what their beautiful different is.  If you have a Flickr account, I invite you to join and share your beautiful different.  And feel free to add your website, Facebook or Twitter accounts on your submission -- I'd love to give you some link love if I feature you here on the site.
