As a private joke (until now), I’ve diagnosed myself as afflicted with “Toulouse-Lautrec Syndrome”. As he was known for hanging out at Moulin Rouge and sketching scenes there — especially of women who caught his eye — so I compulsively photograph strikingly creative and/or attractive avatars. Some are friends, some are people whose names I knew but hadn’t met until then; most are total strangers.
As you can see, not quite all of them are beautiful women… :-P
I just cleared out a huge backlog of previously-unedited screenshots, and posted the results at Picasa. Have a look, leave a comment if you like… especially if you know any of the many whose names I didn’t remember to note.
[as to the above: second from top is Anne OToole; third is Kirsten Cinquetti; the rest are unknown]
