Why did you change your avatar?

Some might have noticed that I changed my avatar lately. Reason being, pilgrims that met me here in Santiago started to say "Your hair is a bit whiter than in your avatar". So I changed it, to be more up to date with reality ;-)

What was your reason to change your avatar (if you did so)? BC SY

Learned a new English word today, but my AVATAR is still from 2011 walking Via de la Plata. Guess the picture from Salamanca was why I changed my avatar then.

I was going to compliment you on your new avatar. You look lovely.😊

It's such a lovely photo, kitten and all!

I've changed mine a couple of times for no particular reason. 'Just because.' Now I'm back to the original, which I like because it's more about the camino than about me.

Sybil, your hair does not reflect who you are inside! Our hair might be getting whiter, but there is a rainbow inside!

My avatar is the fob of the only souvenir I purchased in Santiago, a key chain. I had wanted to be sure that I got a fob with peregrino, shell and arrow all pointing in the same direction and I had spent too much of my scarce time in the city selecting this particular one: with arrow and shell both pointing ‘west.’ It was only after I got home that I realized - to my great dismay - that my little peregrino was walking in the opposite direction. I was crestfallen. Later, somewhere on this forum, I mentioned my disappointment about this, and it was @wayfarer (please forgive me if someone else should be credited here, but I don’t think so) who suggested that my little peregrino had already reached Santiago and was now heading home. I felt so much better. 😊😊😊

That’s why I changed my avatar.

"Your hair is whiter...." How rude! It's like people telling me that I'm bald whereas I'm "starting to go a little thin on top".

Oh! I thought you wear a cap on your atavar photo to cover up your baldness(?). No need to cover up getting a little thin on top! Ah, the sun! Even with thick hair you need to cover your head!

How rude can you get! Lol!
