Q: I am curious about more information on the RULES

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Beautiful was something I never felt when I was growing up. I hated the fact that I was "different" and the fact that I stood out. My white hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, pale skin and violet eyes setting me "apart" from everyone else.

Ny pale skin and hair caused by a genetic condition called albinism. Not until my early/mid 20's did I began to accept and embrace my uniqueness.

Personal Quote

Life would be pretty boring if we all walked, talked, acted and looked the same.

    You are absolutely gorgeous! I'm so jealous of your hair! I have extremely pale skin, but my hair is a weird bronze colour and doesn't match at all! I've always loved really light blonde/white hair though.

    omg youre albino??
    albino people are soooo pretty.
    well i think so at least.
    i just found this looking around your stream, and i saw that it was a self portrait and i was like :O no way that's so cool.
    i'd have loved to see this as a coloured photo. but seriously. you shouldn't feel ashamed for being albino.. you're gorgeous.

    To Elizabeth,
    Thanks so much for the comment on my photo and myself. Yes I am albino but no I am not ashamed at all.
    I choose to go with BW as I like the feel and emotion it gives. It was an artistic choice which I stand behind. And besides that this was taken when I had not a clue about camera settings and the color was horrible. There was no real fixing the color.
    Anyways just a personal preference/choice. =)

    Absolutely gorgeous. You truly are an angel on earth. I found this picture looking for a "white hair angel" in google, and although this wasn't exactly what I was going for, I'm glad I found you, you are my inspiration for the day. So, thank you for being beautiful.

    My God, you are beautiful!!! If I wasn't 3 times your age I'd ask you out. I've been good friends with Johnny & Edgar Winter, 2 musical heroes of mine, for a long time so albinism is nothing new to me and I think it looks COOL! If everyone in the world had hair like yours there wouldn't be any more wars! Best to you always, beautiful young angel and may you have a long and very happy life filled with good friends and loved ones. For more info on me just go to:

    It's weird in that I stumbled upon your picture while googling about something else. I think you're absolutely gorgeous, girl. I wanted your colour hair my whole life, as I hated being a redhead with pale skin. I have to watch the sun being red, use lots of sunscreen, carefully watch my skin for any signs of abnormal moles (skin cancer is high) and pretty well hated being different in that regards. By nature, redheads have their own reputations anyway:) If I could, I still wouldn't mind having your hair colour, as I think it's absolutely beautiful. No, it's not easy being different. I've since accepted that I will always be a redhead, and that I will always be pale. And I'm learning to be proud that I'm pale, too. Be proud of who you are, girl, you are beautiful.

    You make me even more proud being albino! I have learned to love being different, and you are a perfect example of how beautiful we are!
    Remember - people destroy their hair by trying to have our haircolour, and they pay lots of money as well... we have it for free! I know it can be hard growing up, but you've clearly made it through by showing the world what you look like! My greatest wish would be to be photographed like that and I would frame it and look at it and remember who I am when it´s hard... lots of love...

    Nice SP and I think the contrast of the black is great and really shows off your hair and skin.
