Self Portrait

Ranga has passed on this brilliant little tag - for a change it involves a bit of photoshoppery rather than writing. The task is to make a slide with abstract images which describe you.

Here is my effort

The yin-yang is central to my life. It not only represents my zodiac sign, the Gemini but also reflects my own character a bit of good mixed with the bad and the other way around. The moon inside is a representation of my name as well as that of the moonlight that shines in my life to show me the way. The gear shifter denotes my passion for driving and further the quest to explore the unknown, while the speedometer is the way I love to live and showcases my triple passions of my life - cars, trains and planes. I've used grayscale to convey that life is not always in black & white and the same color combo denotes my passion for photography as well.

Yin-yang, eh? One of my favourite symbols - that and your use of grayscale complement each other beautifully :).
