Posted:Ok, so for those of you who don't know me, I'm Mike and I've been active on this site since 2001. I'm also a pediatrician and I'm currently in training to become an adolescent medicine specialist.

I'm doing a talk on neurodevelopment in teenagers, or how the brain develops during the teenage years. I'm presenting this information to a group of pediatricians, some of them rather stodgy in their views.

I want to present adolescence as a time when creativity develops and when some of the "nuttier" behaviors for which teenagers are famous may manifest. I want to present these behaviors as normative, which is to say that they are normal, healthy, and probably lead teenagers to becoming well-adjusted adults. I also want to get pediatricians to start seeing teenagers in a positive light for the energy and creativity that they have, rather than simply rolling their eyes at a mohawk and immediately assuming that the kid uses drugs and is having unprotected intercourse.

I also can't just use your images without permission. So if you are between the ages of 13 and 20 and you have some pictures of yourself with a crazy hairstyle, or engaging in generalized nuttiness...or if you have a picture of a good drawing or painting you did, can you please let me know, post it to your gallery or something?

I will use no identifying information in the talk and the talk is strictly educational (neither I nor anyone else makes any money from the talk). The images will remain your property. Basically, it's the grown-up version of a school presentation and I need some visual aids.

Any volunteers?

Posted:I have some great photos showing normal day-to-day activities for teenagers, including what happens if you clip a driza-bone to a horse riding helmet (one having male clips the other having female clips), and what happens when you have a bunch of teenagers, black walls and lots of bright coloured paint... I have so many photos of teenage tom-foolery lying around (thanks to venturers) but none of them are of me, and I don't think I should be sending you photos of other people without their knowledge

In giving love there is an equal grace.
Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."
