I rise to the challenge! Clearly, a shoehorn is the one thing capable of meeting such an oxymoronic, self-denying challenge topic.

A self-portrait. I may use this as my avatar after this challenge is done.

Post-challenge notes: Well, this dropped quite a bit during rollover. For most of the week it was almost even with my "Warm Colors" entry, which I thought was pretty good. this one was fairly pathetic, however, so I am glad it did not outdo the one I was proud of.

BTW, please meet my daughter, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' hey_you_3000 who has gotten herself beat up in two challenges now.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/667417.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/667417.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Notice the family resemblance?

In hindsight, I should have titled this: "If the shoehorn fits wear it"

I can't hear the horn, I certainly don't see a shoe, and who is MC? However, I think I see the picture of the Virgin Mary in that metal piece. Go sell it on ebay.

An obvious case of trying to use the title to make your photo work. DNMC :)
