Easy question - my picture

October 07, 2009, 10:20 PM posted in General Discussion

Can someone tell me how to say "my picture",  meaning the person in the picture is me, not meaning that the OWNER of the picture is me. Or are they said the same way, as in English?

We usually use 照片上的这个人是我。(The man in the picture is me.)

To avoid different meanings, we usually don't use 我的照片 simply。

For instance,if you have some photos developed in a store and another person takes your photos by mistake, you may say "这是我的照片". Here, you mean these photos belong to you.

If you invite your friends to visit your room and show them some photos of you, you may say "这是我的照片". Here, you mean the person in the photo is you.
