    Hey Silv ... got a full-size version of that one?

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    I'll have to work on it... I think I have the original file on the other computer in a 'proprietary' format. Kinda busy today. I'll work on it tonight/tomorrow and upload it and post a link here when it is ready.

    Ok, the first one isn't a photo, but still funny.



    Quite a scare for your drunken friends when they open the bathroom door to see this:


    An actual guitar effect:


    A Redneck Home:


    How the hell did this happen?


    ACK!


    Texas' idea of a public restroom:




    I have another picture of a hardcore Homer Simpson fan...she got a tattoo of Homer in a very "interesting" place...I can't post here because of where the tattoo is located, but it's quite funny. PM me if you're over 18 and I'll pm you the link.

    Yes...the outdoor toilet is very cool. A little strange, but nonetheless, cool.

    I really liked the idea the 2nd picture shows...I'd love to have someone paint my bathroom floor like that..too funny.

    I actually thought this was a cartoon until I started wondering why everybody thought it was so cool. Then, I went back and still swore up and down that it was a cartoon. I guess it's real... amazing!

    Thanks all for your kind comments.

    OK, For those that want bigger views:
    Here is a 1 MB JPG

    Please don't share the file! You are welcome to print it out several times for family and friends, use it on your own local computer for a screensaver etc.; but I don't want the full size photo to be used for profit, put on websites or otherwise spread around without my permission or knowledge...

    Here is another view of the same event, looking north instead of west, a few minutes later:



    If anyone wants prints of it without having to waste ink and paper, I set up a
    CPF SPECIAL page at my CafePress shop.
    Unfortunately, the only print item either of the photos fit properly is kind of expensive, a framed print. The first photo is also on a mug that is fairly reasonably priced.

    The CPF special page is hidden from 'regular people' . The only way to get in there and get the special price is through the link above.

    That is a far side comic, except some one photo shopped the sign. It is supposed to read "Midvale school for the gifted"

    So many cool pics. Thought I'd share one of my own.



    A pic I snapped along the side of the road. The wild horses did not stay still long enough for me to get a closer shot. I originally didn’t care for the low lying clouds, but now I think its grown on me. Kind of adds a bit of atmosphere?

    Yeah, I like that one EV. Clouds CAN be a photographer's friend.

    Where is that? Wyoming? SE Montana? Northern Colorado?

    Northern Nevada just off the loneliest road in America. (HWY 50)

    Silv.... I used to live in Tucson, AZ. We had sunsets like that too. Must be the high altitude and dry air eh?

    Oh, Yeah, I drove up that road a couple of times. Wasn't quite lonely enough enough for me Why, every hour or so I passed another car, sometimes two or three an hour.

    Before I pass on from this world, what I hope to do is drive from here along all back roads up through Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Vancouver, the Yukon, up the Alaska highway to the farthest North west part of Alaska that you can drive to. Start in mid summer, then head back, timing it just perfectly to photograph all the wonderful fall colors all the way back.

    ---------------------

    I like the way the clouds evoke mood in this photo too:

    well, i haven't posted to this thread as it's taken awhile to sort though all my images and put my negatives on file...some 127,315 images, all now index and catalogued. so i thought i'd put up some a few images that people wouldn't necessicarly associate with Australia.

    Ok, there is a story behind this picture. That blue thing around his neck is the top of a trash can. He used to always get into the bathroom trash. We bought some cans that had pop up lids, which were held on by that plastic ring which would snap over the can base. There was a little plastic piece you would push and the lid would pop up. Pushing the lid back down would keep the lid closed. Well, I assume he figured how to pop the lid up, then stuck his big head in the can. I guess when he pulled his head out the ring was stuck and came off staying on his neck.

    The picture is what I found when I came home that day.

    Wow, those are great photos Orbit.

    What camera do you use? Excellent saturation, sharpness and contrast .....

    Oh, wait... you said Negatives... You shoot film; Since I only shoot digital, I guess it doesn't matter

    Great thread Mags.

    Here goes my attempt at posting a picture. I took this photo after we put out a wildland fire as evidence of the origin and cause. The poor Osprey was landing on the powerpole to enjoy his catch when he was electricuted and fell smoldering to the ground starting the fire.
