    Instead of posting a new one of these for every non-important occasion, I’m making this so I can just add to it as needed.

    Today I went to finalize my shots for ‘5 is Right Out’, and after, decided to look for ‘Color Popping Naturally’. I saw something that caught my eye so I pulled over and parked, then walked across the street to check out the shot (didn’t work out unfortunately).

    Got back to my truck–my grey truck–and found this stuck on the back window:

    The irony was not lost, so I took the picture.

    //won’t be using for the contest, got more interesting shots to consider.

    so were they warning you about your parking or taking pictures?

    About parking. Though it wasn’t clearly posted (which is in violation of Tempe’s ordinance, I happen to know, as it’s a big deal in the ASU area and I’m there a lot with my camera), apparently the lot–over a mile from ASU– was restricted to customers only. So despite the lot being empty save like 10 cars (50 or so spots), some asstard decided to slap me with the sticker. I hope they appreciated that I took some photos of it before driving off.

    This is the 30,000th image I’ve taken with the Rebel xTi. And some guy picks his nose. 😕

    Can’t say I don’t get much use from the camera, eh?

    PF Chang’s Rock and Roll Marathon 2011. I took 453 images. The process of reviewing them shall be a marathon itself, of sorts. Hopefully, there will be something I can use in ‘Sports’, an upcoming theme.

    Nice! The trees (pine needles?) are a great touch.

    Yep, pine. Took an f/stop of ’40’ to get them, but the tree was still too close at 50 or so feet to capture them clearly, with the moon. Oh, well. There’s always another full moon next month (or tomorrow, I’ll still be awake, there’s other pines on the other side of the complex.)

    Better…

    Crisper at 640x resolution, I’d never noticed that this forum enlarges the images beyond that–too bad fark.com doesn’t let you go bigger!

    And why is that…it’s not like the bandwidth isn’t there anymore…

    1) fark doesn’t as a favor to the many still on dialup.

    2) to speed page loads.

    3) to have more room to sell ads.

    i report, you decide.

    I’d settle for 800 width, same height, and that wouldn’t take much more space, curious (esp. with ‘save for web’ images.)

    Fark’s good about no popups and flashy ads.

    There’s still dialup available? Who knew.

    //there’s still land-lines available? Who knew?

    Drew is good about not trying to get uber rich. and he’s fortunate that loyal folks will still work for free as mods. if he ever does an IPO expect the site to tank in the following year.

    the dialup info is/was gleaned from reading the PSAEF regularly. not only are there photoshop regulars on dialup but far more of the country has crappy internet than one would expect in 2010. especially after all the hoopla about the roll out of fiber and the other giveaways to the big ISPs.

    as far as landlines go i could switch to cable internet and cell phone only but after katrina i had phone service before cable came back. and a landline with a corded phone has proved more reliable than anything else during hurricanes for me.
