Group Photo Slide Show!
This Discussion Thread is for You! Feel free to share some pictures you are proud of and want to share - they can be anything within the Guidelines on any topic or genre. Explain your picture if you can - where and when it was taken, why you took it - what camera or lens you used, it's History so to speak. There are stories in Photographs and their story is part of what makes the image special. It's nice to share pictures and get feedback and this is the place you can do that. It's a place to socialise with other members, get to know new friends and learn. So Snap happy and drag out those images and lets get a slide show going.
Who's got the chips and coke?
Walking near the campus of the University of Michigan one afternoon, I came across this telephone pole, bristling with staples, in some areas so densely packed that the wood beneath was completely obscured. It made me wonder about the countless messages that had been posted over the years. I imagined a series of announcements, advertisements, political statements, apartments for rent, job opportunities, and lost pets. The list seemed as endless as the staples.
Cool photo with it's own interesting story.
It reminds me of one of our members, Mo Godbeer. She did a series of paintings based on a wall that she would pass regularly. It was all scuffed with paint from cars who brushed along it. Paint layers that had partially chipped off and revealing previous colours... you get the picture...
It funny how inanimate objects can seem to have a life and a history of their own.
It must have been a great day. so atmospheric.
I love the tiniest bits of colour in there.
I have shared these pics with LMM before, but I thought I would share them here as well. I took these picture on a very grey and rainy day through a window. Then I played around with them in Gimp - mostly with "white balance", "Colour enhance" and applying something called an "alien map". I subsequently had these printed on aluminium plates which turned out pretty cool.
