Steph, October 20, 2012 in The Lounge
Want you to know that I and all your TMC friends are here with you now!
Isn't it relaxing here? The 'The Lounge' forum sure is a peaceful place!
You can talk, or fall asleep, or do anything you want!
When you think about it, you couldn't have things better!
Now that I've talked you down, I have to say
Boy! That graphic really hit me!
I kind of want to swivel my big monitor vertically and look at it full-screen,
but I'm having some possible seizure concerns, so I don't know. ( :
Like, man, that was really beautiful man. Peace out.
I'm a little late in saying that winnie's 'dancing ducks' is pretty spectacular.
And not the kind of photo you're going to see in publications
which depend on random people with phones for their pictures.
The 'seizure concern' I mentioned earlier reminded me of something I
learned about during my construction days. You know those little strobe
lights (Cool! I'm integrating 'far-out' stuff into this boring post!) that you
see as part of or next to fire alarms in commercial buildings these days?
They were of course designed to be 'noticeable'. Which is kind of an
understated way to put it. But the people who researched how to best
accomplish this did too good a job. So when these alarms first appeared,
it turned out that a good number of people who didn't even know they
were in the upper-half of the 'seizure-prone' community wound up
convulsing when fire alarms would go off in business or public places.
Luckily, some sharp research people discovered that the seizure problem
only occurred when all the strobe lights were in synchronization. (Sorry!
I was going to say "synch", but figured the whole word would sound more
sophisticated!) So all that was necessary to solve the problem was to
wire the strobes to go off in a random fashion.
So this is why you now look down a long hallway when alarms are going
off, and see random flashes instead of blink-blink-blink-blink.
yo Steph, is that the stairway to heaven?!
fun with the camera, DB.
One of my last fog images.
And if B&W is not your thing, another semi recent fog image.
Alleynut's shot is great.
I think everyone should either go out and take photos like this,
or look at the photos of those who do. Possibly meditate upon them.
There's something about 'natural patterns' which can really teach
you a lot. Well I think so. ( :
And jeeperman's awesome b&w has both a 'natural pattern' (the tree)
and an 'untold story' to it. Which is much more interesting than
most 'Okay, I get it.' shots.
Thanks Steph and Bob. I agree the patterns of nature can teach us much, they are also just fun to shoot and look at.
BTW the fossils are fantastic!
The flowers and dew is just spectacular. ( :
Thanks, Bob. Hope we see some more eye candy and I did not kill the thread. =}
Pretty clear to me that you did nothing but help the thread!
But I do wonder sometimes about the names of certain topics.
And the funny thing is that it's the 'best named' ones that
sometimes seem to have a problem. At least in my own
personal neurotic experience. It's the 'long-term' topics, like
this one, or 'food', or 'what are you listening to now?'.
Sometimes these forums have a lull for a while, and it feels
like a message you leave in them gets so quickly pushed
into the background by a current 'hot' topic that many people
don't get a chance to see it.
On the other hand, if you start a new, more noticeable
thread, you feel like you're not playing by board etiquette.
I don't know. Maybe I just worry about stuff too much. ( :
One of my faves.
Yes Scott, I had never seen them in white before. Thought it made for an interesting image.
