The Mick: Congratulations on your winning photo, Stan_k! Beautiful young lady as well. Have a good day!Mick
I want to get a tattoo of myself on my entire body, only 2" taller.
Hey Tom Arto,It's all subjective. I believe there is beauty to be found in most everything and everyone. Regarding the woman in this challenge's winning photo, I can understand that some people would not find her tattoos appealing, may not find her "dread locks" to their liking, etc. That kind of thing isn't really my cup of tea either, but I still think she has some beautiful features to be seen and the photographer exposed those nicely. ;o) I stand by my original comment. While I don't personally find tattoos, etc., attractive, I definitely don't find this model hideous or repulsive. I'm the only guy I know who doesn't have a tattoo, piercing, smartphone or facebook account, but not for religious reasons or to keep from being repulsive to people. The fact that I am overweight and bald are probably reason enough for some. ;o) You can't please everyone, no matter what, but you can make an attempt to be respectful to others and I try to do that (most of the time).Take care,Mick
Chris Noble: Without a comma, means you want to fly in the back of the plane.
Hey Chris,I am probably considered by many to be a member of the grammar police, so I hate to admit I didn't catch that one. ;o) Too funny! We all make mistakes. Now that we've had a laugh, I believe we should do something supportive of our fine host and participate in IronMikeV's challenge, assuming he will still have us. I hope everyone has a great day!Take care,Mick
You don't see that every day. Killer timing! Well captured shot!Cheers,Mick
Joriarty: I can confess to moving my browser window and lining up the edges of the pergola with the bottom of my screen...
Great submission, the mind works in mysterious ways!
I am guilty of the same Joriarty. ;o) Great example, Ruth!
Well deserving of the win. This is absolutely gorgeous! Bravo!

RuthC: Congratulations, The Mick, on winning a top place in this 'I Spied a Spider' challenge, with your speciality: a jumping spider. As always, it's a wonderful capture of this tiny spider, with such an expressive face and the brightest black eyes. The hair: well, I thought these spiky hairstyles went out of fashion a few yeas ago, but perhaps not. :-) Ruth :-)
Thank you kindly, Ruth! Have a great weekend!Mick
