A 3-wheeled roadster, first and only one I've seen; you would think the bright yellow was enough to attract my attention; NO, it was the three wheels; an unusual design, stable and probably practical.The rider had just tanked-up at the starbuck cafe and willingly accepted my request; "nice" he beamed, eyeing the result on the monitor; a happy smile on his caffeine lips as he zoomed away. Geoy.

Isn't this exactly how you might expect three tourists to act/look just before the "real" photographer (standing to the right of Geoy) prepares to snap their picture? But of course that shooter (obviously the fourth member of two couples), as a tourist would be shooting wider to include more of the scenic beauty.So I'm supposing that the actual sculpture does include that fourth member, bronze camera in hand. Or if not, then the sculpture was designed so that live tourists can join this trio for a light-hearted family album shot.I wonder if the presence of the sculpture causes any live tourists to self-consciously refrain from posing their families thus? And do solo travelers happily take this shot to add a vicarious shared-experience dimension to their perhaps lonely vacations?Maybe that person welcomes a crowd.(End-of-quote).ref: "Wed C&C (No Theme) Thread, Ed. 270, 13 06 26 " in "Olympus SLR Talk" forum.

Gruesome title, very clever and humorous.(How did you ever get away with a repeat submittal?).Geoy.
Brilliant, an awesome win. Congratulations.Geoy.
Excellent image, I like it very much.Geoy.
Found this topic so compelling, that I just had to vote and give my support.One question I have is why the 'rule' for a border? Since many good entries do not meet this condition; and maybe for a good reason, as it probably requires additional software that many cannot acquire.I can understand that a title, and other descriptive identification on the photo as a need to give meaning, classification and clarification, but why a border?.Geoy.
PS: his buddy to the right was riding a shiny Norton; equally nice,but only two wheels.Geoy.

It could be a lovely shot as the whole place looks marvelous."

You might do better with a close up that had only tree in the image, taken from a good angle and with better lighting. Also, it may look good in a mono conversion."Posted in: * Wed C&C (No Theme) Thread, Ed. 263, 13 05 08 *
