Sorry but GPS belongs in your car, not your camera. ' Nuff said.

Thanks for the compliment! It's not often that I do a still life and am always glad when it turns out so nicely.

On BUBBLING OVER.... in the What Is This? – II. challenge (5 comments in total)

Good guesses but you guys are only partly right. This is actually a one-off photo of a fast food soft drink cup and the "bubbles" are the condensation on the underside of the clear plastic lid. I was out one cold and rainy morning with my Tamron SP90 f/2.8....I hadn't had the chance to "stretch it's legs "as it were so I took it out for a spin and well....there you go. This is the second of two shots from that series...guess it turned out better than I expected!

On HAPPY LANDINGS in the Fast Movement shot ( Bird ) challenge (1 comment in total)

Didn't think this one was gonna do that well....a last minute decision entry and not one of my better ones. Still, I do like it as it's one of my first serious attempts at catching birds on the wing.

ioshadha: Amazing shot... Looking at your specs - did you use a flash for this?

Nope...just a teensy bit of tweaking for exposure correction and color from Photoshop, otherwise it's shot with the natural light.

Looks like either a baby pigeon or a dove, aka a squab. Probably fell out of his nest, poor lil guy...

On Homophily challenge (2 comments in total)

Since this word is just another way of saying "birds of a feather flock together", can the subject be both animal or human?

On - Emulating a Drawing - challenge (11 comments in total)

I really liked this challenge...it was fun to twiddle with a few of my pictures to see how they'd turn out, especially that hibiscus flower from my neighbor's hedge. Indeed, let's do another one!

On PRETTY ON THE INSIDE in the Bell Peppers challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks! I haven't done too many still-life shots up to this point, but I'm starting to thanks in part to some of the lenses I've bought over the last 6 months. I took this one with my Minolta f/1.7 50mm prime, my kitchen table and wouldja believe my cat's favorite sleeping basket. Light was courtesy of a bit of late Summer afternoon sun coming thru the window with ambience set by a few deft pulls on the blinds....needless to say I got a pretty nice result!
