That would work, especially on a night like tonight!

Can't log in at .net site, so I'll pass along a happy birthday to Kestrana here.

/and Elsinore, what is "wik"? Some new texting abbreviation? I searched to find acronyms, but I'm pretty sure you weren't talking about a Water-Injection Kit.

Oh dear, Zero. I'm afraid you've just embarrassed yourself with this crowd with your lack of nerditude. This link should make it all clear, though.

// j/k on the shame; I had to refresh my memory on it recently as well. The key is to google "also wik".

BecauseISaidSo explained wik (and many thanks for that!), but I'm not sure what's up with the login issue.  What browser are you using?  mopsy mentioned on FB not being able to log in, though I'm not sure if she was referring to Fark itself or the .net site.  Were you previously able to log in since the site's been back up?

Tried again today, and was able to login after agreeing to TOS. And there was much rejoicing (yay!).

Well slap me with a fish! Usually I am the guy making Python references, mostly followed by what-is-wrong-with-that-boy expressions, because nobody has even seen them. I feel like such a silly bunt now.

You need to get yourself a mess of young'uns. That's one of the true joys of parenthood - introducing all of your tired old cliche references to a new (and captive) audience!

a/a/a in the farktography forum, but nutshell for those who can't get in, started just after sunset (when they turned the neon on), and kept shooting for near 1/2 hour; 'sunset' is actually about 30 deg. out of frame to the left (winter; direction in photo is 'west'), and buildings were still reflecting ambient light well enough at some 10 minutes after sunset. 1/40th sec, was it f/7.1? Thereabouts, I think the ISO was 800? Or 400? //too tired to look it up; 3 hours sleep and an overnight shift to go; insomnia sucks...

Congrats to Mitt Romneys Tax Return on his win for this week's "Vertical Landscapes" theme!  His first time out with us and he puts it in the W column; nicely done!

It's a sad day here. Berry's Camera Shop, the last real camera store around, is closing forever at the end of business hours today. I started patronizing them in 1969 (or maybe late '68).

At our wedding the year before, my parents gave us an advanced 126 film camera with a zoom lens¹. That lit a fire in me and by the next year (see above), I had bought myself a Canon Ftb SLR² at Berry's. The salesman I dealt with later became the owner. Today his kids, the owners for quite a few years now, are closing the place down. I'll actually get one more chance in the store. I ordered a moderately priced item that didn't make to the store yet so I'll get a call and go pick it up and get a chance to browse a few odds and ends.

¹Possibly inspired in part by my showing interest in things photographic by taking pictures with an old TLR and figuring out that dad's 8mm camera would do single frame and making wacky animations.

²Still shoot Canon, though there was a Nikon flirtation in the mid 70s. Still the same wife too, for that matter.
 
  2012-12-15 07:52:13 PM
Damn...that's incredibly sad, Morchella.  We still have a local camera shop down here that seems to be holding its own.  I try to patronize it whenever possible to support the local business.

Could this be a trifecta for Elsinore? Looks like it might!--have to wait till the contest closes though... (congrats also to oddmind w/two awesome pics!)

It looks as if tricky, flashy-thingie was the favorite this week, followed closely by furry creatures! I am so pleased to be sharing places with the excellent photos of Elsinore and Queen Mab, and thanks to ravnostic for the appreciative words.
 
  2013-01-13 02:51:50 PM
Seriously, I'm gobsmacked at getting three in a row.  And I'm glad to share that place with another cool use of flash--very nicely done, oddmind, you had a vote from me!  Loved the details on the cat's tongue, too.

Congrats to wickedfish for his "Auto Erotica" win this week!

Also, since I didn't get a chance to welcome our newbs and welcome back our old timers, a warm welcome to Farktography First Timers bemused outsider, Lusiphur, and ramell, and a warm welcome back to bakerlaw67, basemetal, onecanshort, shuylkill, tshauk, USAF Retired, and thread winner wickedfish, all of whom we hadn't seen in many moons.  Hope to see all of you back next week!

Wow, didn't expect to see a mention in my inbox today, thanks!  I've been a stranger around TF in general but things like this remind me why I should pop in more often.  I need to get more active behind the lens too so I'll make it a point to bookmark this thread and keep an eye out for these threads.

Yes, please do!  Here's a list of upcoming themes; you can always find them at Farktography.net, but I'll start posting them on a more ongoing basis in here, too.  The links take you to the theme description page with more details.

Jan 30--"404: Contest Not Found": Take a photo of where something used to be.
Feb  6--"Neon 2: Electric Boogaloo": Neon lights, not just neon colors.
Feb 13--"Pets": Actual pets, no zoo animals, though "exotic" pets like tarantulas and parrots are fine if they are actually someone's pet.
Feb 20--"Office Space": Office spaces and things.
Feb 27--"Lakes": Lakes, ponds, puddles, or your bathtub. No rivers, streams, waterfalls, or oceans unless connected to a lake in the photo.
Mar  6--"Software Hootenanny 3": Something of a free-for-all in terms of processing.  Stuff we don't usually allow like artistic filters, fake tilt-shift effects, exposure stacking/HDR, stitching, etc are ok and encouraged for this one.  Only caveat is that you still can't cut/paste objects into or out of the photos as you would for a PS contest.  (e.g. simple retouching is fine, removing light poles not so much)
 
  2013-01-24 11:38:32 PM
Good to know, thanks! That page has been bookmarked.   I've always just seen the contests and scoured my archives for matching subjects.  I figured people just used that thread with the teaser of the next subject to pick their next shots, this helps haha.

I've got some obvious locations in mind already for the one on the 30th, but I don't think I'm ready to take that on yet from a personal standpoint.

I can probably do the next few after though.
 
  2013-01-25 02:13:41 PM
Good deal :)  As it is, I'm not sure I'm going to have time to shoot something for next week...might have to archive dive, and not sure if I have anything in there that would fit.

It looks like namedot'sentries do not play well with the "disconnect 4.2.0" extension for Chrome.  Could it be because his image host starts with https instead of just http?  Disabling disconnect allows me to see the entry.
