Gargoyle in France, but don't remember where. Shot with a Lomo. Note that the face of the cherub to his left is chipped off--that's because of protestant iconoclasts removing the faces of all statues depicting saints. I wish I had the other picture handy, which shows the faceless saints above him.

loved them all! The doll with the trimmed nose hair...very weird. Ever see corn husk dolls? I've had a small collection since I was younger. I think they came from one of the islands but they are so cute and unique. I never see them anywhere else.

stanyanstreet : Thanks for the props on the church shot. I really dig the "coffee time" photo you put up. Btw, I did four yrs @ UVM (back when the drinking age was 18 and B'town had more bars per capita than anywhere else in the country - if these things are important to you). Also, I'm heading up to Woodstock, VT this weekend. I'll be sure to say high to the state for ya!

idle_hands: Thx for the snow plough rr car - it makes me tingly all over! Btw, time+sea=yummy.

veruce: I think I need to chill with you and GalleyWench - I'll bring the flashlights and batteries. Love that asylum shot where the chiascaro meets color - nice use of depth, too; it almost loooks like an optical illusion. It'll be in my dreams.

monkeybort : I'm doing fine, fine, fine taking this thread in - awesome entries, no? Your doll picture, though, is making me drool - I've been a big/silent fan of your doll pix, but this one takes the cake. Here's one for you:

yes, definitely awesome entries. lots of variety as well, which is always nice. if there's to be a field trip to the asylum, where do i sign up? i've got a permission slip and everything.

are you intentionally blending last week's theme (fire) with this week's? or is it a happy accident? either way, i like it.

she is just delightful! we'll have to save her for our illegitimate silver based love child.

Hey, veruca, sorry 'bout that typo.

GalleyWench: your pix are absolutely scrumptious. Where is that house? I definitely need to roadtrip w/ you, veruca & monkeybort - we'll grab up idle_hands, too, no?

yeimi: wow. Can you come with us?

monkeybort: are you intentionally blending last week's theme (fire) with this week's? or is it a happy accident?

Happy accident insofar as the fire aspect of it only dawned on me after I posted the three pix last week. Lucky I could use it this week. (Church=bridge to the afterlife for next week's?)

If anyone wants to see a 20 year old photo of the same place verucas photo was taken, I added one to my profile.

Galleywench:
a 20 year old photo of the same place veruca's photo was taken:

When the Full Moon Traveling Underground Photo Party stops in Rhode Island, there's an abandoned WWI coastal gun battery complex that has at least 40 years of graffiti and partying embedded into the crumbling concrete. Looks like a kindred spot.

First, the ruins of the Roman Forum, taken on a recent trip to Europe. Hard to believe this whole area, including the pillars in the forground, was lost under a big pile of dirt.

2005-11-16 11:33:31 PM  
Second Entry:
A waterfall in the Smokies. I figured this works for the passage of time in that erosion over time created the beatiful fall, or the time over which the photo was taken, which was rather long.

Here is a tree that saw the passage of time. She was over six feet in diameter before I had to cut her down due to rot and being too close to the house. At leist I think it was a girl tree.

A very apt title. I'll have to plumb up my courage and go look at the whole series.

Logomancer - The light in the first picture of the burned church...wow. I stared at that for a while.

Excellent work all! I look forward to these every week. Now, if I can just dust off my Nikon and learn to shoot better pictures, maybe I'll join you...

2005-11-17 7:26:04 PM  
I just signed up a week ago. It's convenient to not have to watch for the thread all night.. worth $5. However, I've done quite well before I had TF, and if you check the post times typically people who've posted their pictures right when the thread hits the main page do just about as well.

Now, if you enter even later than that, you've missed the boat. Lots of people have already voted by 8AM the next day when you posted your photos, even though I really enjoyed your photos.

Besides, it's just for fun. Lighten up :)
 
2005-11-17 7:29:50 PM  
Thanks cowardm :)

eskimeaux: I just got a D50 last week and I love it. I've gotten great results with my Lumix FZ-3, but the noise makes it hard to get a good photo beyond ISO 100 and even then it's visible. Other than that I honestly don't know that I would have necessarily upgraded. It's a pretty fantastic little camera. And I just took the photo yesterday afternoon :) I thought that would be a good subject, and the photo came out as intended- a rarity I assure you.

Thanks for voting for me everyone, I'm thrilled!
