Taken any good pictures lately?

Post by Damien Thorn @ Wed Apr 03, 2013 12:44 pm

We all take pictures, don't we? So let's use this thread to show them off or ask for opinions on them or advice on how to make them better, or anything else you like! But strictly to do with our own pictures because rules!

Give me a minute and I'll kick a couple up here to start us off.

The picture would be worth 994 more words than that.

All my pictures tend to be taken on my phone nowadays, but I don't think that's an excuse for anything.

Taken any good pictures lately?

Post by Magrilla @ Thu Apr 04, 2013 9:32 pm

Cat sitting on my chest, clearly disgusted at the snow outside last week

Spatula sitting next to a glass on the side of my mould coloured bath

M&S runny yolked scotch egg

Horrible iPhone 4 only. I really need a camera, or at least a decent camera phone.

I'm glad the first cat photos have been posted. This bodes well for future entries of mine.

Is that outburst likely to lead to more cat photos or fewer KM ? :scratchchin:

Got a new foster from the pound yesterday.

Also went to a wooden boat festival on the weekend and parked under this nice shady tree.

Nice mix of old and new in a speedboat.

Black? Please tell me you did not just say that? I'm not even going to dignify your post with a response.

I'm also a little put off by your racist wording. Australian's use the word negroidian. So in future I would appreciate it if you call any Aussies that, it would be great.

Regards,

Tyrone.

Oh hush it won't just be cat pictures obviously as I also have a dog. If it placates you I can also throw in some pics taken looking up a tree, as they seem quite popular as well.

Theres nothing popular round here except excellence, span. Do post away in free and unrestrained confidence.

NB if it is a pet cat pic it better be a bloody excellent one. A pet tiger undoing a maiden's bra from behind while making a trollface, against a sunset silhouette of sharks playing cards by the pool, level of excellent. Kapische?!

Interesting. I'm not keen because it's all too sharp.

That's not a criticism Crikers, just a preference.

So do I. I might have liked one straight-on to them a bit more, even. Did you take one square on as well, C?
