My favorite time of the year!
What's the trick to posting a photo here? My images don't have urls
Postimages — free image hosting / image upload
Select the option Hotlink for forums
Sometimes the link adds an advertisement. If this happens, just delete the url for the advertisement.
The upload page looks like this...
Or if you are a member (free) at imgur.com I'll coach you through that process.
Thanks, but it's more effort than I really want to put forth to share pics,
Post images is super easy
I''ll check it out when I get home and am using my own computer instead of this particular nightmare
Just some neighbors checking in.
As one wag called us during a high school playoff match this week…..
“ three blind mice”
I never did see such a sight in my life.
My good buddy John. This is a polaroid I took, lost it and found it this weekend in the bsmt of a bar. I remember telling him: "Hey bud. Try breakin' just one rule at a time!" Hilarious!
That would be an awesomely ironic pun at a tap takeover for all rauchbier. Which, BTW, I’m Down for. Taking to you Tap and Mallet.
critter hiding in the wife's rose bush this weekend. this small image doesn't do it justice. Looks better in a larger format on my 20 in. monitor
Yeah, wow, it’s nice in context, however the details are fantastic.
I am able to click on the image and it enlarges it and one can really hone in on those details.
I have been playing with use of extension tubes between the Nikon zoom lens and Nikon body to increase effective magnification for close-ups. Easy to use/seem to work well, but they change the effective depth of field so I have to relearn what F-stop settings get me good depth of focus without killing my required shutter speed. In this case I was about 4 inches from the insect, as I recall.
Sunrise on the bay today
St. Louis Forest Park sunrise. World’s Fair Pavilion in distance.
Zero enhancement. It’s what it looked like.
Ok, the week isn't over yet, but I like this one...I was out testing my Christmas lights so they would be ready for the weekend and I caught this awesome sunset as a nice backdrop
Plymouth Rock this morning
Hawkes Rock. Co. Sligo, Eire
Worthy of framing, IMhumbleO.
Not my pic of course, but Eire pup reminded me of this old commercial:
Right on! Good stuff. Had that poster in a dorm room in college. Cheers!
Blue Ridge Mountains, VA. Looking South from Devils Knob, as the day progressed.
And…with the sunrise at my back…
its amazing how the sky can change from brilliant oranges, yellows and reds to pinks, purples and blues…
I love studies like this.
Same position and rotated the view 90 degrees , amazing sky that images just don’t capture
I really like this shot.
Most of the pics here are awesome, but this one flat out rocks.
I really miss Bloom County!
I recall someone mentioned in one of the forums that the strip is still being produced but is only available online. It may be on this website: https://www.berkeleybreathed.com/ which is under re-construction right now so I'm just guessing, but if you click on the Facebook link at the bottom it looks like a new strip is produced there daily(?). The Instagram link seems to be a different arrangement but I didn't look downward.
I miss Bloom County too, and I had forgotten about that other forum posting until now so since I looked it up just now I may start reading the strip again. Opus is my hero!
I read Flawed Dogs because, well, Berkeley Breathed wrote and illustrated it. Thanks for posting the link! I'll bookmark that and check back with my daily Gary Larson feed.
But this is off topic for an Off Topic forum; I'd better post a photo soon!
This is the view (Okay, part of the view) from my back yard. When we first moved in I was not thrilled with having wetlands (AKA: swamp) in our back yard, but then the red-winged blackbirds came, and come every summer. Their song lifts my spirit and cheers my soul.
In the winter the cattails rest, and wait...
Nice pic, but how do the mosquitoes like you?
Oddly they are not bad. I was very concerned about that myself and we bought a "Mosquito Magnet" which works quite well when you have the right scent, but we seldom need to deploy it.
great pic....it has been years since I have been out in freezing cold, but I can hear that frozen vegetation crunching underfoot just by looking at your pic.
