I know exactly what I'm going to do, but tonight I have to go to the city council meeting so I'll have to take my picture tomorrow evening.

I'm all alone in the Nebraska sandhills. Pretty empty and featureless.

I also found this spider and took a picture, but it didn't turn out quite as good as I would have hoped, stupid auto focus. It looked clear in the little lcd screen.

Thanks dM :) I came across this at St Mary's Cathedral a couple of weeks ago - a friend who'd been there earlier in the day said there'd been a wedding that day, so I presume that's where it's from ...

Now that I look at it again I think the focus is a bit off ... ahh well.

I was going to say that looks like one of dM or UNFLUX's church photos in the background. Bettcha dM is kicking himself for not thinking of that himself lol

I'm actually looking forward to see what unflux and dM do for this one, it should be good considering the last few comps they've done.

I wish I had a full frame camera...I have an absolutely breathtaking shot but I'm not sure if my crop can go out wide enough considering I don't have an ultra wide angle for it and it's strictly based on a grid pattern and a fisheye would kill it...hopefully I can take the shot today, or at least find out :D

I immediately thought of posting this for it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/unflux/2240171626/ but I think I'm gonna go with something fresh. I already posted that pic in the photography forum some time ago. ;)

It's situations like that where I make sure I've got my hand in my pocket ready to whip out my little pocket knife. Not that that would do any good against a mugger with a gun though.....

Drats, dM. I had just thought of that same concept last night and was going to pop out on Friday morning and do virtually the same thing. Had a location all picked out already that looks nearly identical lol. hmmmm now what to do?

Don't see why you don't just go ahead and do it Mark? no two photos will be identical.

I've got three ideas - one of which is controlled by variables not under my control. I've got one of the photos done - and two others planned with at least one executable. Assuming I can find my power cable to my laptop to get the first picture off of, I should have an entry by the deadline regardless, just not sure of what yet!

That reminds me of when I visited Chicago last summer. Imagine a Nebraska hick in downtown Chicago all alone.

Thinking of sending UNFLUX some color film for Christmas

Aside from the B&W fetish it's a really great shot though UNFLUX!

I can't get my laptop to turn on and the photo I want to use is too new that I haven't backed it up :(
I think there's just a loose connector somewhere between the power button and the motherboard, but I've never opened up a laptop before...I'm going to try and take a photo today, but if I can't I can't enter :(
