Now I'll be out of the continent on the due date and the week after so if I could get another mod to please take care of the voting thread that would be greatly appreciated!

hmmm, going to have to do my idea up right to beat breeze. But I think I got the right idea. I have two ideas. Just need to decide which one and which makes the better photo.

i've seen your work Breeze, and I like it, but I think I got you on this one. Mine won't be a matter of going out and shooting but setting up the scene. Hopefully I can get the camera back this weekend.

Well, I have an image for you guys ... found on the top of a water pipe ... each new section and there was a new year. The first one I came across was 2006 and the last 1984 :)

This is an old one - the ones I was going for yesterday didn't turn out, and I'm very busy soon, so I doubt I'll be taking many photos.

When I saw your handle and I saw this post the first thing I thought about was how much I hate Starbucks coffee. Second thing I thought about was how cool a picture it would be to have a nice steaming cup of "rusty" colored starbucks coffee with a rusty 6 inch spike as a stir stick. hmmmm if it wasn't for the fact that the closest starbucks is 30 minutes away hmmmmmmm.....

Exactly!

I've also read members on here saying they don't like Subway too. I can't understand that one!

Side note - Subway is now the biggest fast food chain in the UK, even bigger than Macdonalds. Interesting because 5 years ago i had never heard of the company.

Friends don't let friends eat subway when there's a Quiznos around.
I got burnt out on Subway having known half a dozen people who worked there. It gets old after you've been able to make your own sub when nobody's around.

Quiznos is good, but just a simple little sandwich costs the same as one of the fancy sandwiches with chips and a cookie and a drink at subway. The subways in my town I don't go to often though because the people who work there are idiots, they are either deaf or they are grouchy.

In what way is that not allowed?

I make it as the deadline being on the 19th, so that to me is anytime before 23:59 on the 19th of November in the east coast of America. That post was left at 22:17GMT, so to me the entry is still valid.

Maybe i'm missing something?

My problem last night was I didn't bring my camera home with me from work, so had no chance to even improvise something. Otherwise I'd have squeezed something in.

Did you guys ever notice just how much rust there is in the world? If I was so inclined, I could create a couple terabytes worth of images on the subject.

For me, that's what was difficult about this comp.
