    Am I missing something? It doesn't really seem like anything.

    Looks like a heavily cropped ASA 800 shot with some tinkering, but I can't say I grasp the thought process here.

    Well, I'm pretty old, and when I was in school we had girls with cooties.

    I never really understood what in the hell a cootie was anyhow, and most of those young women were pretty nice anyhow. They certainly didn't look any different than the girls known to be without cooties. I thought I'd post my rendition of a girl with cooties, if, you could actually tell she in fact, had cooties.

    My grand daughter was nice enough to pose for me in this shot. She's normally pretty, intelligent, and as far as I can tell, cootie free. She also has a sense of humor and imagination, which I believe is why she (as well as her sisters and cousin) does what I ask in order to do the strange things I enjoy doing.

    My oldest grand daughter;

    Your comment doesn't really seem to say anything either- You have a point?

    Oh... they're still there. They just call it something else these days. I never got over this cruelty. And I never understood the pleasure taken from the meanness.


    I knew what you meant. The title got me to look.

    Good goin'!

    Oh the innocence of youth! When you say that someone has Cooties it would be best to know what you are talking about. A cootie is a small insect parasite found on sheep. Shepherds get them and the cause a terrible itch. They are a form of lice like crabs or bedbugs. not pleasant.
    Another term often used Is SUCKS, as in mean people suck. Do people not realize that this is a homophobic derogatory term referring to the sex acts of gay people? Although I am not gay, I find it very offensive.
    Think about what you are saying before you say it.

    To me this looks like an aimless series of Photoshop adjustments and filters.
    Just my opinion though, looks like some people enjoy it.
