    Finally the time has come for you to be MOTW!

    Time for all the funny photos we ask you to take, all sorts of questions to be answered, silly ones, philosophical ones, absurd ones - all sorts!

    Like

    - how old are you?
    - how many brothers and sisters do you have?
    - what are their names?
    - do you like animals?
    - do you have any pets?
    - if so, what are their names?
    - where did you go to school?
    - were you a good student?
    - what was your favourite subject back in school?
    - what is your favourite pasttime now? (We won't be able to guess, of course!)
    - where would you love to travel to (other than the place where you CERTAINLY want to travel to next year in May!!!)?
    - in how far do you resemble duncanp's canary?

    And take a photo of

    - your favourite shoes
    - your garden
    - the grocery shop where you go to most frequently
    - the church nearest to where you live
    - your car at night

    etc etc.

    C'mon folks, ask away, "order" away :D

    Corinna asked you about places you'd like to visit in the future. Tell us about some of the places you've already visited or lived in.

    Name 3 TPF members you'd like to meet in person.

    Name 3 things you'd like to try/do that you haven't yet tried/done (eg. skydiving, scuba, run a marathon, read the collected works of Shakespeare, see Machu Picchu at sunrise, stuff like that)

    Describe yourself as a person, what would we like about you and what might we not...

    Take a photograph of something that shows off where you live at its best and also something that shows the other end of the spectrum (assuming that's not detrimental to your health)

    Do I seem older or younger to you? I would bet older.

    You don’t like my shoes? I’ve got wide feet and it’s hard to find a big section of wides at a reasonable price

    No sweets, took that shot with the office camera, an older Sony that sometimes is not very sharp, i think they need very good light

    Wow, that's a lot of travel! And no, I'm not 'sorry I asked', but I am jealous of how many places you've seen.

    (Why on earth you'd want to meet me is astounding! :scratch: )


    What's your favorite liquid refreshment? Favorite snack? Favorite ice cream flavor?

    I bet I could answer that for him...Diet Coke.

    Jeff, I didn't know (or maybe I did, but didn't realize it) that you took design & drafting. That's also what I took and what I do for a living.

    So....if you could go back in time to photography something...anything...what would it be?

    Wow that is a wide-open question! This almost fells like a year-end self-review at work. Well overweight, thinning hair, bad legs/knees and average height that about covers the physical side. Think I’ve always been a bit reserved not really shy but slow to open up to people or make friends. What would you like or dislike about me? Not sure I know how to answer. I'm a bit gassy, but if you have a methane fuel cell generator this could be positive.
    ------------------
    I may skip the photos, let me think about them

    Well when in Drumheller, I thought it would have been cool to photograph the dinosaurs but quickly realized that it would be too risky. Maybe something saver like Mead’s expedition of course with a DSRL
