    I shot this as part of a themed contest on another forum. The theme was Headlines. I got the newspaper and tried to find something that would match it....who would have thunk it... a protest was going on downtown. :lol::lol: Oh....missed winning by 1 vote. :lol::lol:

    After a police drug sweep across the city, I came across these drums in a low rental housing project near my house. After shooting this image, I was approached by a few of the angry tenants. I quickly slammed my car door and sped off. :lol::lol: Wont go into details but these were removed a few days later​

    Great shots!!! Love them all!

    Please explain to me why you are not "pro"??!! Tell me, huh...huh.....huh....??!!!!! LOL!!

    Seriously,...other than the fear of possibility of sqashing your artistic creativity or maybe the pressure to "produce" photos....I'm not sure why your photos aren't shared, for the masses to see?? Maybe they are?? Do you ever do shows in galleries???

    Keep 'em coming!!!!!

    ....Hope you are on the mend!!

    Thank you for your kind words my friend. If I become pro, then I have to be all grumpy, and cranky, and no fun. :lol::lol::lol:
    I did not realize how many images I had till the weekend. I found a few untouched folders of stuff I have never looked at. :er: I have a few thousand images and do nothing with them. They just sit on 2 80gig hard drives, and whatever is on my web site. Mostly time is not on my side, with having a full time job and all. Never done an art show, and yesterday, I printed and hung my second photo in my house. :lol::lol:
    I just got my 3rd publication. A childrens educational book, and didnt do anything. They found me. :grumpy:

    Thank you StSinner...appreciate your comments.

    I think Chiller is pro. He's here under an alt identity to be creative w/o boundaries. :mrgreen:

    Don't worry, we won't blow your cover. ;)

    At the very least, if they are raw batch convert them to basic jpg then set the screen saver on your computer to Slide Show and tell it to pull from your folder of photos, that way you will at least have a full-time display of your images.

    I have a file server and two desktops in this room all set the same way, the file server just displays the screen saver 24/7. I can just sit and watch the photos for hours sometimes.

    I find the Google screensaver to be much better than XP or Vista: Download Google Screensaver without installing Google Pack - Digital Inspiration

    Beautiful shots. #1 is by far my favorite.

    I'm still trying to figure out why these are in the "Just for fun" category because they are very good shots...I guess I think of the Just for Fun ones to be simple snaps that aren't worthy of real critique!

    Nicely done! It's always good when you venture into the light.

    I LOVE the color view! Good choice of everything... subject, angle, exposure... all very nice.
