    Mebe I mis-titled it?

    How about, Bowl of Plenty?

    Hmm,... or, Toileticopia?

    Prune Party Gone Wild?

    Or, Loosen up?


    And this SO DIDN'T work in color.

    well I like it, good storytelling pic that raises some questions....why are some of them filled with concrete and who would own a dunny graveyard?

    Hopefully this isn't too controversial, but I don't see this one as one of your stronger offerings. I can kind of see what you're trying to show us, but I don't think it comes off. Neither the composition nor the viewpoint really work for me. Perhaps a smaller selection of scene would have worked better, something more abstract maybe. Whether colour or b&w would work better needs to be thought about in the context of that selection.

    Thanks. I think the pottery plants fill them rather than when they don't come out right.

    There's countless bizarre, yet strangley interesting stories in the naked desert. :) Thanks.

    I have to agree with you- This was a shot between here-n-there. I was rushed to get to 'there.' I have a couple shots where the scene has a view across the open desert. I was thinking about calling it, "View from the Last Resort." In processing though, the again shot became caught between two others and was more or less too hurried and the title change. Thought I did well, but looking at it the next morning it took a 'dump.'

    It's such a weird thing to find. Maybe I should go back out and spend the time on them they deserve.

    :)

    I may be being picky here, but I really don't want to see any photographic evidence of that... :confused:

    Nah, too shy.

    How about I take a model and set up a shot like Rodan's, The Thinker and call the whole thing -- Discarded Thoughts?

    The Last Resort - It's a little misleading I am thinking abandond hotels on that title

    The Butt Stops Here - Interesting, but I don't think any butts will be stoping there any time soon. lol

    Bowl of Plenty - I just plain old don't get that one

    Prune Party Gone Wild - there is a great element of humor in that title, good if you are out to get some giggles, but some may not get it

    Loosen up - Bigger better badder sense of humor in this one, I kind of like it, I got a laugh out of that

    That I like, it's perfect with the way you layed it out I can allredy see it.

    That's just my humble oppinion.

    :thumbup: So now I'm thinking, it's going to be a problem getting anyone I know to go out in the middle of the desert with me, git-nekkid, and sit on a busted commode while I take a picture (and then, drive off with their clothes). This will at least cost someone their dignity!- Obviously, once I file the nekkid photo with the missing person's report (honest officer, it was the last I saw him), I'll be out of any I once may have had :)

    You mean like an Alfred Hitchcock cameo- In my own shot? Finally, something I don''t have to lose weight for.

    Now on my to-do list!
