Since there have been exactly zero submissions for Photo Fun Challenge 5, I'm extending the deadline until Jan 10.

I was probably crazy to think anyone would get around to a PFC this time of year. So y'all enjoy your holidays, and keep an eye out for that perfect shot.

Ob. geometric inspiration

very nice by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #2 Tue Dec 11, 2007 at 04:16:45 AM EST
Don't suppose you could just drive back and take it from a slightly different angle? :)

I've been sorely tempted to twiddle the EXIF date on old photos for previous contests, but managed to resist.

I had some great ice-covered plants to work with by greyrat (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Dec 11, 2007 at 04:40:55 AM EST
yesterday, but taking photos at work is forbidden, and home was far enough south (if you can believe it) that ther was no ice.

climate is funny by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #4 Tue Dec 11, 2007 at 05:09:20 AM EST
A buddy lives 15 minutes away from the ocean. Often it will be snowing at home but freezing rain in town. In the spring/fall that 15 minute drive might cause a temp. difference of t-shirt versus long sleeves.

It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?

it may have been unnecessary, but who knows by discordia (4.00 / 1) #11 Sun Dec 30, 2007 at 09:33:00 AM EST
I'm not sure what the exact procedure is around these parts, but it never hurts to be comprehensive

Dammit by BadDoggie (4.00 / 1) #12 Sat Jan 05, 2008 at 01:26:07 AM EST
I would've had this one locked up with a pic of the suspension section of the bridge between Denmark and Sweden. Snow and fog prevented my getting a picture, and a lack of desire to do that drive again (and shell out the €34 toll each way) will prevent me from ever getting that picture. Dammit. Must find something geometricalish here in Munich.

woof.

OMG WE'RE FUCKED! -- duxup ?

looked at the bridge on images.google.com by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #13 Sat Jan 05, 2008 at 03:23:53 PM EST
Probably would have been a sweet shot.

Indeed by BadDoggie (4.00 / 1) #14 Sun Jan 06, 2008 at 12:05:13 AM EST
During the day on the way to Sweden you couldn't see beyond 100m or so. On the way back it was nighttime and the curve leading to the bridge would've eben a perfect point to take a long exposure, but the snow and patchy fog conspired to stop this attempt as well.

Who am I kidding? I'm actually quite likely to rent a car in CPH if I fly through there on a nice day, then drive over the bridge in both directions before cathing the connecting flight. I shoulda asked if there was a discounted day pass.

woof.
