    I kept serving them up, Harry. I figured sooner or later ...I'd get to see that dead frog again. thumb.gif
    Best frog shot I ever got. Actually it was hard choosing which eating pic to go with. DukeGirl.gif

    How many photographers does it take to change a light bulb? 50. One to change the bulb, and forty-nine to say, "I could have done that better!"

    Labby - your post #1233 is actually quite a hilarious transition if you think about it for a minute.

    Thanks Nick and Lin. That shot looks good as a black and white. I have horses like Harry has birds...almost inexhaustible, ran away there for a while. ne_nau.gif

    WOW! Y'all are moving FAST. Last time I looked at this thread there were like 80 pages and I made it to 50, tonight... 129! but I made it all the way through, and miracle of miracles, that last shot, as soon as i saw it I knew the photo from my collection to link.

    Amazingly fun game! Much more fun to watch than a certain game that's been on the tele lately... something about a laundry competition? headscratch.gif

    So the game thread is up to 1300 images.

    Now, if you spent a mere 15 seconds viewing each picture in the thread, that means you've spent (wasted) 5.42 hours at your computer screen - just playing the association game. headscratch.gif

    Now use this formula: 5.42 X {enter your hourly pay here - or what you believe your hourly time to be worth, if unemployed} = $

    Wow, I better get to work - I'd have made a considerable dent in my new Nikon D200 down payment if it weren't for this silly game.rolleyes1.gif

    hidden contests
    So is there a hiden contest in this to see who can post the most shots of Andy? or fellow dgrinners?

    Oh, and wholenewlight, there are entire pages I've spent less than 15 seconds on... a quick swipe of the mouse wheel to see.. bird, bird, birds, bird, bird, birds, gee will ya look at that... a bird, birds, three women in bikinis.... I swear this thread will put the most millage on my pour mouse wheel faster than anything.

    the dgrin game is a plot to throw off the contestants of the other contest
    I'll tell you what I think about this dgrin game.... it is throwing off the calculations for the dgrin posting contest of when Andy will post his 10,000th post.

    Now, I know I have calculated his average posts per day and his # of days posting here for #10K to the exact date, minute and second (even local N.Y time), but I'll tell you, this game thing is going to warp my otherwise precise calculations and deviate them by probably a few days off. I hadn't figured on this dgrin game thread at all. Next time I'll be more careful to include this or other variables.

    Yes, I know that I can not legally win that contest being a moderator, but it is the principle of the thing afterall.

    There. I feel better. OK, I'll go quietly now.

    Thanks Rutt

    It is a scan from a B n W neg when I was still shooting film.

    I liked the action and the light streaming through the dust. I wish the cowboy in the back didn't have a video camera, it dates the shot.

    This was at a rodeo in Cody WY, just outside yellowstone about 4 years ago.

    minor request
    In other game threads like this, when commenting on the game post (in our case the picture) in the game thread, it's common to at least put the comment number in the discussion thread... or some folks even do a link to it. This makes it easier when folks are catching up later to see the correlation and see which pic of rutts looks good enough to eat for example. (not that it was hard to figure in that case, but some others have taken a while to track down).

    Thanks.

    I think the of seat back arches reminded him of the building in
    the center. They do get tricky now and then.
