    game within the game
    So lately I've been unable to keep up with y'all, so I'm scrolling through a few days worth of pics at a time (and really, deeply, colorfully swearing at dgrin's concept of "read" and "unread"). Doing this I've found a rather entertaining game within the game... trying to guess (a) what the poster thought tied their shot to the previous, and (b) how many other ways you can tie them together, or (c) what the relationship between the shooter and the subject was.

    For example, between posts 2090 and 2091 there is (a) the obvious facial similarities between Jim Cantore and the pooch... but there is also (b) things which should be outlawed, and (c) I'm guessing producer and host for Storm Stories, and I hope, passerby and dog looking for pity.

    Namely for b I'm thinking [size=-1]pronged collars and allowing journalists into disaster zones solely for the purpose of "filing a report." (not to say that's the only reason wxwax and Cantore were there... but generally speaking, what I've heard from folks on the ground in nola that's about all any of the media were doing.)

    I moved your post and rutt's post from the Shootout thread, to where they belong, here, in this thread.

    Pffffttt.

    The show he worked on got a lot of thanks from people there for telling the story of the entire Gulf coast, not just NOLA. Remind me to turn to a guy from MN to find out what's going on on the ground in hurricane territory. naughty.gif

    Yes - I am trying now to go for the un-obvious when I play - can't always, but the fun part is taking a tiny element from prior pic and going in whole new direction thumb.gif

    I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.

    I happen to admire Jim Cantore. I host on my private servers the chat rooms for Storm2k, a large community of avid hurricane watchers, meteorologist and enthusiast. During the hurricanes that chat room is an intense serious place and most are also tuned in to TWC etc. There are many professionals - military and civilian also.
    I associated the intense worry and concern in his face with the same expression of the Vizula dog I took at a dog show. I've wanted to play the game for a long time, but I'm just not fast enough or I don't have good enough pics to post. It's fun and I get many laughs just reading this thread.

    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!"

    Yes, I now realize my comment was like throwing rocks at a bee's nest - no good can come of this :uhoh .

    I'm sure you have the ubiquitous "matching avian shot" for anything we can post.
