One post per person, please. Entries only, no comments (we have original thread for discussion)

Picture must be taken by you at any time during the Saturday July 7 local time.

If for whatever reason you don't want your image to end up in that gallery, you have two options: 1) don't submit at all, or 2) make it VERY CLEAR that your image is not to be taken out of the context of this entry thread. Thank you!

    I woke up when the clock chimed 7, and thought: I have seven minutes to do something cool. I always make coffee first thing, so why not? Here it is, complete with random crumb and #$%!! cat hair on the lens. Adjusted for distortion but not much else.

    As Stan said - no rain today. We managed to fit in a day trip to sunny Stratford, taking a boat ride along the Avon. I think this photo captures a bit of everyhting.

    Here is my 7/7/7 entry. I was driving a friend to the airport and afterwards turned around and went back to take this picture. It's on the corner of Pass Ave and Olive Ave in Burbank across from Warner Bros Studio. I'm a little obsessed with Harry Potter right now. :D

    Hey Nikko, thanks for organizing this fun assignment.

    Here are two I captured today; Can't decide which I like better. You guys tell me and I'll delete the loser.

    1. Look, up in the sky!

    Yes, it's Los Angeles' iconic city hall, or some may recognize it as the Daily Planet Building, made famous in the Superman TV series of the 1950s

    self edit: OK, the boss man has spoken and #2 is the winner. I'll post city hall on the world in pictures site.

    2. Los Angeles Convention Center: photo styled as an architectural rendering and sized in Shay's oh-so-fave 10:4 aspect ratio.

    Gloomy day at the coast
    Taken July 7, 2007 between 7:06 to 7:09 p.m. coastal California time, Latitude 37.6.

    It was just too cold, damp, gray and miserable all day long. I had all sorts of ideas on where to go to take some decent pictures yesterday, but alas, the gloomy day just dampened all enthusiasm. So here's a vignette of my world from my doorstep.

    From top left to bottom right: Looking south. Gray skies, and utility poles and wires. Directly west a zoom of the trees across the highway. My neighbor's Roses (white and red). It "misted" enough last night to leave some puddles. My grandson's thrift store skate board wheel.

    Auspicious Skies on an Auspicious Day
    "Auspicious Skies on an Auspicious Day"

    Monsoon season has started in southern Arizona. All day I was waiting for the perfect 07.07.07 photo moment, and around 7:30pm I was granted my wish. The rainbow was fading fast, I just caught the tail end by surprise. I was in a rush. If only I had checked the camera settings and had taken it off of automated portrait mode it could have been better. I'm not sure what it's focused on, but hey --- it's a rainbow in the sky on July 7, 2007!

    Some friends of mine got married today at Oakland's Paramount Theatre. It is a beautifully restored 1931 Art Deco building designed by Timothy L. Pflueger. I wasn't the official photographer, but you know how it is, I brought my camera anyhow. This is my favorite shot from the day; taken not too long after the (brief) ceremony at about 11:20am PDT. It was dark in there--this was shot at f/1.4 1/50s ISO 1600.

    * short story:

    So Penny and I went up to her horse farm to shoot some photos this morning. We stopped in at quickchek to get coffee. We paid and on the way out Penny drags me over to the scratch off machine. We NEVER play scratch off... only time is at home on holidays or something with family. At any rate... Penny tosses in two bucks and tells me to pick one. We didn't realize but they were all empty on everything except $3 bingos. We didn't have any more singles so Penny waited in line to get change for a 5. Anyways, we get the scratch off, we start driving and i'm scratching away. After I go through the entire thing I look to see what I won. Right off the bat I about s*** myself... I'm like... OMFG we just won $100!!!! I'm getting all excited and I start checking the numbers. As soon as I confirm I go NUTS. I'm like... YEAHHHHHHHHH b****!!! HAHAH!! So then I realized I had three more games to check!! HAH! I don't see anything on #2, and #3. So I get to the #4 game (the big payout game) and I'm looking. Nothing?! So I start checking potential wins and i'm like... wait... the "7"... I got an 18... and wait... I got a 36 too!! s***!!! THATS A "7"!!! WE F-ING WON AGAIN!!!! I check all the numbers again... WE WON ANOTHER $100!!! $200 TOTAL off a $3 ticket!! OMG I called all of my family and told em to go get some scratch off...Laughing.gif. So we rode out $5 of it on another $5 bingo and broke even, then went back to quickchek to buy from the same machine, but they were all dried up. No more scratch off. Anyways... up $197 deal.gif

    7th of July Street
    Taken in Madrid, Spain, 7/7/07 AM. I was walking around the Plaza Mayor shooting pics for this event, when I happened to glance at the street sign of a tiny passageway I have never paid much attention to. It was 7th of July Street and I figured there had to be a message there.

    Longfellow Bridge, Boston

    This photograph of one of the bridges that connects Boston with Cambridge was taken from the Charles River Esplanade just past 7:04 p.m. on July 7, 2007 during an evening walk to enjoy the end of a beautiful, hot summer day. And to take pictures, of course. The wind was kicking up and the skies suggested that rain was on its way, but some folks were reluctant to call it a day and remained on the floating dock near the Hatch Shell to enjoy the evening. The photograph is geotagged. Click here for exif.

    Lost track of the date. When I realized it was 7/7/07 it was already 7pm. As I knew I was running out of light, I grabbed my camera and it had the canon 100mm on it. All I could do was go out into the yard and I took this. It's one of my favorite plants.
