Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

Around here people use their weekend-days during spring in garden centres and their weekend-days during autumn at IKEA! (Like mum and I did today).

If these trees had been right in front of the name on the building, not some ad hung from it, it would have been a perfect seasonal image from here...


Still working on finding the perfect avatarable shot

Heh, funny thing is, I saw the blue and I knew it was IKEA even before you said it was There's none around me, but there's a new one in our nation's capital, even bigger than the original one that was there (about 4 times the size or so they claim, and multi-storied), which is hard to believe as I've always found them to be bigger than average stores to begin with. This new one is a colossus in comparison.

If that's what it's like, then go for it! I can just picture lots of people on a busy street with umbrellas.
This is Houston--no one walks anywhere. And I'm not going to go out in the rain to try to take a picture. I'll pass on this one, thanks.
How about a POV shot of the rain through a window, soaked with wistfulness and longing and a burning hatred of precipitation?

Blue is a somewhat crowded part of the corporate logo spectrum. But somehow we seem to recognize the nuance whenever we see one. I find that quite remarkable - and more than just a little scary!

Three or four years ago, when they build that Ikea here in town (tiny town in a tiny country) they said it was the biggest in northern Europe... It is ridiculously big; enough so for entire armies to march in and never bee seen again. Apart from the parking below I think it's only two stories though.

LOL we drifted pretty far off-topic. We need more entries! Don't make me register a dozen duals to get a poll up!

Yep, we do need more entries! I'll either put up a poll on Saturday or Sunday depending on how things go.

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

Only four entries? Kind of ironic, since there are four seasons, but come on, people. Where are the icicles of Winter, the flowers of Spring, and the boys of Summer?

Yeah, was hoping there would be more inspiration. Come on, people, get your cameras out! I'll even extend it to Tuesday.

Re: Misc Av Contest: It's Seasonal!

I just posted a link to here in the weather thread http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=231073&page=4 and invited the folks there to join the contest. Maybe we should give them a bit more time to come up with good pics.
