Re: PICTURE POST II!

Oh goodness, it wasn't anything in particular. I had seen that dessert menu and knew I wanted to include it in a shot. There was a fireplace in the room but after looking through my camera I decided that since there were posts on either side of the fireplace, that would have been too cramped of a shot. So I just set the menu off to one side, made it my focus, and took a picture!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah, I completely agree, cooleddie. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Kes! I love hearing about how others go about taking their photos, especially when the results are this good. I like how the main focus is the menu, but that it's off to the side, too. I think that helps keep the photos more open-yet-cozy.

Kestra, your photos are awesome. That gravestone photo reminds me of one I took in Illinois two years ago of a gravestone of similar vintage...

That's gorgeous! I've been fascinated by so many of the graves here. The stones vary greatly in shape and size. I think I could spend a lot of time just taking photos in a graveyard. Where in Illinois did you take that?
That was taken in the cemetery in Littleton, IL while we were there burying my Dad in Spring 2012. Littleton is about midway between Rushville and Macomb. We also found a stone there dating to 1792, but it was pretty broken up and hard to read.

I also find gravestones to be pretty interesting. Whenever I'm in a graveyard, I try to find the oldest one, the most ornate, etc. On that trip, I took photos of about or so, but most of those were because they were for grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, etc.

Some pictures of a water castle that is just five minutes away by car from my place. Friends of mine celebrated their wedding there a few years back.









The tree reminds me of Game of Thrones. I've got no idea why they painted it white but it has been like that for years now.

What a beautiful place, selina! Your photos really capture that beauty, too. I'm jealous that you have such striking buildings scenery so close to your home!

What a beautiful location, selina! Whereabouts is it? I'm guessing Germany, though I'm probably wrong.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks everybody.

@ CorporalClegg: I'm sure your house looks like this .


@ macloudt: No, you were absolutely right. It is in Germany, located in the federal state of North Rhine Westphalia which is in the western part of the country.

The first water castle was build in the 13th century but burned down to the ground in 1589. The castle was rebuild after that in the 17th century. It houses a small museum today and a fancy restaurant.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

What started out as a joke by a friend of mine has become a bit of… I don't know. He asked me to make him a Captain Picard Doll (Like one from "The Pegasus") which I did. Then came a Locutus (made for the same friend), Kirk, Sisko and now Janeway:
