    About four or five years ago, we actually had snow in Houston--a pretty rare event.


    Next up: something to do with/related to fire

    Will this do?

    How about views that tell you you're nearly home.

    I took this picture today. I walk home over the Williamsburg Bridge every day, and this is some of my favorite graffiti. While home is still technically another 45 minute walk from this spot, this is the point right about when you enter Brooklyn, which is home:

    Next, something in a line or row.

    Next, something you would find in a park or in a street scene.

    I took these pictures of my nephew at the wading pool in Lincoln Park in Seattle this July. I couldn't decide which was cutest, so here are both:

    I wish I'd caught a picture of him "snorkeling." At its deepest, the pool is maybe a 1.5 feet, so the little guy would get down on his knees and elbows and stick his face under the water and crawl around so that all you could see above the surface was his little butt and the snorkel!

    Next, something shiny!

    it is really odd, thestrangequark, your photos are fine on my computer but appear upside down on my iPad, no-one else's photos appear upside down on my iPad.

    This is quite shiny

    Next up - someone taking photos.

    HAHAHA...We just went over that in the Picture Thread! I have no idea why it happens, but it happens to me and a few other posters too! The photos are right way on my computer but upside down on my phone!

    Oh, and I have a good one for that. This is a picture my mother took of me taking a picture in Mumbai:

    I just got around to checking this myself, and it looks fine on my Android phone. :shrug:


    Wow, I haven't seen a photobooth in decades.

    Looks like we're all cowards about our old photobooth pics.

    I have a great one from several years ago but it's a very cheap, black and white strip and my crappy, tiny scanner can't handle it very well.

    There are still photo booths around---some at local malls, and now you can even rent them for parties. If I ever have a big, blow-out shindig like that, I would totally get one.

    Yeah. I usually see one time to time. They tend to be in malls, shopping areas and amusement parks/fairs.

    I have dozens of photo booth pictures! What's wrong with you people?

    Okay then, here's the most recent photo booth picture I have, though I wish other people had some! (Me, mom, and sister this past July.)

    How about a Santa's Lap picture instead?

    I don't think I have ever seen a photo booth though, many years ago, my sisters came home with photos taken in one.

    It's been a while since I last heard that. Thank you :)

    Ahem, you do know I'm female, right?
