    You know CyMek I like that pic...but I loathe that plant! That pic kinda has an old timey nastalgic feel... while the plants seeds stick to you and are very annoying to remove.

    If you think you had it bad, I had to lay down in a field of those things to get the shots I did. My legs were full of little sharp spines. If you want something softer to go with the soft tones though, maybe this is more your pace:

    is that a recumbent bike?
    if so, what's the point of those things? is there a specific reason you might want one?

    It's a HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS (the colour is custom ) to be precise.

    The point of these things ?
    To move from A to B as comfortable and fast as possible while not getting stuck in traffic. ;)

    And the specific reason I wanted one ?
    It's one hell of a ride and it is more fun than cannot be explained if you haven't driven one of these before.
    It's like a go-kart, except I am the engine myself ;)

    (oh ... and I know one could buy at least one used car for what this one cost ... though it costs less to maintain even though insurance was a bit high )

    You need insurance to ride that bike?
    Bikes are huge over here! I see guys riding all sorts of crazy bikes on campus including the one you have. I have to admit that I have never had the pleasure of riding in one.

    Looks like the last thing I'd see people ride around here.

    well.
    Kanada doesn't count.

    I have always wanted to try a recumbent bike but I don't know anyone that owns one.

    If someone rides one of those around here, theyll be tagged "handicapped" in no time.

    Yes. Which is more appropriate.

    There is something very creepy about this shot. I like it the processing!

    You don't need it to ride, but it's insured against theft and damage which seemed like the sane thing to do given its cost.
    //

    :lol: ... it was my attempt at photographing my new bike :D
    So it's valid here, is it not ?

    they'd be the ones that would be handicapped in no time if they did that ;)
    then again I don't give a *beep* about what others think. The bike is simply too fun to ride for that to matter.

    That big chunk of skin missing from your hand, top left below your thumb - don't suppose that spider has got anything to do with it by any chance?

    I can't say for certain what caused it becaused such things were routine for me with hobbies like caving, rock climbing, and dirt biking. However Spiders have 2 fangs, they inject a liquid that liquifies their prey's insides then they suck said insides out, so a spider couldn't cause that sort of scratch.

    Little known fact, those 'Golden Orb' or 'Garden' spiders as they are also called, are some of the most docile spiders, if not the most docile, there are. They bite less then Lady Bugs.

    BTW Cymek I realised what exactly the first pic reminds me of: early national geographic nature photography, say circa 40's -to mid 50's. If I had taken the second one I would have had to remove the powerlines with photoshop. For some reason I find them distracting.

    Don't listen to The Hair.
    His Kanadien logic is inherently fallible.

    actually it's funny because someone in the Stuff You Just Bought topic recently said "I thought this was the photography thread."
