My pleasure, Heike; and I hope you had had a good summer. Now I'm certain you have something for this topic (hint: I've seen them )

Yeah, we got the message.

The temple of Dendur, a 3,500 year old example of fine Egyptian craftsmanship. The ancient hieroglyphs tell of a sacred ritual related to the Pharaoh's worship of the Gods. It remained untouched for millennia, until 1819 when Mr. Politi found it necessary to carve his name right over it.



The not so subtle art of seduction...

Earlier this year a new neighbor moved into the apartment next to mine. A single woman in her late 40's. It soon became clear that she was interested in me, but after he attempts at small talk failed she tried to send me the message a bit more direct... by putting up a collage with topless pictures of herself on the wall of her balcony.



Say what?

Communications equipment with a 'do not touch sign'. For all those moments when you don't want people to get the message.


Mercedes bastard & Limburger-loving schmuck

1) Post Office Bay

When you want to send a postcard from Galapagos, this is the Post Office! Just deposit your Postcard there, the next one going to that country/city will take it with him... question is will someone from that place come there? And when? And will he take your card with him? Will your message ever be received?

This is at Post Office Bay at Floreana Island of Galapagos. Taken with Canon Powershot A530 and posterized with ShowFoto/DigiKam.




2) Lighthouse


a lighthouse on Hiddensee Island of Northeast Germanys Baltic sea coast sending out something else than just ordinary light? Taken with my Canon Powershot D10.



3) Lunch!

this is in an animal park in Northern Germany. These guys listened the noise of keys in high expectation for their food. The message was received but interpreted wrongly. Unfortunately for them, their neighbours (penguins & pelicans) were luckier that time around. The shot was done with my Canon Powershot D10.

Great images, Boyo and Heike Everyone, please, submit your photos!

Heike, I can't mention specifics (after all, I try to be fair ) but there are many, one of your former avatars, for example.

haha you cant make me curious first and then deny telling. But I have an idea which one you mean. At least thats the only one I remember to have had it as an avatar. Cant use that one though as it was already voted on. Need to check my images again... maybe I can still find something fitting to the topic...hmmm this one is really hard.

1. Orient
A roadsign in the village of Orient (Mallorca) says that you're not in the village of Orient


2. Window sign
Detail in Mandiri Museum's window in Jakarta shows important dates about the building when it was still belong to the Nederlandsche Handel-Maatschappij.


3. Be honest, don't dive?
This is my highschool's football field. I actually took this photo to show some friends about the current grass condition (the field was often baldy in the past ). I think the 'be honest' message has something to do with the mid tests going on atm, so the sign is intended to all students, and not just for those playing football I cropped and change the contrast of the pic in this one.

Oh le le, oh la la.. Ser del Barça es, el millor que hi ha!!

OK.

1. Warning! Only in Florida would they need to post a sign warning people of the dangers of dangling the kiddies above the 'gator pen. Taken at Sunken Gardens theme park (a very white trash Disney World), located in St. Petersburg on the west coast of America's prodigious genitalia. If you go, do not miss the Life of Christ wax museum and the world's largest gift shop.
Taken with an obsolete Olympus Stylus that some poor sap lost, which I repurposed as mine very own.

2. Mao over Mission Street. Back in those heady pre-Iraq war days of yore, I went to take some snaps of anarchists performing their usual dumb pantomine for the delectation of press and police, but I didn't get anything good (the black mask boys being well behaved that day for some reason). Walking back home, I looked up and saw this giant poster of Mao in somebody's window.
Taken with Nedd Ludd's Canon EOS Rebel 2000, with the real Agfa black and white film you can't get no mo'.

3. Whilst on a lovely ramble on the bucolic byway which stretches from the Menin gate to the site of the batles of Ypres, in West Flanders, working really hard to get lucky later on, birds singing and the air thick with tumenescent promise (look it up), I unfortunately saw this park bench. West coast OG, sucka! Ha ha and ha. Ruined the atmosphere, though.
Taken with an old HP Photosmart 435 (3.1 MP, bitchez!), surely the Triangle Shirtwaist Company of the coming techno-holocaust.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

There's a 100 KB max on each attached file. You may have to make the image(s) smaller or publish/point to a photo-hosting site. Good luck.

We want your pictures, Heather!

I'm pretty sure each is no more than 40 kb each. I'll try again. Also, I have been wanting to open a Flikr account, so I will attempt to do that. The pix don't quite live up to the delightful descriptions I gave them (I likes meeself), but they are definately worth a look.

Hey.. wassa? cool? k.

The beach is at the end of my street only 4 minutes walking from my house, however I barely take a walk to get some fresh air there.. today I did and took some shots with my Sony Ericson cell phone for the sun set:

1- The end is near.



2- I said the end is near.



And that`s the dog I saved not so long ago and almost go to prison for .. He`s my friend since and I always feed him and take care of him.. he doesnt like staying indoor though, he prefers the street and the beach.


3- Cutiness worthy going to prison.




Isnt he worth it?

That`s all folks!, if I win send me my gift in cash, or buy me some PS3 new games.

cheers!
