At the ocean's edge

Taken in Goa, India Feb 2010. It was a bright afternoon and I had no cares in the world. Me and my Turkish delight went down to the ocean's edge and this is a sunshine moment.

Barely makes it
Taken in Ciwidey, West Java, Feb 2010. I was in a really depressed state at that time, so when my friends asked me to join them on a road trip, I agreed instantly despite being short on money. It was worth it. The trip and the beauty of nature managed to revive my spirit somehow.. The crater is usually covered with an eerie fog, but when I got there everything was clear and the weather was perfect.

Rock concert
Guinness Arthur's Day Concert in Jakarta, Dec 2010. It's been a long time since I last saw a live concert. The crowd was great, nice to feel all the vibe and emotions..


My little bubble
Taken in Jakarta, with my Olympus digital camera, just a couple of days ago.
My friends and I were hanging out in a mall and I end up taking some pics utilizing the abundant Christmas decorations in that place. Damn, can't believe 2010's about to over soon!

Of more than 1,000 pics taken this year I decided to summarize it with 3 very simple ones in order to accomplish the general idea of this the last contest of 2010

In Nevada and Arizona I went crazy with Vegas, the High Desert, the Antelope Squirrels and The Grand Canyon, but everyone has seen them live or in pics, so I opted for the simplest one. Just the same on my Florida travels and eventought everybody knows of Niagara Falls I thought the rainbow did the trick. (Now...the vineyards in Niagara On The Lake are fantastic, and pics from there I will post here someday).

All pictures were taken with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1



1) I never win a thing, obviously 'cause I dont like to gamble, but my first ever trip to Vegas in March was to celebrate my 60th B'Day, the night b4 returning to Miami I went down to the Casino and on my second dollar bet I won the $60.00 here enclosed..After the picture I cashed it in and NO more gambling.....Now the best part is that March 5th is my B'date .... and the $60.00 were co-incidentaly equal 2 my 60th celebration.




2) Ave Maria, Florida..Roughly 90 miles W NW from Miami..Picture taken in August inside The Oratory, at the Piazza. The light shinning on Jesus is the perfect beam for this picture (the cross is easily 9 foot tall), and it is the daylight coming into the church from the sunny Florida day outside.




3) Niagara Falls, on the Canadian side. Famous Horse Shoe Falls on a late October chilly but wonderful day of vacations. Is the rainbow goinn up or down ?? That is the question...










Happy Holidays Y' All

This is my first time entering! Be gentle I used a Samsung digital camera for all of these (I can't be bothered to look up the detailed info for it).

I took this first picture in València, Spain on my holiday this past September. This is without question my favorite pic from my vacation in València and Barçelona. This was taken at the Jardí Botànic (Botanical Garden) in València. This pic perfectly symbolizes my love for the city of València; it's perfect, magical, and leaves me feeling peaceful. I can't wait to move there in a couple of years

The Secret Garden


This second pic is from the Torres Serrano in València. Basically, it's an old ass tower that was right down the street from the apartment I was staying in. This was taken at the very top of the tower. This is the flag of València, in all it's glory

Glorious València


This last pic is one of, if not the biggest reason, I went to València. This was taken at Estadio Mestalla. It was València CF v Atlético de Madrid (who I fucking hate :frustrat: For those who don't know what 'morbo' means, it's like 'hate/aggression/rivalry'. There isn't a real translation for it in English. A lot of shit has gone down between VCF and Atléti the past couple of seasons, and the two teams and sets of supporters don't like each other, also taking into account it's a battle for the title of 'third biggest club in Spain').

Morbo

welcome to the contest Loco. Especially like your first pic.
please do me a favour and scale the pics down, they load forever and the last one doesnt even load completely. If you need a place to store them online, www.dropbox.com is a possibility

btw, while Im just talking about, Punkette, can you change the setting on flickr to allow download for the pics you post in the contest? Had to do with screenshot, but it costs time.

Some light play. I have tried to re-shoot some old themes risking a cliche tag. Somehow I associate 2010 with nature.

All pics are taken with Canon PowerShot A1100-IS.

POV of a Myopic Ant (Alanya, Turkey)



Light Rain (A village in my country)



Is it Saturn? (Ohrid, Macedonia)

thanx Loco. Please, mv, resize your pics as well. The loading of this thread slows down rapidly the more users submit their pix in original size.
a width of 600px is optimal to post and it doesnt need to resize everytime to load the page. Thank you!

Sorry, Heike, flickr changed their policy a while back, no downloads But perhaps you could do something with these instructions. Click on the flickr image to open the full screeen. Click "Share Ths" (upper area). Here you can grab the HTML/BB code.

You can also get the image property by clicking "Action", then "View all Sizes," right click the image and post the picture link. Hope this helps.
