Let us have an OC thread.
1. You took the pic or were present (so selfies OK!)
2. You find it interesting for ANY reason.
A brief caption would be nice too.
Here is my wife next to the base of a fallen redwood in Humboldt, CA.
Here is a car I used to have. Fast, well built and kind of boring.
Big Dipper Photo I took. Intentionally blurred out cause I like how it looks.
-Mt. Rainier, WA
Half Dome in Yosemite taken from Glacier Point. The little specs atop the protruding lip are people.
Thank you, This was my second time shooting astrophotography and what I didn't know until after this shot is if you hold the shutter open longer, the sensor warms up and this causes hot pixels which look like stuck pixels.
It was very cold. A couple of family members are in the distance.
Took these pics with my cell phone.
It was a tip to BC
Early morning near Banff. For some reason this pic looks b/w without any editing.
Kezar Stadium in San Francisco. The 49er's played here in the 60's, as well as a lot of local acts (Grateful Dead, Santana etc) and even Zeppelin.
Perhaps most famous for the scene in the original Dirty Harry where he shoots the hood in the leg at the 50 yard-line.
From atop Coit Tower, San Francisco.
Can you spot the nude sunbather?
Amsterdam. The Buldog. The first coffeeshop.
Because all tourists want to go there.
Ans it's so boring
I was in amsterdam on new years for the first time in my life. I was really blown away, so many people, so many waffles and weed. Dunno how it is on regular days.
just a picture i took on my summer job in Amsterdam, the last two days of the job it was raining like this non-stop
i had to inspect and register all the bicycle racks, benches and dust bins for the local municipality (Amsterdam West).
A few smaller governmental bodies were merged to form A'dam West and for some reason none of them ever had a single database of the street furniture they placed over the years, thus a company was hired to register said furniture.
it was quite a detailed job, and mistakes were easily made due to copying pasting and forgetting to edit stuff
everything i encountered that was a bench, bin or bicycle rack had to registered and i had to remove the old registrations
-every registration had to be pinpointed on the map(the software had a map divided by .5x.5 metre grids)
-choose type of street furniture(bench/bin/rack)
-select specific model of furniture(i also had to contact the boss a lot to tell him i encountered a new type not yet incorporated into the system)
-state of paintjob
-is the object
-maintenance required(this was a yes/no, but every other category except the ones regarding what kind of object it is was judged on a scale of 1 to 4, 4 being the worst. if any category scored a 3 or 4 maintenance was always a yes and i had to include a picture and a description)
the last bit sucked ass because the PDA i worked with was slow as all hell, and uploading more than 5 pictures per hour caused it to freeze. which sadly meant it was time for a break or i had to remember to return all the time
>forgot the picture
>the only supervision i had was that my boss could see how many points(individual racks/benches/bins) i registered per day, he couldnt even see how many per hour i did
>this allowed me to take a break whenever i wanted
>i got to bike around a lot and pick wherever i started working every day, as long as i finished a predetermined area every week
>listen to music all day long, discover new artists and such
>piss of friends by taking pictures of my interesting job when they were stuck in supermarkets or greenhouses
>i got payed 9,50€ net per hour
>more often than not i worked only 6 out of 8 hours i clocked every day
>on my last day i got payed double by the boss because it was my birthday even though i went home at 2pm
Wrong my friend, mellowyellow was the first in Amsterdam, the Bulldog just claimed it as a tourist attraction, you pay way to much for bad quality green in a theatrical enviroment...it is great you travel so much but please dont believe the lies...groetjes uit Deventer..
The bus ride from cusco to lima, most scenic bus ride ever
100 internet cookies if somebody recognizes where this is.
Photo of weed taken from my phone. I think it looks alrght and thats good enough for me
Not much to say about this one.
Pulled out of a Costco and liked the atmosphere.
If it's too blurry for you I took it when I was in the back of a moving car.
Not London. Although this city does have its share of Anglo features, including a market building whose entire iron frame was built in England and then shipped and assembled onsite.
I once cooked chicken curry and flat breads all from scrap.
I was pretty fucking happy too.
Also fuck you haters.
Here is Michael Schenker singing items for money after a show at a small club.
Santa Clara, CA
Morrison's grave at Pere Lechaise Cemetary, Paris. Fans still leave a lot of stuff here. Even for a cemetery, this place is extremely creepy. Highly recommended.
Same Picture but i tried a bit with CC
unfortunately i did not take raw pictures
Took this set of photographs in june of 2012. it is a panorama of broadway from rector street with trinity church on the bottom of the frame, through to E10th st where you can see grace church, and beyond. photoshop at the time had a hard time stitching them together.
I just rediscovered them today after recently trying out microsoft ICE.
ICE can handle it, and generated a panorama 19601 pixels high. so I split it in two, added compression to keep it below 8MB (I think that's the limit) and will upload in two parts.
if anyone is interested I suppose I can upload the full 6922x19601 126MB jpeg to mega or something.
i just noticed it really fucked up the trinity church. oh well, the street looks intact which is what I was aiming for.
