Re: "Your Kind Is Not Welcome Here"

In retrospect, I am glad I never posted it. Do I find it funny still? You bet, but more as a slap in the face of all the PCers that are overly touchy.

Re: "Your Kind Is Not Welcome Here"

That's the whole thing about PC; touchy..... I bet I don't have to tell you we got Panama... Chuck, I hope that fever of yours is long gone. BTW, I enjoy immensely your well thought out and in depth analysis - I read and treasure each of your words perhaps in a similar fashion as I do Duck's words ...

Re: Love, With a Streak of Sirius-ness

Nicely done, with ol' Sirious well positioned above, as if he might fall into the gap between the L and the O. Nice rich colors and details in a deceptively simple composition.

Re: Magpie

I am putting together a tutorial on advanced compositional design, or rather, breaking away from the rule of thirds . It's still in development but I thought I'd share a lesson from that upcoming topic here. Take it for what it is, a discussion, and less of a critique. Thank, Duck for a wonderful l...

Re: Magpie

A couple of folks here have seen this one from last summer. Sorry I didn't think to include it in the textures topic as it has about four textures on it :) Your feedback regarding interest in the subject and pp would be appreciated. I think you handled your texture collection well on this one. I am...

Re: "Your Kind Is Not Welcome Here"

The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum looks wonderful and is and is a needed commentary to the history of our country and those still living in economic and social injustice. To be honest, I'm surprised a museum like this was built in The South, especially at a time when we're tearing down the Confed...

Re: "Your Kind Is Not Welcome Here"

The poor need hope. They need tolerance, they need a pathway to success, they need a dream. They need the very things that our country used to stand for! I confess it scares and disappoints me that the tolerance and dreams and hope seem out of fashion, replaced with bigotry, anger and fear. And it'...

Ouch! Love those needle sharp thorns in the focused front area.

You’re getting the hang of this non ROT stuff.
