You are amazing. The quality of many images here is extraordinary and, despite the Friday facetiousness that follows, I learn a lot from you and enjoy it. To cap it all, there’s a lot of thought going into finding the aphorisms, the lyrics, the choice of poem and finally the title in the posts I have to come to enjoy so much.
I wouldn’t presume to rival any of you as a wordsmith, not even our recently Front Paged Brian [photoblog.com] (congratulations, by the way), to whom a punning challenge has been issued. I don’t dare place myself anywhere near the same league as the talented and enormously erudite Photopoet [photoblog.com]. But I thought I’d use your creativity as inspiration, if only to find an appropriate title for my latest oeuvre which you have enjoyed above and in which, for once, Photoblog has kept the colours exactly as I wanted them. So here goes:
Candidate titles for the picture above
Eskimo sex: my first title, because I have a single-digit mental age
Inside of a ping-pong ball: a hommage to the stunning vertical panorama created by the talented Memphis [photoblog.com]. As you can see, this is another vertical panorama. I hope I got the stitching right, Mr R.
Whiter shade of, er… white: there’s probably a copyright issue with Procul Harum and I didn’t want to chance it with a gradient layer. A tip to younger music lovers: never trust a band with an ungrammatical Latin name
Full Frontal: my friend Yellodog [photoblog.com] doesn’t like variable focal-plane shots. I hope you’ve noticed that this shot was taken f/11 using a prime lens. I think you’ll agree the depth of field is even throughout and that there’s no corner softness
The Technicolor dream coat –a negative for Stevie Wonder: if it works for Barack Obama (or Michelle, rather. No, on second thoughts, it worked for Barack), then it works for me. This title is for my friend Kazshots [photoblog.com] who was once rash enough to ask for technical advice and has regretted the regular barrage of techno-gabble I send her ever since
Two bare bottoms covered in Tippex: for Claude [photoblog.com] and RoberttheBob [photoblog.com] and their “dancing” alter ego – pas besoin d’en dire plus… but your posts have informed and entertained and moved me
White Fang, known in French as Croc blanc: my friend Tomie [photoblog.com], a French poodle (no, really, he’s French) unlike other dogs, is definitely not colour-blind. Needless to say, he’s white. This is a high-key portrait of him with his eyes shut. I may have blown the highlights a tad
And finally, a song title:
Should I Stay or Should I Go: i.e., stop wasting your time.
To those I’ve mentioned/insulted here, my apologies. Of course, I’ll remove the link to you as soon as you tell me. To those who haven’t been singled out – Afroditi, Dragana, Dreadwear, Eric, Jan, Jas, Jeff, Terry and many others - consider yourselves lucky. But to all of you, this is my Friday tongue-in-cheek way of saying “thank you” for making my life richer and more enjoyable. Have a good weekend. I look forward to seeing your posts on Sunday.
P.S. To the Greek police officer kind enough to post a suspiciously idiomatic English comment to my March 25 post, thanks for making me laugh all day. Elwood posted a reply in the comments – but it may have been his brother Jake.
