Anyhow, we had 10 posts this week. For those of you who are statistically minded, Butler informs me that since January we have been averaging 12.438 posts. We had a low of 7 for "Favorites" and a high of 17 for "Tops".
This week, not only did we have some great photographs but we also had some great historical comments to go along with them.
Jama's piece on the Fullerton Hotel
included this wonderful night shot.
(Hooray for tripods!)
Pauline's Maori Chief - powerful
(Looks like someone from the NBA)
Don't forget that February 6 is Waitangi Day
Ginger gave us interesting history on the Custom's House
BUTLER: "Wait a minute, Mark! Don't we have a rule that we only post 6 pictures for the Spotlight? I count 7 pictures for Ginger alone!
"No," I explain. "This is only one picture -- a picture I took of my computer screen when Ginger's post was on it. What I really liked about this post was the collage - the relationship between the different pictures and their tilted angles. I'm going to claim that a collage, even if it includes several photos, is only one image."
(I was torn between this and her caboose
with the words "Memory Junction" on it)
But I once had a Lionel train like this...but smaller.
Continuing with historical transportation--
Ann's museum plane.
And I really appreciated Kim's sharing of personal history
(It put a lump in my throat)
Next week we have the theme - "Rule of Thirds."
BAGMAN: "I hate rules!"
"Think of them as guidelines," I tell him.
BAGMAN: "What are they, anyhow."
"I'll probably Google them although I have a pretty good idea what they are. And I suspect we might get some real good information from Rebecca sometime this week."
Keep shooting, everyone! See you Friday.
