Graves, you swine!

Get your eyes checked, perv. That's a table leg.

Rgds,

Still getting used to that camera I see.

David Barber said...

Switch "auto-focus" on. ;-)

Cormac Brown said...

Wow, like I can see through time and stuff...

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, a table leg? You can order one of those at Famous Ray's!

mrmacrum, purposely blurry. Even turned the de-shake n' bake off for the desired effect. Funny just how dark the last few are on this crappy monitor, though. Looked clearer even on the camera itself.

State of Ohio, upgrade me!

david, that's only for purty pictures like the ones you took, not a poorly documented visual foray into bad writing. ;-)

cormac, tonight, we're sending you back to the future!

I believe 'Modern Photography' calls this 'The Mary Ann with the Shaky Hands Effect'. Fine examples of handling the new digital media.

sunshine said...

Very nice! I like!
Are you left handed Randal?

Very cool post actually.... :)

Now you've done it. I'm totally confused.

McGonagall - Was that William or Minerva?

Maybe we could just hook ole Ansel's spinning bones up to a dynamo and power this place.. no?

Randal Graves said...

susan, I'm not sure I'm ready for still lives, but I've been practicing the MySpace gangsta shot.

sunshine, see, someone got it, you bloody wankers. Left-handed? You think I'm some kind of weirdo deviant who should be shunned?

demeur, are you crazy? What will we use to make the tortillas?

sunshine said...

Haha!
I won't answer that question....

The reason why I ask is, you seem to have left your pen (at least it looks like a pen in the last two pictures).. further to the left than someone who is a right-y would.

Two of my kids are right handed and leave pens closer to the bottom right corner of pages. Two are left handed and leave pens in the places where yours (if they are pens..) have been left.

Make any sense? Just something I've observed about them ... :)
That's why I asked.

Oh dear.

The good news is that if you decide to quit being a brilliant writer you have a future as an artist.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine -

Why do you have a phillips head screw driver on top of a manuscript?

Tengrain

Tom Harper said...

Jeez, what weird photography. And on April 20th of all days. Oh, I get it...

S.W. Anderson said...

"Sailed to Burns..."

OK, I'll bite. Would that be comedian George or economist Arthur?

As for the images, if those were your doing, Randal, you must've been smoking something that would put Cheech and Chong to shame. Whew.

Beach Bum said...

Hey, reminds me of my last bad acid trip.

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, no, I'm right-handed, which means if that ever gets cut off by a thresher, I'm screwed.

holte, quoi?

LBR, I hear starving is very chic.

tengrain, how else am I supposed to put verses together, with clever verbal transitions? Sheesh.

tom, that thought hadn't even occurred to me, pothead.

SWA, C. Montgomery, bien sûr. And I'm only high on life.

BB, so, ever swipe any of the good stuff from work? It's alright, you can tell us.

Cormac Brown said...

"tonight, we're sending you back to the future!"

What, The Missus is going to develop a drug problem and will be replaced by Elizabeth Shue??? God, I hope not, nor do I want see Crispin Glover's kicking skills.

Dr. Zaius said...

Is this is a Fellini film? Where are the dwarfs?
