I had some fun tonight wandering around an interesting urban landscape taking pictures ... lots of fun shots.  Hope you agree.

195: The Wolverine

My self-imposed task, inspired by "Movie quote", was to put together a scene from The Wolverine (2013) -- the one that takes place mostly in Japan. So I found my old set of adamantium claws ...

Oh, my favourite Wolverine quote? I couldn't add it to the PG-rated Facebook group ...

"Grow those back."

194: Squares

Tonight's theme was squares. It's funny how many things fit that theme if you only look around; I found all these locations within a few metres of each other in a little house Alex Thaub and I are working on.

193: B is for Begging Bassets

Alex Thaub is traveling and that leaves me at sixes and sevens. I sat by our garage and had a pizza and of course Porky and Petunia had to have at least half. As you can see, I starve them terribly LOL.  Once they see food, their gaze becomes fixed; nothing else exists except those calories. Apparently they are trying to beam thoughts into my mind about going away and leaving the box unguarded. Not a chance!

192: Brokeback Skybox


Like so many of my inspirations these days, this one came from my Snap... Do It! photo group on Facebook.  One of the challenges for early March was to be photographically inspired by a movie, and I just happened to pick Brokeback Mountain. Not a huge favourite of mine (too sad!) but a powerful movie nevertheless.
  Some of the best pictures I got, the stupid sit pose had Alex's hand going through his knee.  Oh well.  What can't be cured must be endured, as they say.  I've included a couple of the reference photos from the film just to show you what I was trying for.

191: Keyhole

The Snap ... Do It! Facebook challenge included "Keyhole -- through something" and I had some fun with different lighting for the same shot, using some of the more unusual Windlight presets.  See what you think.
