    Mine was a shot of a winged horse landing in a meadow on the southern flank of Mt Rainier. The light was subdued; it was early morning, and the sun was just appearing over the horizon. It was a lovely image. But the damned horse was moving, and that POS disposable camera doesn't have a fast enough shutter speed to deal with something like that. In all likelihood it came out blurred. I may as well have shot it with a Holga.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    It's disposable alright. This group quickly disposed of two of them. *L* In parallel.

    So did you nail the Pegasus? A picture of the head and shoulders hanging on your den wall would go far in substantiating your claim.

    Yeah, I nailed it. The shot, I mean. Of course, it's lost somewhere in Tennessee...

    My shot was of a brace of unicorns pulling a sleigh driven by a wizened leprechaun. It will be hard to replicate

    Mine was a sun hat. Yes, a child's sun hat lying on the grass, forgotten long ago. And in the background, a picnic table amidst the trees of an old apple orchard. But it was not just the forgotten hat you see, it was the meaning of life, love, and death. All of it. Finally. Revealed.

    And now...lost again.

    But a Pegasus, a leprechaun, and a brace of unicorns are pretty cool too. Sounds like the beginning of a joke...

    Oh the memories that camera holds.. those artistic wonders.. lost but not forgotten..

    Mine was a simple but tastefully done nude self portrait.. and I had promised myself I would only ever do it once...

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Just to clear up any confusion, my last post was intended for comedic effect and had no bearing on reality!
