    Hey, D-Mac, your camera's auto-focus is crook - the hand is sharper than
    the camera! and as for the ankles, forty years younger with a fine gold
    chain around would be a hell of a lot sexier than those. They look like
    my mother-in-laws!

    D-Mac has finally realized that even pics of other people's wedding
    pics on cheap P&S cameras are better than what he shoots straight from
    the camera. I've also heard that most brides have restraining orders
    keeping D-Mac at least 50m away at all times so that might explain why
    he got the back row seat.

    That's actually quite a decent photo - well done.
    Both your photo, and the picture in the viewscreen, are
    better than pictures of filing cabinets and one-legged grooms.

    I've never taken a picture of filing cabnet in my life.

    Your eyes and brain (you do have one I presume) need to be syncronised.
    I can do the job for you really cheaply if you like. Just send the
    fried remains of it (your brain) and I'll stick it in the microwave for
    a while. The results would just have to be better than the shit you use
    for brains now.

    Most people who voted for that wedding portrait you call "one legged
    groom" which resulted in it getting a "special mention", were
    interested more in the romance of the photograph than how the groom
    used his leg to prevent the wind from blowing bride's dress over the
    edge and getting it covered in fish bait... But then you can always
    take better photos than me, can't you?

    Maybe not, but you've sure posted one as yours. And I got the pic to
    prove it.

    BTW, it's "cabinet."

    No Bret... It's actually "Chest of draws". Not cabnet or cabinet.

    You, like the fuckwits obsessed with me seem able to invent
    descriptions for everything you imagine you see. I suppose if you try
    to find faults in postage stamp size images, you'll make those sort of
    blunders all the time. Don't let facts get in the way of your story,

    The chest of draws with the rest of the gifts on top, contained the
    bride's new wardrobe... It was one of the gifts from a Paris clothing
    designer... Only a jackass like you would think: Ah! A filing cabinet
    in an exclusive Brisbane club. It's Brisbane Bret, Not Chattanooga.

    You probably wouldn't know unless you bothered to look it up before
    jumping to conclusions that the "Rugby Club" where that wedding took
    place cost the groom, (a wealthy Brisbane restaurateur) over $30,000 to
    have it close for his private party on one of Brisbane's really big
    days... "River Fire".

    Your problem (Well one of them anyway) is like the trolls and sheep
    waiting with their tongue’s hanging out for me to post another photos
    so they can do some more masturbating. You've got no brains, no
    intelligence and no talent. Surely your mother or sister told you you'd
    go blind if you didn't stop?

    All the lot of you have a huge dose of jealousy for an old fart who
    even today, runs rings around the lot of you.

    Why you'd be jealous of me is beyond my comprehension but flattering
    just the same. These huge complements you give me every time you pour
    shit on my photos are gratifying for me... Is your orgasm after doing
    it gratifying for you too?

    Get over it Bret. Not even spending money on a new cameras is going to
    make you a good photographer... Just more of a loud mouth from the back
    woods of some backwater joint in a country rapidly heading for third
    world status. If the news reports are anything to go by'll happen
    sooner rather than later.

    Shit Bret... Page after page after page of 'em. Which one is your house?

    You're serious, right?

    If you're posting a grammar or usage flame, at least get the spelling right,

    If you possibly can...

    Doug has shown no previous signs of a sly sense of humor, but it
    really is difficult to think that he thinks "chest of draws" is
    correct. Unless, of course, he learned the term from a Bostonian who
    would at least say it that way.

    Good thing the piece wasn't an armoire. I hate to think what he would
    have come up with for that.

    No, it's cabinet as in "steel filing cabinet" like the one behind the
    wedding cake in your infamous "Wedding Cake / Filing cabinet" shot.

    I'm sure most of us remember that one

    Don't bother, D-Mac. You couldn't afford it.
    Annika1980, Feb 5, 2009
  19. Instead of "R moiré", shouldn't it be, "We Be Moiré"?

    Ha, ha ha.... Amazing Stuff.

    You who are possesed with the demons at night and awake with haunting
    memories of what you did yesterday in the quest to survive are the real
    sufferers. May God have mercy on your soles!

    We who wake up from a good night's sleep and greet the world for the
    first time every morning and embrace the new experiences we are about
    to discover as if it were the first time ever, are the truly gifted

    It's our reward for having been nice to our mothers and fair to others.
