What photo has pride of place in your house?

    Moving away from equipment questions for a while, I was just wandering what
    all of you have hanging in your place, and which of your photos holds the
    number one position.

    Mine is a photo of a hockey goalie (my gf) standing just in front of the
    goals awaiting a penalty corner. Unfortunately this version (link here)
    lacks a bit of the punch of the print, but it is now printed and framed
    above the mantle-piece (and my gf doesn't mind it because it doesn't show
    her face). It replaces an aircraft pic that I took back in '99, which has
    now moved over to over the wine rack.

    So what's yours?

    Well, I've got this really nice 10x15" candid portrait I took of my GF
    while she was trying out one of my cameras. Unfortunately, she won't let
    me hang it up.
    There's something quite surreal about being a photographer with a
    beautiful girlfriend who doesn't want anyone but me to see the photos I
    take of her. Weirdly, she will sometimes (very rarely!) give me the okay
    to use one, but it'll usually be the one that I think shows her at her
    Women! Aargh!

    Mine is a young girl in Thailand womens refude doing some intricate cross
    stitch, sitting in a patch of sunlight leaning against the door - really
    peaceful. The other is a Thai ricefarmer (woman) sitting in a pile of rice
    chaff while having lunch.

    I have never printed a pic out, mine are only viewed from my DVD player (it
    can read SD/CF cards or dorect of a DVD-RW I have compiled) or on my PC or
    Pocket PC.

    I have a photo of some castle ruins I took in the Scottish Highlands back in
    '97. I was driving along the road between Ullapool and (I think) Lochinver,
    and there was nothing between the towns except grass, craggy mountains, and
    low lying grey clouds. It was a really desolate landscape. Drove around a
    corner and there was the ruins of Castle Ardvrek. It amazed me to think that
    once upon a time someone lived in such a barren inhospitable place.

    a well lit portrait of one of my cats perched on the railing of the deck
    with warm afternoon sunlight reflecting off the window acting as
    "fill-in"lighting" (the little Bugger looks so innocent!) Soft dark out of
    focus background,due to my glorious 180mm 2.8 Nikkor lens.

    I've got two. :)

    The first is a fairly old picture I took in the Powerhouse Museum of the
    underside of a plane: http://hardy.dropbear.id.au/photos/random/RFDS.jpg
    The large print size (18"x24") shows up a little of the grain, which is
    unfortunate, but otherwise I quite like it.

    The other was a quick chance shot of a derelict truck:
    http://hardy.dropbear.id.au/photos/random/needs_work.jpg .
    I guess I like it for the really vivid colours, that don't quite come
    across in that scan too well.
