Hiya everyone!

The idea of this little game is to offer your take on a picture posted by the person before you by writing something about it. 
You may choose to write  a poem inspired by the picture, or a single word, or a sentence or two, or a story.

All you have to do is:
* Write your inspirations about the picture before you, and then
* Post a picture for the next person.  Any picture (within Bettermost's image standards, of course  8) )

Hi Julie:

This is a game where we look at the picture (without any description) and then post a comment or poem or something about it. Then we post another picture for the next person to do the same. And each person takes it in turn.

So I'll take your first picture and make a comment on it and add a new picture. Maybe you can add a comment to your firt post about Janice's picture.

Death in Venice - What is she thinking about - her eyes are so dark. Does she hold a key to the murder? Did she do it? Did she see it?

Your pictures are cool though - perhaps you could move these and start another thread?

Sorry--it took me 2 hours to post them; I don't have another two to move them. I tried posting pictures that had nothing (specifically) to do with Brokeback on another thread in this "lighter Side," and got a tongue-lashing for it. Where wouod you suggest I post them? amazon.com (quite a few of them are there, actually!).

Before you remove them, you might notice how many people are looking at them.
Bye.

Thats why I suggested another thread - because they are cool pics!

If you'd like to leave them here, thats fine, but they might get lost in the game, and noone wil see them or be able to comment.

As I'm a moderator, I can move your posts with pics over to a thread of its own where we can all see them and talk about them.  And you can add more.

You just have to tell me what to call the thread and I can do that!

Hello Julie,

You posted some cool pics, that is not in question.  :)
What Kelda is saying is that this is a picture game with the rules she quoted.  You can still post your pictures, but allow the person below you to comment on them.  That is all.

I don't know if you will decide to move your pictures to a blog but in the mean time, the game goes on.  8)

Cheers,
~M

Mama, can I have some bubble gum?
I would like a big handful, they look so yum!
Can I have red and yellow and blue?
I promise I won't use 'em later as glue..

          The Universe is round.  It grew within a wondrous place.
          Tho it inhabits time and space.
          It lives within the fabric graced.
          So lovely, so devine
          This little universe of mine.
