    Okay, sometimes you've got a photo and, for whatever reason -- you blew the shot. I mean not like a little bit, but like a ton.

    Yet it's interesting somehow. Not what you'd intended, but you can work with it and make something cool out of it.

    With that in mind, I offer my photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. No, really.

    If no I.S. then perhaps DECAF is an option!

    D.... Back in the 60's I found myself in Frisco. It was a time of experimentation, freedom etc...
    The Golden Gate looked like that all the time and to many many at the same time....
    so don't see the image as a blown shot... Well maybe that's how you should see it...

    The above statement bears no meaning to...
    Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll. Any reference you relate to that is purely yours only.

    Seriously, the wind was EPIC. I think if there'd been a small wing on my tripod, it'd carry both of us away.

    Perth is known as 'The City of Lights' but not this many - taken on a cold windy night without a tripod.

    Haha, that's awesome! It looks like someone put a bunch of jewelry in the bay.
