    I've shot two caves; keepers=zero

    What lens did you use, did you use flash? Which cave.



    Thanks, dude.

    That was one of those lucky shots. It's a lava tube on the big island.

    Click on the image above for the exif. I shot it with a Canon S330 (2 megpixel!) and, I was surprised to see, a 1 second exposure. I was on my honeymoon in Hawaii, so I know I didn't have a tripod. I must have balanced it on my knee or perhaps a hand railing. The tunnel is illuminated, evenly as it turns out, so this was not too hard. I've got quite a few lousy tunnel shots myself. They are deceptively difficult to photograph.

    you must mean exotic, right?

    Taken in Cabo San Lucas, ItÔÇÖs the appetizer at the only "fancy" restaurant we ate at the entire trip located right on the docks at the marina and where we had the grass-feed Mexican beef that was flamb?®ed right at our table and that literally melted in your mouth,, drool droolÔǪÔǪ

    The sunset shot had a palm tree. This is my palm.
    At least I didn't post another photo of a sunset. I don't think some people understand 'free association.'

    There is an element of that to be sure.

    Sometimes a photo is followed by something, seemingly so radically different, that it's hard to follow the association (e.g. Burnszilla's palm). Other times someone posts a photo of pretty much the same thing that he's taken at a different time. I find both interesting/amusing. It's fun to say, "Hey, I've been there," especially if it's somewhere unusual.

    The following are ALL great posts. Please note that I am not criticizing or saying that anyone did anything wrong or right. But this discussion is interesting to me.

    Here's a string of photos:

    Burnszilla #255

    Cool shot. Unusual.

    SNC1923

    Different picture. Thematic "marine" connection

    gabentx #256

    Me, too! Cool shot, similar to the one before. Subject matter connection.

    Stuff2C #257

    Wildly different picture, yet quite similar, too. Obvious thematic connection. These posts provoke thought.

    Beemerchef #258

    Me, too! Similar picture, but different, too. Dog playing in water, neither jumping nor in the pool. Subject matter connection.

    torags #259

    Very different picture, people playing in the surf with technology (surfboards). Obvious thematic connection, but a different picture.

    None of these is wrong or less inspired. But it is interesting to note what connection is made and why. Both the literal and the liberal interpretation have merit, of course. I don't know exactly what makes these "free association" threads so appealing, but they really are fun. The one over at dGrin is on page seven-hundred something and going strong. I love mining my photo website. I have nearly 10,000 images, and every time I look at someone's image here, I go to my mental filing cabinet to search for an image that reminds me, in some way, of the one that inspired me. Sometimes it's, "Hey! I was there, too!" Other times it's, "I've got a predominantly orange picture somewhere. . . ."

    I really liked the foot prints in the sand /foot print in the snow segue.

    I've also learned that I have almost no sun rise/sun set pics. But I think the former would involve getting up early!

    Not at all. 293 has tiles and grout and so does 294. I look for the little things in my free association, not the obvious ones.

    Thanks for verifying that. I thought those tiles must be the connection but wasn't sure.
