    Surprising shot! I could almost feel the dots.

    Stupid question for you poes, but recently I kept having a 500 error on one of my websites and oddly enough it went away when I cleared the browser cache. Have you tried that?

    I like that. For some reason, it looks vaguely extra-terrestrial.

    That Kiosk was actually constructed by Aliens; after the Roswell incident(1947). It is a secret portal back to their planet through a "quantum transport" device.
    Did you notice that Velcro was "invented" shortly after those aliens crashed to Earth(1948)?? I am suspicious about that!!

    Ah yes, but we know where that came from, don't we. Yes, it was aliens, but in this case the Vulcans.

    I hope you all apreciate the pain I am going through to get this photo. I have been bitten all over from the top of my head down to my ankles. How do the little buggers get though clothing to bite you?

    Always good to see an artist prepared to suffer for his art, @Rubble .

    Er ... what is it? (Looks like a mushroom to me, but I've never known them to bite.)

    Whew! Good to know that it wasn't the mushrooms biting you. Had me worried there. I was thinking "oh gosh, the end IS near!"

    Great shots... both sides.

    Found my favourite... this is from a long time ago using an old Olympus camera that had a wonderful macro setting

    bw-eye.jpg

    Can't find the original at the moment... this one has been downsized by facebook....

    TERRIFIC photos. From Mushrooms to Retinas.
    @j00lz ; welcome to Sitepoint and we hope you will share more of your great photography with us. {I like how the pupil blocks the camera in the reflection; it looks as though your hand it 'grabbing' the pupil}

    Here are two of my pictures. The first one is a spider taken on the island of Naxos Greece.

    The next one is a butterfly from Methoni in Messinia Greece.
