where am I: on the way to the Mall!

I've wanted to do a picspam meme for ages, and now I finally have a decent camera with which to do it. So here goes:

What would you like me to take a picture of? Within reason, of course, it's not like I can photograph the Eiffel Tower or anything. Y'know, the usual stuff you'd ask for in picspam memes.

Also, I'll do a Q&A pic meme. Ask me a question and I'll answer you with a picture, which might be something I take or something I find online. I've never seen one of these done, so ask away! The more people who ask, the more fun it'll be.



Also, I just noticed (well, okay, I noticed hours ago, but I had to sleep!) that the picture in my modified meme wasn't showing up from my flist.

Go look at him because he's pretty. If I'd met him before I got married, well. Especially if he had all those qualities written below him. *sigh*

Bleh. Now I've got to go to the Mall and I don't wanna.

It should work now. I thought I fixed it before, but apparently LJ didn't agree with me. :/

Yes, all better and very pretty indeed. Bad LJ, messing with you like that.

He is very pretty. I want to call him Jack because I like the name Jack, but he looks more like a Chris. Alas.
the day you left was just my beginning

You should take a picture of Nibbles, just because. Why did I almost type Nipples?

Take pictures of your apartment.

Taking a picture of Nibbles will be a Challenge. I have to remember where the place is that I can go right up to him. New England Pest Control, I guess.

Why did I almost type Nipples?

Because Dr. Freud commanded it, my dear. *poses seductively*

Not entirely related to your post (Ok, not at all), but given your interest in the Passchendaele project, I thought you might like this snippet of confirmation/news written today about Paul visiting war veterans:

[...]And he did appreciate Gross' words in his speech where he said it's time Canada "boasts our military history."

Gross has got that right. In all my years as the Night Scrawler I'd never met the Due South star but I was impressed with him yesterday and his devotion to our veterans. He was telling me next year he's going to film a World War I movie he wrote on the story of Passchendaele, where so many Albertans fought.

His own grandfather fought in that battle which Canada made such a mark at. That's going to be interesting to watch for. It was a real labour of love for Gross who said "I have been working on it for 10 years."

It's going to be a big feature film for the theatres and sounds like the kind of thing Canadians can embrace. It's a Canadian-made movie, about Canadians, made by a guy in Gross who doesn't just talk about doing things but actually does them. Perhaps when he's done he will come back to Sunnybrook and give the veterans a screening.

I don't know which pleases me more, that this film is actually going to be made, or that Paul is The. Biggest W00bie. In the world. *loves*

Take a photo of an object that is meaningful to you but looks absolutely ordinary; explain why it's meaningful.

Yes, that is one pretty boy. Who is he?

Picspam: Your front door, your pet(s) if you have any, your favorite coffee/tea mug (or other thing to drink from), your favorite fannish possession, your media shelves.

Alas, it is nobody I know. I got him from Gettyimages.

My favourite fannish possession, hmmm. I'll have to think some.

My question that you must answer via picture is, "How far are you willing to go?"

Good question. Could have lots of answers, depending on the context. :)

A couple of weeks ago there was a big 'social experiment'/fun game for listeners of BBC Radio 4's programme PM where they had to take a photo of whatever they were doing at 5pm (when the show comes onto air). Noone was meant to go out of their way to do something interesting but just record their life at that particular time on that particular day.
The programmers were expecting about 500 photos from their listeners...they ended up with over 10,000.
Maybe you could do something similar - just record whatever you are doing at a certain time on any given day, so maybe you could take one picture of your world each hour so we can see how it develops throughout the day (hee!).

The link to the PM pictures is here (Here is one gallery, there are currently about 30 and they are still trying to put them up). The results are oddly poignant:

Q+A pic meme question:

What's something (someTHING, not someONE) so beautiful that you can't help but stop and stare?

Pls to be showing most extreme item and/or dramatic colors in your home.
