=D

Okay, so here's the story. I'm extremely busy at work these next few weeks, so I don't have time to take many photos... only those I shoot in passing (I shot this on my way home from work today.)

So I was looking through my shots, trying to come up with something, hoping I wouldn't have to shoehorn again =P, and realizing that I was pretty much hitting a brick wall... And then it hit me. =D

I hope you enjoy it... I imagine most DPC'ers won't stop to read it all, but we'll see.

Prediction: 6.2 (hopeful), 5.6 (more likely)

Ha! This is hilarious. Love it. And I am probably going to be one of the ones getting whipped by the snapshot of a brick wall. Oooh I think this is going into my faves list. Good luck. Hope you get whipped by an OOF snapshot without text. (j/k lol).

Too funny, and a great pic of a brick wall, used effectively. I think there are going to be a lot of people who are wondering how they finished below this one. 7

HAHA, great shot of a brick wall, funny title. I would love to see one where one brick is missing and someone is peering through, to give a bit of hope to those who have that creative block.

this is a VERY creative block.

Perfect for this challenge! This was exactly my problem this week. I was trying to come up with an inspirational saying on my own, and I didn't have the sense to look for a list of famous quotes to build on, so I gave up. Creativity 3/3, Technical merit 2/3, Meets Challenge 2/2, Wow factor 1/2 = 8. I fear this may score well, which according to your inspirational poster should make many people give up. Can I get a print of this? :-)

09/03/2007 11:41:01 AM
LOL! Now THIS is funny! Great take on the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 08:12:11 AM
Ha Ha - very creative . . . Actually my entry will probably score lower than this brick wall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 07:44:43 AM
LOL! :-D
That's it, if this scores higher than mine, I quit!

Oh My God....I am so glad I did not enter this challenge because I know I would have been beaten by a brick wall!!! Great shot which turns the most mundane of objects into a thing of interest and beauty and very good text

I give it 7

09/03/2007 07:15:26 AM
aah, i love that irony - and it will hopefully give you a great score. BTW, did you notice the face in the wall above the "A"?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 12:56:56 AM
Funniest entry ever. :-) And for a snapshot of a brick wall, it's really not bad.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 12:44:25 AM
