From our fearless leader, 21.gif posthumous:

"This thread belongs to Team Suck, a ragtag group of militia... um... photographers who compatriate more than compete, more interested in winging than winning, in love than lustre.

We don't let a low score get in the way of a dream!

As our seditious philosophy gained ground, our ranks grew, until we became more than just a team. We became a league of teams in wholesome if not entirely serious competition with each other. And that's the way we all became Team Suck.

This thread is for suckers to commiserate and compete. It can also be used for anyone with questions or comments about the Suck lifestyle. If you do wish to join us, we ask that you participate at DPC for a while to see if sucking really is your style, and we ask that you fulfill whatever half-brained initiation we come up with at that moment."

Rule of Thirds applies to *composition*, not subject.

Join us at our new website dedicated to the suck way of life. Visitors are always welcome; stop by for a cuppa coffee, spot of tea, keg of beer, or photoshop confusion.

Nominate OOBIE or YAPPIE!

Team Suck Policy Statement

21.gif posthumous quote:

"I don't make these very often. In fact, I might never make these, but this is a pretty fundamental policy that I'm talking about, and it's a necessary one for our survival in DPC. It has to do with voting practices. Obviously, we are not responsible for the voting practices of our members, but to go further I'd like to suggest some guidelines for how Team Suckers vote:

- We do not share photos with each other and then vote on them.
- We do not vote higher on images just because we think they were made by a member of Team Suck.
- We do not encourage each other to vote higher for certain types or styles of images. We pride ourselves on our variety of tastes and styles.
- We do not encourage any particular voting method, though we might frown at people with 3.67 voting averages and make grumbling noises.
- The only way we might influence voting is indirectly, by enriching everyone's tastes and opening their minds to what can be beautiful, and this sort of discussion is never about an identifiable picture in a current challenge."

500388.jpg It's a pity I have to be at work today - we have are having one of those rare events in Philadelphia called snow.

The barn, the barn, yay :D

Here's a kitty for the barn cat collection.

the same snow is keeping me at home today.

but I have this lovely barn to give me shelter from the storm.

But it's not heated, so we have to snuggle! (keep your hands to yourself, Jeb)

Cambridge doesn't do snow. It's more like permanent autumn right now. I'm sitting in a library, with a riverside view, and watching people fishing as I put off report writing... There's some willows and a bridge too :)

I'll pop into the barn occasionally to get away. And we can huddle and watch the snow outside too :)
Any chance of getting a fire going somewhere? Or is a barn quite a flammable structure?
(never mind, I can fire-spin outside in the snow anyway, I love doing that :) )

OK, who let the pyro into the barn??? I've got one word for you: hay.
02/22/2008 08:00:30 AM · #7
lol alright, alright, no fire indoors. Could geet a big bonfire going outside once the snow goes away?
02/22/2008 08:11:19 AM · #8
Here's the outdoor firepit. 378872.jpg

what does our barn look like, anyway? is it spooky, like this 535989.jpg or is it a bright cheerful red one, with a big white silo?

I'd contribute a cat, but all I have are spoiled house cats...no tough barn denizens.

I claim the loft! 513409.jpg

I had images of rather old and dark and spooky, but warm and interesting once you enter. With hay and cats :)

Guitars and whisky, anyone?

I had low hopes for my Brown but alas, it's fallen upwards to just bad, but not bad enough. I really did find it fun to shoot for (and yes, I intentionally did things to shoot it the way I did - more later) and really rather like it! I'm still hoping it will go down. And for those keeping scores at the forefront, my last three challenges will average under 5, thank you very much!

Why are you wishing away my snow? I must have been a good girl while on vacation in Florida because I've been rewarded with a beautiful white blanket the day after I returned. YEAH!!!!
Grab camera, go outside, and PLAY.
Sorry, I know ... stop throwing snowballs at me. But ya know ... I love the stuff. My last day of vacation back home and I get the best gift.

You can have my snow. The kids are off today and already fighting. It's only 9:25 AM. We already have two kids over. The others are coming later. I wish I was working today lol.

Peter 21_N.gif Raish, I echo Christian's sentiment that your poem was fantastic. Both you and Don are true wordsmiths.

Thanks to 21_F.gif JuliBoc for a really nice comment on my Brown entry!

I'm in the low 4's, but I figure competition will be stiff.

So this is where everyone snuck off to..
02/22/2008 10:38:02 AM · #21
so we get to live in a barn for now. Just remember to shut the door. I still remember from being a child my mom saying to me shut the door were you born in a barn.

Ok, this just has to be in here:

Beautiful barns, folks! And Christian, when I find the link again, there's a place you can have calendars made. You need to have those barns made up into a calendar!

I'm right there with ya, Don. Apparently you and I interpreted the challenge a bit differently than the rest. Oh well!

Peter, repost your poem in the barn if you would. :-)
