This is for 21.gif Posthumous who said, "Here's my challenge to you: put a nonboring photo in this crap challenge."

I really dislike toilet shots. Wouldn't it be ironic if this ends up on my top row. :-/

=====================

Unbelievable! A ribbon, and a toilet on my profile page forever.

To answer the questions: the "thing holding the cards" is a weird Dos Equis mask with a crown on top. I thought it looked rather like a stylized card king crown. I guess the thing on the very top of the crown is supposed to be a big diamond.

The wonderful thing about winning a ribbon is the flood of comments that follows. Thank you all for the good wishes, and in this case, the hardy laughs.

Congratulations on your ribbon, Julianne! I love the colour processing (and I think it's the nicest toilet shot I've seen).

Fascinating processing. This is my favorite so far. The white on white has a neo-animation graphic feel. Best shot of toilet I have seen in years.

Looking through them all again, this is too good not to ribbon.
