Yep, the background was a printed picture that I printed on my Canon s800 and then gave to my good friend Langdon Oliver. Thanks for all the positive feedback. For anyone who didn't figure it out, I was suggesting that they put giant forks atop toothpicks and balance them on the space needle to improve the draw of Seattle. I was amazed that I had a salt shaker that looked like the space needle, but apparently, not too many other people were. =] The balancing trick is just an example of physics. No glue used. Thanks again.

Sorry about that. Thought you were Peter. Thought you'd win, too. Shows what I know.

Perhaps you should take up a carreer in architecture.

I have seen more twisted senses of humor from Seattle! Interesting photo...

Heh, it's cute.

The prize for winning three challenges in a row is a Barbie cam - which you have to use for all your subsequent submissions. Doubt it will slow you down any, though.

It's nice to see you use seasalt in Seattle
04/02/2002 10:48:00 PM
is the fork hot-glued to the back and how u get those toothpics to stick at its ends....soft glu?
04/02/2002 02:27:00 PM
Amazing! It's just too bad the needle is off center. I didn't mark you down for that, though.

Is that a post card back there? Nice idea. Different all right.

Must be an Art major or something ... haha

When you live in a small, run-down, non-architectural (is that even a word?) town like my own, these are the kinds of things you have to resort to, lol. This is very clever, though - you get a 10 from me! I love the buildings in the background, too. Nice contrast.

Very exciting and fresh view to an other wise over photographed skyline,.. wonderful depth. good job
04/01/2002 05:50:00 PM
Cute! Great focus and composition. Just a question...is that the real skyline in the background or a photo?
04/01/2002 02:39:00 PM
Fine detail
04/01/2002 12:51:00 PM
I like the compositional contrast.
04/01/2002 11:41:00 AM
You are a machine!!!
04/01/2002 10:03:00 AM
Interesting shot:-)
04/01/2002 09:26:00 AM
Very unique--I like it
04/01/2002 09:00:00 AM
good one

Great picture. I guess it would've been better if the needle was in focus too. Still, the title makes it clear what your intent was. I bet more people would get to Seattle if there were two giant forks placed precariously atop the needle. Hell, it'd even make me watch Frasier.
04/01/2002 07:12:00 AM
very clever : )
04/01/2002 01:54:00 AM
I like it and I'm not sure why. So I won't comment :)
04/01/2002 01:26:00 AM
it makes me laugh; nice lighting; I guess you could have cleaned the inside of the pepper mill-would've been more 'crystalline'; definitely blows up the concept behind the challenge
