      I feel ALMIGHTY here.

       

      The build is done...   An ACT of GOD...   is a heavy command to burden one's self with.

       

      But if you'r going to photograph, an ACT OF GOD..  it should be on the photo days.

       

      HE Commands, in a deep booming voice, coming from out of nowhere..

       

      LET THERE BE FIRE!

      Dang! Now the pressure’s on. Wouldn’t want to upset the Almighty. So, hypothetically speaking, of course, because who can predict these things, if a catastrophic accident were to occur, it’ll be later in the week ...

         Gregory, Dave may chime in otherwise, but I think since you are on the cutting edge of Challenge Creativity, the catastrophe should happen on photo day....the way I see it, you're creating the first ever "Action Challenge." You know ? !

      i must be a clotz.... but i really dont see, where this guy might be connected with art. he does not compose, he does not look at what he does, he simply fills empty spaces with splashes of paint.

      (or was that video about early production of wallpaper?)

       

      edit: ohhh, nooo, now i got it! that guy waethered a Mad Max scenario background!

      Hey guys, I took a bunch of photos with my wife's camera today and I need to size them down for posting. Any recommendations on pixel size? My iPhone is 640 x 480 and the photos are okay but not sharp. What size will this forum accept? Thanks.

      I upload in very large format 2048 x whatever works out, but for the voting thread I will re-sample them at 800 pixels wide so my pictures don't cause the thread to be slow for those not on broadband.

      I'll bet I'm not alone! Time to clean up.

      I had to clean up. The saw was set up in front of the wife's freezer to get out of a puddle from a big rain and she wanted in.  My work bench expands with junk covering a lot of my track and I wanted to run trains so that had to be taken care of. Wood scrap box is still here and a lot of stuff to go to the storage shed is on the floor.

      Now that would be a challenge. 

       I have made a few things out of yogurt cups.
