    The Random Picture Thread

    Prompted by the random disclosure thread, it was suggested we have a random picture thread.

    So, I reckon this is pretty random...



    Only rule is - it has to be your own photo.

    Captions welcomed.

    Chicken

    Why would you take the time to spray paint (badly) the word "chicken" in blue paint?
    This is round the corner from my work and has bemused us for months.

    Most times I carry a camera I have a definite idea what I will be shooting. Other times I have a wander with no ideas but still with a DSLR and tripod, hoping something catches my eye. If I go out with no real intention of taking pictures I shove my G12 in my pocket in case something interests me enough to shoot it, and this is what I would term random. Things like this boot, just sitting on it's own on the pavement......

    I like this one just for the concentration on the lads face keeping his eye on the apex of the corner.

    Taken at W.S.M a couple of years ago

    This lot wasn't here a few days ago and has collected due to the recent heavy rain and subsequent rising of the river level, so it's size and form is pretty random I think.

    The Random Picture Thread

    A couple from this week in Vienna.
    Apologies for the iPhone pics...



    What exactly is catering if it isn't food?

    And some more witty graffiti

    I have a feeling that it's beer-related.

    One from a real camera. A little over-exposed, but rockets are a bugger to capture at all - especially against a dull Scottish sky :-)
