Every now and then I see some form in the chaos that resembles something else, and photograph it. There's lots of faces but this is my first dinosaur.

Great shot great, great find.
I think I would have tried a little softer lighting that hot spot on the side of the head is a bit distracting.
Also try a little less DOF for that BG. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the smile it really helped today.
:wink:

Thank you all for looking at my silly photograph. Yep, it's really just a dust mote on my bathroom floor. Yuck, huh. For you who took the time to comment, here's some snarky back-talk:

Oh wow, that is the extremely rare Lintosaurus Rex!
Taxonomy is good (see below.)

Chris only a very warped mind would see a dinosaur in cat hair.... :lol:
Your point??? ;)

I hope that isn't the bathroom floor in the image. EEEwwwwwww!
It is. I did a series of pictures of my kitchen, but decided not to publish them here - family orientation and all, you know.

Chris, great post. You made me laugh today which is quite a challenge :)
I'm glad. Especially when it's with, not at.

As viewed from the eyes of the young (at heart). Funny Chris.
A lot of my friends have dispensed with the euphamism and just come right out and say childish. ;)

No thanks, I have one. And she's always hunting and draging things in. But I'm gonna have to say, "Bad kitty! Leave the dinosaurs outside!" You know, in a real stern voice.

That's one of those short-sighted dinosaurs...

Ok, so the sweepings paleontologists differ in their identification. More research is needed I can see.

I was running for my life as fast as I could, because even though our dinosaur experts differ on their identification, it's primary use of back legs for transport, the balancing tail, and large jaw mean it's a meat-eater. I didn't have time to do more than focus.

Creative shot, Chris! Thanks for making me laugh!!
Thanks Don, it's not me though, it's the dirt in my house that's really funny.

I hope that didn't come from the top of your head!
You don't want to know where it came from. Oh wait, I just saw your devil guy pic. So you do know.

Laryl said:
LOL thanks I needed that! wonder what I can find... I'll be back!
Hopefully you will have swept more recently than I have.

We know, Chris. We've all seen your avatars :wink:.

Took me a while to see the dino. But I did instantly see a ghost. I think you have your fluff ball photo rotated wrong!
