    Sorry Greg, I think you got the "wrong end of the stick"! I was refering to Counter's confusion about the word "keester", it's not a word we use over here. I've only heard it on American TV shows.

    I wasn't making a comment about the language used by the OP, I am actually with you on that. If we want to keep this a family friendly place then we do have to have rules for things like this. Not that I was really offended myself, but as you say some people might be.
     
  11. come on guys the English thing sounds funny on this side of the water:wink:

    cute shot

    Keister or Keester comes from the German Kiste which means satchel or suitcase/box. ( I suppose you can sit on a suitcase). The earliest known citation is from an American article on convict’s slang from 1931.

    (Sorry, it's Friday afternoon and I don't want to do any more work this week so I had to look it up)

    Good to know, I am glad that you're taking it easy on this rainy Friday afternoon.

    Despite it's German orgins I don't think I've ever seen it in English print or heard it spoken over here and therefore consider it a very American word.

    :biggrin::biggrin:

    You folks and your words.....

    Actually, the number of asterisks we use are quite random, you never know how many we use to replace a word.

    Back to the image now! :biggrin:

    Matt,

    I really like the shot and the neutral colors all around the subject. Great subject focus. What is that bug on? Almost looks like some type of apple or maybe a cactus? Curious.

    Cheers,

    Wade
     
  15. I'm curious as to the lens set up! This is beautifully close up, and incredibly sharp! Were tubes used in addition to a lens?
