We, your noisy upstairs neighbors, found ourselves one day with an exceedingly large amount of time which we were using for monitor the financial markets, the US Elections, learn new languages, clean the Loft of Love, do up our Christmas Cards, ring up old chums, volunteer to help dullards read, raise chickens, March for Tibet and we wondered why we had not been doing this all along.

Then in panic, it occured to us.


We were recently in the Orient for the Olympics being shown around China and Outer Mongolia with your noisy upstairs neighbor's good friend Mr Steve Barru.

Then we turned up like bad pennies at Black Rock City for Burning Man and thought we'd try shaming 'art' installations.

Setting up a trampoline for every gold spray painted, dust covered topless tart to bounce around on in the desert wiond is not what we'd call 'art' though we do enjoy it tremoundously (sic).

Just as we were about the be chased out for trying to set the Burning Man on fire early so we could leave, we ran into your noisy upstairs neighbor's OTHER good friend, Mr Iron Flatline.

The World, She eez so big and so leetle at the same time.

So we've given up all the rest and show you you, this we found tied to a rock and thrown through our window...

Photo Friday- Extraordinary
Maile Lani (Man with finger in air)

CharlesFuller (Man drinking orange juice in front of corn)

Blursurfing (girl with purse)

No Hitter! (group hug)

Balloon Clown (err...Balloon clown)

That's all for the moment. Hey. Has Tuesday Challenge died again? - Agent T

Upon checking it does appear that Tuesday Challenge is on the fritz which means we'll have 2 fewer members at the upcoming Annual Bretton Woods Photomeme Moderator Summit. What does that mean to you? Nothing! To us? Two unclaimed lap dancers!

There is something difficult about Tuesdays. Maybe it's Monday. PhotoFrank from Photoschau and all points German used to own the day until he gave it up for other pursuits like a life and handed it off to a couple of Brits where it has sat until, seemingly, they gave up running a photomeme for a life, also. We hope this trend doesn't continue. Or maybe they are copying PhotoSharks who takes unexplained weeks off at a time only to come back like they weren't caught with their knickers down.

Much like us.

Well...except for the life part.

with regards to the man with his finger in the air... i believe the background to be new york city. the person in the photo obviously finds it quite extraordinary (thus the title of the photograph). it seems to me that the person who decided to complain about the work of other photographers would rather be told what to think than be forced to use a few extra brain cells to come up with something on their own.

We couldn't agree more and consider New York City to be quite extraordinary. Agent T is a particularly nasty and literal git and is probably just jealous and quite possibly Asian! Or European! Or a Boston Red Sox fan!

Consider the work of this photographer to be duly defended by Anonymous in the Photo Meme Hall of Shame tradition of Kerrin!

Actually I am honored to be selected in your blog. I think it shows that not everyone is open to interpreting the theme Photo Friday sets forth each week. Literal is so boring.

geoffe: It IS an honour to be selected in our blog. The actual shame is NO MENTION at all and we dole that out in heaps! Literal IS boring! Even worse than literal is random as many people do to post to be in the top 10. We'll be going after them soon with a self righteous indignation!
