Here's mine.

This was taken during my week in New Zealand, south island. This is an art gallery. I was trying my hand at taking pictures of architecture. Christchurch is where we went. Nice place but I think I'd prefer going there for the summer.

It is a great place. Was there for 4 years during the time I was engaged in Operation Deep Freeze (Antarctica). What a great, great place. Came within a hairs-breath of moving there permanently.

Wow! Really? Pretty cool! We went to the International Antarctic Center. Experienced the windchill and learned about it. Saw some great little Blue Penguins... I'm not a winter person and think I'll stick to Far north queensland Australia for the tropics! ;)

Of course, you understand I did all this in my much younger days. I am not sure how I stood the cold at the time. Coldest I remember being in was in the bottom of an ice mine and the thermometer was stuck on 180 degrees below zero F. That was when I was young and dumb (and having a ball!)

So is that the reason for your avatar? Or does he represent Linux? :D

Can't even imagine being that cold!! Here's a snap I took of the room temp we were in... it got colder but I couldn't take the wind chill. We all had jackets and overshoes, but still... I commend those who live and work there!

I bought a new lens a couple days ago. Haven't had time to test it out much, but here's one.
The glass on my aquarium might need some cleaning. =)

Actually a combination of both plus I just love Penguins. 17.6 degrees would be a summer temp. We were not allowed to go into the ice until the temp warmed up to 50 degrees below. Warmest I remember was around 22 above. Course it varied depending upon which part of the coast you were on.

You need to be in the 'Advanced' post mode which you automatically get into when click 'Quote' to a message. Otherwise choose 'Go Advanced' just below your message when you have done a quick reply.

A half page below where you enter the text for a message you'll see 'Manage Attachments'. Chose that and a pop up window will appear that allows you to choose a file from your system to upload. You first choose the file and then click the 'Upload' button. The end result will be a small image that others can click on to see the larger image. Keep in mind what the size and resolution limits are here which are normally posted in the first message of the photo thread.

The larger images you see are links to images on other sites. Just click the icon with a mountain in it and pop up will come up letting you enter a url.
