    ANARCHY Photo Assignment: Weekend 11/10/07

    Because anarchy is a bummer, we humbly offer these simple rules:

    • Photos must be shot this weekend: Fri, Sat, or Sun.
    • You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it).
    • No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software).
    • Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
    • Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo.
    • Post your photos in this thread only. Do not start a thread in reply to this assignment. Please post your photos no later than next Wednesday.
    • And, the most important rule: have fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.

    It's Friday already, and I for one .. am champin' at the bit. So if you want to join me in expressing your glee of anticipation to this week's theme, please do so. And when that theme is posted, if you wish to post some excess pictures that you just couldn't seem to rein in from your trigger happy fingertips, why don't you post them here so we all can see your myriad of variances on this week's exciting new soon to be announced theme!!!

    Harmony: definition from the OED

    1. Combination or adaptation of parts, elements, or related things, so as to form a consistent and orderly whole; agreement, accord, congruity.
    pre-established harmony, in the philosophy of Leibnitz, a harmony between mind and matter, e.g. between the body and soul, established before their creation, whereby their actions correspond though no communication exists between them.

    Can I post this old picture of Tina and I on our RS? I think this was taken circa 1990 at the very first Damn Yankees Rally.

    We'd been playing a field event where you ride in circles outside a circle and throw empty cans into a trash can in the center. It was pretty fun.

    Man, that was a great rally. One bathroom, one shower, 30 or so people and a big pile of firewood. I think I stayed up until about 2am with Mike Andrews, just talking about everything.
