1. Photo Assignment: Weekend 12/29/07

Well, I've had a nice week off. I hope each of you has enjoyed your holiday and some time off or at least a slow down in work. I encourage each of us to continue capturing images of "Holiday Warmth and Motorcycling." At the same time, we should move on to our regularly-scheduled Photo Assignment Threads. Lest we forget our time-honored parameters, 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. You may post more than one photo, but try to keep it to a handful.
• Title your photo so it can be referred to later.
• 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.

This week's theme: "Three"

Three seems to be a mystical number, the one magic numeral in equations, formulae, Pi, even the holy trinity. How does "Three" inform your photographic aesthetic? Let's see what you've got. I'll offer some feedback on these next year.

2. Then thou must count to three.
Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three.
Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three.

Five is right out.

3. Three arms.

4. Three oldies.

5. Very nice, Jeff.

SPECTACULAR! Well rendered image. There is an element of "echo of shapes" in the picture.
And to think I was merely going to take a picture of my three cylinder K75. How lame can I be?

7. D300!
Darn! That's a great camera. Virtually no noise at 800 ISO.
(Still, I just got a D3 but still prefer the colors of the Fuji S5)

Keep shooting.

I can't wait for spring when I am hoping to get a nice/2 myself I love those old bikes and I have some very fond memories of my days riding one.

Sweet!

Now is the time to get a vintage bike so you can work on "fettling" it before spring. DAMHIK.

Thank you. Yes, they are all mine. The black and blue ones (and the white one in my avatar) have factory original paint. The red one was restored by Tim Stafford

I am fortunate that I can afford to own a nice group of old BMWs. Not much else though
