"112.moons.over.odessa"

Sampled from Debi, again. I did not see a purple fence post next to the image, but I my poor excuse to the Texas Rangers will be that yes, I am color blind. Did not see the red light and did not see that purple post. Gracias.

It's very imaginative to see what you do with other people's images. It is always nice when we can go and look at the original and see what you have done with it. You're obviously very good at your craft and a true artist are.

I see we still like the color green. I'm happy about that.

Hi John, This is a nice one too , is it 'cropped' out of a totall something? If so it is done well! Both they are great and I would not 'see' the problem either, in other words: I am not colourblind but I like them both!

And ehhh John a Toyotavan is a great car, I like almost all cars this is the 'companyc-ar' I do not own it. But I show inwhere I drive from to B, and to places where I made my photo's from Holland. The photo's itself should be photographic too I hope?

My best wishes for 2008, JoAnn

Ooohhh - what I say to the police, under threat of arrest, is like what I said to my mom when I was fourteen when I did poorly on a math quizz.

I am partly deaf (the high register) in my left ear.

Debi had a photo where she explained that purple on a fence post in Texas means no trespassing.

That purple in Debi's photo was just gorgeous.

I once got out of a speeding ticket by telling the policeman that the car I was driving had oversized tires because I had been watching the speedometer - it was my brother's car so when he saw the registreation he let me off. When younger, my personal record was talking myself out of two tickets in one weekend.

In the US, the most important thing to do when you get stopped for speeding is to put your hands on the steering wheel so the policeman can see them (and not be afraid you have a gun). Then ask for permission to get your wallet, to go to glove compartment for registration etc. Policeman feels more secure and is less likely to ticket.

This did not work for me in Texas on a desolate road where the county makes their income preying on Yankee speeders. The policeman there even gives you a self adressed envelope to send in your outrageous fine.

Hi John,
I'm not sure what the original image was for this digital "collage" (is that correct?), but I really like it! I'd like to know what you started with... very, very nice! I envy your time spent commuting on a train w/your laptop! Sure beats driving yourself, right?!?!? :D
