Not a serious discussion on photography, more a game similar to several found in Off Topic.

Here's the idea. I'll post a photo, then if you have a travel photo lying about somewhere that for some reason is similar (colour, shape, framing, subject matter, etc .. ) you post that photo to the thread. The next person looks at that photo and sees if they have anything similar, etc.. etc.. etc.. Once there's a good collection, I'll put them all into a blog entry so we can see the progression easily. Let's see where in the world this thing takes us and I'll be very curious to see what connections develop. ;)

To start, here's a pic I took last year in Dubrovnik of a church framed by a gap in the wall.

Not a church, but sticking with the framing technique.

Plitvice Lakes

Hmm,like it,have some photos,but the problem is I dont know how to post it .
Can somebody tell me in a simple way what I have to do

Hi Marlis (and anyone else who might be wondering),

Take the following steps.

1. Browse to the photo in your gallery (use the public gallery, ie.. http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/gallery/users/Marlis/)

2. Copy the URL from your address bar. Should be the actual photo, so it will have a photoID in it, like this: http://www.travellerspoint.com/photos/stream/photoID/38004/users/Peter/

3. Reply to this thread and paste in the url. The best way to do this is to first type a description of the photo, like Q' typed "a hole and a tree..", then highlight that text, then hit the Url button at the top of the reply form. Paste your Url in there and it should work OK :)

Hope it helps. Send me a message if you want me to explain it more in-depth

Quoting Peter

The best way to do this is to first type a description of the photo, like Q' typed "a hole and a tree..", then highlight that text, then hit the Url button at the top of the reply form. Paste your Url in there

Or just type [url] directly before and [/url] directly after the link.

Actually, here: Click on the Quote link above this post, and then in the textarea, copy the following line from my post:

"behind the arch"

So highlight the above line, and then copy it.
Then hit the back button, click on the Edit link above your previous post, and Paste.
