Neat pictures I've taken

I thought it would be good to have a thread for random neat pictures that Dwellars have taken. There are many specific threads out there (colors, close-ups, etc.,) and I like those, but sometimes an original picture doesn't have enough that is interesting about it to sustain a whole thread. Feel free to put those original images here. This isn't meant as a thread for images found on the web. Please don't post it unless you took it.

So here are two pictures I took last night with my kids. We had fun doing these, and a bunch more.

Tripod.
Laser pointer.
ISO 80. Smallest aperture. 60 second exposure.

Awesome Glatt. Mine are interesting from a totally different perspective.

When you have a pretty bad clog in your pipes, your plumber may not be able to clear it using augers or chemicals. If the leak isn't moving, the chems won't reach it. If builder put in tight joints, an auger can't reach very far through the pipes.

Then the plumber has to find another point where the drain drains, to try to use the auger there, closer to the clog. To do that, he may have to make several holes in your drywall. If the sink is on an upper floor and the pipes for it aren't straight down, it may take several holes to find it.



If he doesn't find it inside, he may look under your soffets. (The incoming water turned out to be there.)



Once the drain pipe is located, he'll have to put yet another hole in your wall to attach a T-joint so he can use the auger from there. It's especially nice if it's right next to the electrical. And behind your 250 lb. "entertainment center"



If you put chemicals in your pipe to try to clear the clog, at this point they will all drain out into your living room. If your plumber is experienced he will catch this stuff in a bucket without getting caustically burned himself.



Total bill: $752.30 and I will have to fix this damage myself. Maybe in the Spring. Where is that procrastination thread?

I like those fireworks, Bullitt.

This picture is nothing special, but we had fun making the gingerbread house. No, a kid didn't do the roof. That was me.

Thanks!

Here's a few more that I'm pretty sure I've never posted.





This one is a scan of a print from my high school days.

May be a silly thing but, building insurance?
Or, when building a house don't bury pipes inside the dry lining!
Better still, don't put crap down the plug (stopper) hole!

Here are a couple from Monday. Went to Luray Caverns with the glatt family. Hard to take pictures in there. It's so dark, and you want a very wide angle lens.

Thanks, I just spent an hour reducing and preping some pics for a thread like this. I will try to get them up in the next day or so, all scenes from Savannah.
