Most of them use rechargeable batteries so I need lots on hand.

In case of a major power failure you can rent them out!

..but I don't see teeny tiny skinny flashlights. I would want one of those.

Nice collection. Do you have any that you shake or wind-up to charge?

You can buy/ download much better pics of landmarks than you can ever take. Why not have a pic of someone you love in front of it, so you can treasure that for years to come? The monument will not change. Your lover will.

I learned a lot, being a solo traveller. Photos of famous landscapes have already been done. It's the intimate that speaks to people and evokes memories. Hence my pictures of... me... and food... and me and food...

I'm on a couple of films that I wonder about... I asked a Japanese man to take a photo of my (then) husband and I in Trafalger Square. His price was to have a photo with me. And he really squeezed me close! I was quite small in those days, and had striped hair. He might have thought I was a Spice Girl.

And again in Egypt - a whole pack of schoolboys asked the Evil Ex if they could have pictures with me. He agreed, probably without realising every single one of them would want a separate photo. Once he did, he just found it really funny. I was goosed more than once.

Absolutely right Sundae. The photos are taken to spark a memory later, not for some imaginary art show.

Damn Tulip, that close-up looks nothing like what I see in the other picture. It must the way the light is reflecting on it, but to me it looked like a smooth pearly white porcelain cylindrical shape with a design of blueish something-or-other in the middle and a band of blue on the very top and very bottom.

lol

Can definitely see what you're saying, but I'm talking more about when someone shows you their holiday snaps and everyone single one is a photo of them in the same pose with the same forced smile in front of a different landmark.

Occasionally, not often, I've surprised myself with an amazing photo of some scenery which had I put myself or someone else in it, wouldn't have been nearly as good.

Having said that, another reason is that I generally, don't like photos of myself (which is one reason I have never posted any of myself on this forum).

Any speaking of being in photos that you're not sure about, I was walking through one of the squares today (there aren't many here) and I saw someone point a camera, probably purely because I'm a Caucasian) and was very glad I had my sunglasses on.

That's funny Casi, I pictured you as being more italicized.

No, I was attempting to make a joke about how in a picture thread you posted a bunch of words in lieu of a picture and the words were in regular type. So, you,RFN, was realized as words. You don't strike me as bold or all caps, but you're more than just regular type, so italicized.

Uh...how skinny teeny you're talking about? There's a thin, long blue one right there on the left. It's a size of a pen. There are short ones sitting there that are hella bright. Umm...there's one I really like but didn't buy. Let me borrow from my brother and show it to you. It's skinny and teeny tiny and bright! Pretty too. Btw, do you want bright? If all you want is an okay bright, then there's that blue one sitting there. Wait, are you being sarcastic?

Um....no. I want to reply -- HELL NO! But doesn't want to offend anyone who does.

hehe...I actually understood his joke. He is so witty that half of his jokes go over my head.
