delirium happy
rottenfruit did this jsut recently, and it seemed like a nifty thing to do and a good way for me to get acquainted with my poor negected digital camera. So here's what we're going to do: you comment here with a request for something I should take a picture of, then I take the picture and post it up here somewhere.

Disclaimer 1: I suck at photography.

Disclaimer 2: I know that you lot are a bunch of smartarses. Please only request things that are actually possible. For instance, "a tree" or "your bathroom" would be good requests, because I could take them. "Jesus", "Ulaanbaatar", "serendipity", "the dark side of the moon" or "dignity" would be bad requests because I can't. Anyone making a bad request will be sneered at and hit with large metaphorical sticks.

Take a picture of your digital camera.

An old building on campus.

There aren't any old buildings on my campus. It was built from scratch in the 1960s when the university was opened. I could do you a random not-very-old building on campus, if you wanted. Alternatively, there are a nice seection of old buildings in the city of Lancaster itself, and I could take a snap of one of them, if you'd prefer. Your final option would be to give me a totaly new request.

A fine old non-campus building sounds good, then. Thanks.

How about taking a picture of yourself taking a picture of yourself taking a picture of yourself....


(in any form, from match, to lighter, to... whatever)

Take a picture of the letter rho :)

A die and a bug, in the same picture.

This might be tricky. I don't think I actually have any dice at my current residence; everything that I own that contains any is still amongst the masses of stuff which has yet to be transfered up here from my parents'. If I have a sudden revelation and realise that I do have a die, or if I figure out somewhere where I could buy one without having to buy an entire board game to go with it, then I'll do this. Otherwise, do you want to make another request?

interstellar master trader's probably sells dies.

Ooh. Good point. I should have thought of that. I shall try that if my current plan (which is cunning and free) fails to work.

Any musical instrument. :)

a flower spinning down the toilet.

This falls into the "too difficult" category. I can't think of anywhere I could pick a wild flower, nor do I know of anywhere where I could buy a single small flower cheaply and easily. I also doubt that I could manage to focus the camera and take the picture in the brief secondwhen the flower would actually be visible. Sorry about that; care to make another request?

A picture of your favorite movie, a loaf of bread, a pillow, and a tube of toothpaste. Make it all artsy-fartsy!

For your viewing pleasure...

You could have picked a dandelion. Buggers are everywhere!

Oddly enough, I don't think I've seen any around here. There are precious few grassy areas near me, and that I can think of, they're all dandelion free.

A childhood toy, or a stuffed animal that you now sleep with

Alas, I don't think this one will be possible. None of my childhood toys have moved up here from my parents' house yet, and I don't seep with a stuffed animal (all my stuffed animals are down there as well). I've been thinking and thinking and there just isn't anything I coud use, I don't think. Care to make another request?

Hmm. How about something fuzzy? Doesn't have to be stuffed. Preferably not dead. :D

a sheep, or a picture of a sheep, or a figure of a sheep, or a sheep toy, or a small cloud that reminds you of a sheep; or all of these.

I'd like a picture of the bridge when the lights on it are on.

A sunset or sunrise.
