    I google imaged the artist; I thought it was Narcissus.

    Once I get my brothers to give me my other computer back, I might be able to share some of my photography.

    Yup! Quite a striking painting, the original. You can tell who it is supposed to be immediately.
    I was impressed by the unconventional pose... and by Caravaggios pictures in general. He's good.

    gzhpcu...they are both nice....i wish i could see more detail in them...my eye sight is bad at the mo.

    Did you travel to / in Nepal?

    'Bagheera' reminds me of the rare African cheetahs mentioned here, from yesterday's reportage...Farid Belbachir's pic at the bottom, especially,
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7905986.stm

    partly quoting:
    The first camera-trap photographs of the critically endangered Northwest African, or Saharan cheetah, have been obtained in an experiment in Algeria....

    thanks for sharing your fine drawings

    Oh, pretty! I love big cats.
    They were the first thing I learned to draw, too

    The architecture is lovely, too!

    Mahesh, Jokergirl,Fazor,
    Thanks for the kind words. Here are a couple more you might like. (No, I was never in Nepal. Only travelled vicariously via some old National Geographics...)

    "Shere Khan":



    "Sheherezhad":



    "Surprise!"

    It goes: first upload the image to imageshack, then use the IMG tag to put the image in the port by using a link to that site.

    ImageShack is one of the explicit exceptions to our no direct linking rule since it's a site specifically made for doing that.

    I bring you:
    8. Hotlinking

    Try to avoid putting in links to images directly from someone else's website. This can add a lot to their bandwidth, and then the host has to pay for it. In other words, if you see an image you like on an astronomy site, put in a link to that site, but don't use the [IMG] tags so the image loads into your post from their site directly. If you really want an image in your post, put it in a public site someplace and link to it from there. One exception would be from sites like NASA or universities, where bandwidth is not such an issue. If you own the image, then you can upload it to the board yourself.
    Note the italic, ImageShack is a similar exception. As is linking to images hosted on your own website where you pay the traffic cost.

    I prefer Flickr to ImageShack, personally. It's less full of ads.
    Of course, my stuff is linked from my own server so I don't care


  19. #139
    I don't suppose deviantart.com, or such like, would mind too much if you linked to your own pictures on there...but I don't really know.

    Deviantart actually does mind, as do most gallery pages. They have added a "Blog this" feature recently though which might give you a link to the image.
    I still hold that Flickr is the best free image host around... or at least the least annoying.


  21. #141
    I'll have to try Flickr. Imageshack has been taking ages to change page, maybe because of all the ad stuff that loads for each page.

    Try reading the book, it's better. As is several of the other movie versions.

    There's almost 'too much content' in this one, but all your others are quite intriguing compositions! I've had an abyssinian and an ocicat, so I can identify.

    A pastel sketch of an acrylic painting I'm starting: It's a martian zen rock garden, with a small fountain fed pool of saturated brine on a slab of basalt in the centre. The final piece will probably have a small inuckshuck, near the right hand edge of the pool.

    I know I've made a schoolboy error with the colour of the sky, but the blue cone over the setting sun is accurate, and this is just a sketch:

    In space PR and Politics are as important as engineering and science. And no-one can hear you screaming about it.

    "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

    Exploring other worlds with people is a great idea, but look at what has happened since the end of Apollo: How much could unmanned exploration (and astronomy) have discovered with all that money blown on paper rockets?
