I've gone to my farm in Kentucky for the weekend. It's a great place to relax, do a little hard physical labor, and forget about the rest of the world. If you don't have such a place, I highly suggest you get one.

In the meantime, if you find yourself in the vicinity, pick up a few souvenirs.

See you on Monday.

J. Peterman

Seriously, I thought I was doing folks who may not take the time to read in detail what they'd be signing for the prize money. Seriously, if you look at what Peterman's is trying to claim after-the-fact, and as a carrot to get you to sign quickly (there's a quick deadline that everything must be signed, etc.) and if you take of your "Peterman's Colored Glasses" for a minute... it IS pretty slimy what was trying to be slipped by. AND, Petermans not only tries to claim ownership for your winning entry, but for ALL of your entries. In my case.. over 60 of my best images. So look at it from MY persepective and how it was handled. What was trying to be claimed after-the-fact... and you'll have to agree it was more than a little sleezy. Read again the level of ownership they are claiming for ALL of your entries, not just the winning image.  ~  Skip HuntAustin, Texas  ~  http://skiphunt.carbonmade.com

Most of all, I remember the tension leading up to the lunar landings which was immediately followed by  the shared sense of sheer excitement, joy and being in total awe of hte people and program that made it happen once we heard the first transmission from that faraway place of dreams. Anyroads, I am very pleased that even science and this feat of heroic proportions did not have the capacity to dim the wonder, magic, and romance of standing under moonlight.
 Skip, cuukoo1 (love the moniker btw) and all else who walk the streets of this neighborhood..... enjoy your day.... peace oiut
 

"Standing in the moonlight
I saw you standing in the moonlight
With your hair a-shining blue,
I shivered in the midnight air
He was in the shadows
He was hiding in the shadows
Why he looked so dark and cold and lonely
Only heaven knows

Oh penumbra
Just like that moon
Some of it black, some of it bright
Some of it blue

Oh penumbra
I'm just like you
Feeling so shy
Hiding behind somebody too
Oh I'm just like you"

Justin Hayward - Lyrics

Very well Mr. Peter Lake. If you mean to demean me with the comment "professonal photos" ~ I mean nothing more than images I retain publishing rights to. I may enter a contest or two every now and then if folks like me are not excluded... but I never expect that winning means I'd have to sign away my rights forever and to anyone the contest host chooses. If you are NOT planning of every pubishing your photos, selling rights to use your images commercially, selling high-prints, books, etc. Then sure... sign away your beautfiful travel images for as many people as possible to see and collect a nice check. For me... that's fairly unwise Sir. And regarding "if my photos happens to win..." you didn't read my post. I already got a letter saying I won. BUT to collect the prize money, I would have to sign away ALL rights to ALL images I entered in the contest, in perpetuity, and for ALL uses, for anyone Peterman's wants to resell the rights to. That's just foolish unless your images have absolutely NO value to you other than sharing memories. 

 So yes, I made my point and will go take myself a nice "chill pill" and go motorcycle riding out into the Texas Hill Country... looking for a nice stream to hang my hammock by... and drift away into a cozy Spring slumber.

Skip, Congrats on winning and I didn't mean to demean you by the "professional" reference. It's just that you are preaching to a audience consisting, I believe, of mostly amatuers.  I would however suggest if you have a problem with the site, you take it up with the sponsors.  Go to the source instead of using a public forum to air your grievances. If your intention was to warn us, consider it done. Yesterday.
 Enjoy your prize and your motorcycle ride.  Nonething personal.   I am a member of this neighborhood and I just don't like what you are implying about it's host aand sponsor.  I shall not inflict my opinions upon you any further and will avoid any of yours hencforth.
 Peace out  .... celebrate your victory

First-comFirst-photoFirst-video Skip Hunt said...

@ Peter Lake... noted. I mentioned it here because there were a lot of great images in this contest. Some likely from very talented "amateurs" and others likely from "pros" like myself. My suggestion that the terms should be read very closely... goes out to the "pros" like me who might neglect reading closely what they'd be signing away if they accept the prize money. Nothing more. If Peterson's can run a contest, get MANY fantastic images collected and tagged with different countries so that the content-rich photo module of the site.. get the users to sign off to absolute and complete release of copywright.. and the finished, populated royalty-free image module can be licensed off to travel agencies, etc. Then more power to them. Just reminding those who might object to utter/absolute transfer of copyright to Peterman's... to beware of the fine print.;-) Good Day!

I did it. I bought Twinkies. But as Olivia pointed out (I think it was her, and if it wasn't I apologize, but I tend to ascribe all good ideas that I know I didn't come up with in here to Olivia. So there.) the ineffably bouquet of chemical saturation is so undeniable and so unpalatable, that the best I could do was pose for Twinkie Porn and then toss the bloody things in the nearest trash. And what the Hel is the OIL that they marinate those things in? It had no flavor of anything formerly growing and/or living that I could identify.

Still, it makes for fun photo composition.

On the wall to my right is an autographed and inscribed to me picture of Alan Bean, the Lunar Module Commander of Apollo 12 and the fourth man to walk on the moon. It was taken by Pete Conrad while both were on the surface of the moon. I have never seen another like it. Whenever I look at it, it reminds me of the brilliance and heroism of all those associated with NASA. And it reinforces in me a firm belief in a higher power. Presently, in Texas we are enduring the endless argument over the place of science and creationism in our school system. I would submit that there is room for both religion and science because they are both about belief and searching for the truth. Indeed, they are complementary, and the cacophony wrought by both sides does a disservice to the discussion both religion and science.

Lewis, I don't mostly disagree with you about science and religion being complementary, but here's my take on it.

The earliest scientists were called "natural philosophers". Philosophy means "the love of wisdom", and so those who practiced natural philosophy were engaging their love of wisdom regarding the natural phenomena around them that their religion couldn't (or didn't bother to) explain. Take the earliest of the Greeks: Anaximander, Anaximenes, and Thales. These guys did their level best to figure out some stuff about how soil formation occurs, where does matter come from, and what were the constituent parts of the matter than we observe. Tough stuff.

But WHY these thousand's year old guys - and they were WAY pre-Biblical - are interesting is because we can look at what they did and determine what their METHOD was. How did Anaximander come to his theory about soil formation (he though earth was "created" by water)? Well, he looked at the process of river delta siltation and theorized that the river was "creating" the dirt that then settled at the river delta.

We can look at the old natural philosophy texts that we have and parse the methods and most importantly the errors to which their authors were subject. It's incredibly useful to do this.

But what do the so-called "Creationists" of the Christian camp offer? Do they offer an insight into ancient Hebrew scientific method? Well... no. Unfortunately the tenor of the "argument" (because it's hardly a "debate") is usually to assert that one story is true with a capital T. And of course this rhymes with trouble.

I could entirely support a curricula that wanted to include "natural philosophy" as a parallel track to the scientific method, but how this would satisfy those who offer merely a veiled monotheistic religious orthodoxy as their alternative to the scientific method is beyond me.

And, in a lovely turn of the screw (because who among us doesn't support at least the theory of screwing, even if we don't turn the screw with our own hands?), when monotheistic religious orthodoxy tries to take over - as it sometimes does - there are some VERY inventive people out there who have a solution.

We call them Pastafarians. They are the most holy. They are meaty, beaty, big, and bouncy. They have been touched by the Noodly Appendage. I revel in their Piratical savoir-faire. http://www.venganza.org

OLIVIA! As I told the Mother Superior, I did NOT use my teeth to bite, or scratch, or rake (heavens forfend), and neither did I SWALLOW. Nay. I did spit. I have remained pure, and undefiled by the surging cream filled interior of the Twinkie, neither have I been pillaged by its spongy yet resilient exterior.

Speaking of YE, and I didn't start it, an acquaintance kept bugging me for a live source of commentary on Asperger's based on a feeling he got when he asked if I knew somebody.

I know people who know everything and, though I don't work with them any longer, they got the data rounded up in about two minutes based on what I remembered.

Now, I'm just a little worried that he knows where I live.

Stoney, sadly I fish out of season and must use artificial bait.  Should I catch one I also have to let it go.  Thinking as a trout thinks, a worm is much more appealing this time of year than a fake salmon egg made of yarn, but give it a couple months, the trout will swim to my fake mayflies.  I am a purist some places, but love fishing.  My wife kids me about fishing for striped bass on cape cod with a tampon applicater, which is supposed to look like some kind of fish.
 
When I was a kid I bought some kind of worm mail order from the back of Boy's Life or Popular Science magazine.  I followed the directions, put them in a can and forgot about them.  A few weeks later I had a can full of grubs and maggots, not sure what they were supposed to be.  I think we covered the can and buried it in the garden.  So much for fishing with them, but I would take some big night crawlers.  Where is that flashlight?

Dear Mr. Skip Hunt,
For almost 10 years I wrote contest rules for theTV station I worked at. I will let you in on the same "secret" that I have told MANY MANY MANY contest winners over the years.  
 
You should have READ & UNDERSTOOD ALL OF THE RULES BEFORE you entered. I'm sorry you may have to pay taxes on your winnings, I am sorry if your Images are now no longer able to be copyrighted or owned by you. IF you had read the rules before you entered the contest you would have known these facts and then been able to decide if you wanted to enter or not.  Just because the link popped up & it looked like fun to enter, does not mean you should just get yor entry in & not worry about waht eh official rules are. You are more than welcome to decline taking the prize if you want to.
 
Please do not blame us or the J. Peterman's Company for the fact that you chose not to check out all of the facts about the contest before you entered. It is not the job if the company to make sure you read the rules before uploading your photos. That is all on you.   
 
Sincerely,
Rings90

 With that said.......  Skip Hunt, Welcome to the neighborhood!  It's a grand place where you will meet a lot of very interesting and sincere folks from all manner of backgrounds,  hear all sorts of new ideas, interesting perspectives, while learning much and having a grand time doing it.  We may agree to disagree on some topics, but we strive to do so while being respectfull and maintaining everyone's dignity.  There is a strong bond amongst us as well as with our good host.                   
 Jonathan (aka Twinkie Boy) Your wicked sense of humor is making it difficult for this south-side boy to keep to the high road.   Beware that in your playful moment, you have defiled a food-like substance icon that is looked upon as being as sacred as the holiest of religious symbols and bones of saints ;).   Oops, never mind......

Isles, your conversation today reminds me of the 13 martini joke. 
 
So a kid walks into a bar and says to the bartender "Set me up 12 martinis, I just turned 18 and got my first oral sex."
 
The bartender congratulates him and lines up 12 martinis on the bar.  The kid goes down the line, drinking each down with gusto.  When he gets done with the last the bartender says "Well you had a great day, let me get you a thirteenth on the house."
 
The kid looks down a little and says to the bartender "No thanks, if twelve wont get the taste out of my mouth, thirteen probably wont either."

Jonathan aka 'Twinkie-boy,' save those photos; your grandchildren will adore them.  And you are typically-EYEster good-sportish about it all.  Olivia's question is well-put, as ever, and your response -- brushing, flossing, rinsing -- says you've covered all bases but for any post-spit-possible-mini-involuntary-swallow, and serendipitously, UNHINGED's joke fits right in here, as often happens in The Community. But you're taking care of that (neat, I'd think). So about you I shall rest easy, this day. About your family, always I do.
 
I echo PeterLake's wise, thoughtful advice, MR.HUNT. He's never spoken a word you couldn't take to the bank.  He has also the official wherewithal to hear confession and to absolve; he so did for me when I confessed to never having seen a Twinkie, and what a relief THAT was. Seriously, folks.
 
OLIVIA semi-absolved Mr. HUNT, or at least said "Go and sin no more.' so we've covered that. We take care of everybody.... 
 
And oh! do I love, no: adore John's song lyrics...makes me long for Frank Sinatra, but when have I not?  John, always you find the abso-perfect-lutely words, whether poem or poem-set-to-music, striking always a note in me; how do you do it?  These today describe often-me so well, I'm more than ever certain you read my mind. But we know there's telepathy about.
 
Of The Key, keep it we MUST, and John's suggestion of a glass enclosure is sanguine.  Let's do that.
 
Stoney, darlin', you have my word: If ever that person should happen upon me, seeking your whereabouts, even the little information I own is sacrosanct: My lips are sealed.  Sealed.  I love your front yard: enter a photo!
 
MACKDADDY, my computer's gremlins are keeping me from your message via The Big Editor In The Sky; rather, stopping me when I try to send you email.  I'll keep trying; maybe it'll give in to blandishments (curses failed). I'm so happy you're well.
