Randomly Phoctober!

My pal Maht over at The Moon Topples is running a series in which he's posting photos everyday for the month of October. He's calling it "Phoctober" and everyone's invited to join in. Here you are, Maht...

A couple of vending machines. I'm sure it's already been done, but I'm thinking of doing a series of these.

Some odd-looking lights.

Technicolor dreams...

My daughter playing around an odd fountain.

I love this kind of scene, but I'm not really sure why.

Kyklops' legs! Some silliness for Verilion and Absolute Vanilla (you both know why!).


  1. I love the idea of a vending machine series! The whole thing becomes so much fun when one thinks in terms of themes.

    Now, all we need is leg series - and I notice we got toes too! Cor bugger la, now there's an added bonus. Now we just have to wait for you to add in the thighs...

  2. More really nice stuff.

    I'd like to see the vending machines expanded to cover as many different countries as possible. Also, old ones are fun to look at.

    I like the infinite loop of the feet on the computer screen picture. I always liked, as a kid, hanging out in bathrooms (no Larry Craig jokes, please) that had mirrors on opposing walls.

    The fountain/daughter picture, I think, is a great example of how black and white photography is sometimes better -- the subtler colors allow the disparateness of the shapes to come forth.

  3. Good stuff; I especially like the vending machines, the daughter & fountain, and the legs. Well, the *picture* of the legs.

    I've been posting photos almost every day for the past 3-4 months now...

    Of course, I took something like 2500-3000 shots in a six-week period, and I'm currently posting pictures I took in July. So it's more like Pho-Second-Half-Of-The-Year for me.

  4. Oops, forgot to use my current, non-Blogger identity...

  5. I really enjoy picture infinity stuff (that would be the legs).

    I feel the vending machines long to be part of a series, they seem like part of something more.

  6. Seems you all like vending machines! A series is coming...

    A leg series? With thighs? What kind of tramp do you think I am?

    Thanks for the positive feedback.

    Thanks, and yeah, I've still got a crapload of shots from my recent trip to Canada, so I know what you mean.

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting. I'll be by your place soon!

  7. You don't really want an answer to that last question, do you? ;-)

    C'mon then, where're the latest photos? (Irrespective of theme!)

  8. He He! That leg shot is very clever, so do you think that because the picture just goes on and on that that's it now? ; )
    Before the legs I was going to say that I loved the fountain shot. Kids playing is a fantastic subject.

  9. AV,
    Nah, I know the answer to that question already...

    Between you and AV, I think this "legs" thing just may go on and on and on...!
