    When shooting reflections, always check what is being reflected.

    I'd like to say this image is oversaturated, but it's just Rob that is all wet. (Ducking.)

    thirty-eight self portraits
    And you counted them? - Haven't you got a house to paint? Or is this to pass time between reading the Sun and wolf whistling Mrs Panty-Girdle from the top of your scaffolding?

    Actually it is good advice and a reminder that one should always wear clean underpants when photographing reflections

    Actually, I use my clean underpants to clean my camera lenses, apart from the Pansonic G1 which is far too sensitive to take that sort of treatment. But don't tell Ian any of this. Lens Cleaning - what do people use?

    This might be how I spend my break time from painting, courtesy of Diet Coke.

    Now that is weird - I visited that thread before this one and recommended the exact same thing

    Not at all my dear boy. It's what they call 'great minds thinking alike'.

    But let me get this right. Are you advocating CiC logo pants? I couldn't possibly go that far. This is, after all, a family forum, and we don't want any shift-eighting men's pants here, thank you very much. Shocking suggestion.

    Well they match Donald's camera strap. Problem is Scotsmen are not supposed to wear trollies...he could wear them on his head though as a wee bonnet.

    I think you would do a roaring trade with knickers with a transfer print of Donalds Avatar on the bum...or even the front but you would need a shot of the back of his head for that. If you charged 9.99 a pair and multiplied that by the number of female members of CiC and then multiplied it by 7 (for some reason women insist on a clean pair every day) you could buy me a decent lens.

    I realize that in Warrington such items of high-fashion are considered de rigueur, but we have to consider the more sensitive nature of some of our overseas members. And the thought of 'Donald Pants' to some of our American (sorry Katy) and Australian (sorry, Kay) ladies, would, I'm sure, fill them with a sense of outrage that would take a 100 years to quell. And neither you nor I have that long, boyo. I suggest we just keep them under the counter as 'specialist' items for those that need, and those that have the nerve to ask.

    BTW. Is this supposed to be a photography forum?

    You just have to let me know how many PMs you get

    I had n't noticed...er oh yes it is. I am not sure I would like photography without the humour though it would be a bit like replacing light bulbs for a hobby.
