Poor you ... what a sacrifice for a challenge :-) Great photograph

Oh, I would have loved to have seen you rip that tape off DT - very funny as is too though! It looks like you're in the midst of being robbed! That wide-eyed look with the glasses askew adds a lot. Good shot too! :-) CJ
PS You look like a mere shadow of your former self! :-)

If you had titled this "Mmf, pfmmhf mmmf!" I doubt anyone would have questioned its eligibility! :-) Funny and cool image. -Kuivaamo

Thanks Melbob. Yes, if someone had taken a picture of me ripping that tape off it would have been a great shot. I don't know why I put it on so securely! -dtallakson

Too funny dT, love it. Great expression and I bet the expression post 'tape removal' would have been even better?

Regards Melbob

Thanks tv, angioman and Sharon. tv and're right about that! Peeling off that tape felt like I was taking a good many layers of skin off my face! -dtallakson

Thanks Olaf. Your entry for challenge 3 was a fun one. You've been at this for a long time! -dtallakson

I've read the other comments now. To me, the words "sound of silence" are very poetic. Is the absence of sound a sound? Perhaps not. Does it have to do with sound? It definitely does! Sound without a pause just becomes noise. Meaningful sound, like music or speech, relies on silence as well as sound. What's characterizes silence? Can you describe it without mentioning sound? I didn't think so...

The first thing I thought of when I saw the theme of this challenge was the title "The Sound of Silence". I had a different kind of image in mind though - a serene minimalist landscape photograph.

Yours is a fun interpretation of the words, and it makes me think of an image I submitted in cslr_challenge 3:

Thanks Alastair! -dtallakson

I think this is definitely on topic, but I posted a sound of one hand clapping, so I would! I was trying to think of a way to do the sound of silence myself, but all I could think of was a sign saying "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls". Yours is much better.

Thank you Nico! -dtallakson

:-) I can least hear a "mmm... mumble... grumble... mumble... mmm..." coming out of this one :-)

The cap backwards is wonderful! Kind regards Nico

Way to go Pops! ;^) -dtallakson
Guest 24-Feb-2009 02:46
mumble mumble mumble - I say YES!

OK...Lydia says "nay". Any "ayes' out there? -dtallakson
Canon DSLR Challenge24-Feb-2009 02:07
Sorry... not buyin'. The absence of the challenge title does not meet the challenge, IMHO. If I say go and you give me 'stop', the opposite of 'go'... it's not meeting the challenge.

You're ADORABLE though, dt! *grin*

Save this for a "Silence" challenge. ;) ~Lydia
