30 Days of Photographs IV: Transparent

Day 20 of Bob. Slowly but surely we're nearing the end, and MikeWJ and I feel like there has been an appalling lack of praising of the hosts in this challenge. What's the point of putting ourselves through this if we can't get anything out of it? I haven't received any gifts, apart from a few threatening letters and a dead skunk, and MikeWJ hasn't had any ladies' underwear thrown at his feet (or any other body part). None of you even paid the entry fee. We love your photos, but our love doesn't come for free, you know.

But luckily for you, I'm a benevolent host, unlike MikeWJ, who's totally the bad host in our little good host/bad host duo. Seriously, he never takes care of his own links, and he leaves snarky comments lying around for all the guests to see. But because I'm the epitome of all that is good, I'm going to allow you to participate in this challenge even without the entry fees and bribes. Chocolate will be plenty.

Link up, and send me the chocolate at my address; Ziva Moon, 666 Hell Drive, The Inferno.

  1. Your begging for chocolate is transparent. Side note, how do you keep it from melting in the inferno?

  2. My magical powers and the ice in my soul keeps the chocolate from melting.



    Also, the fridge. We do have electricity in Hell, you know.

  3. But beautiful, gracious, covered-in-chocolate Ziva, that crystal clear water will cool your Inferno!


    Holy Wosa....er..Water! Another fabulous photo!

  4. Oh, by the way, I'm sending you a can of peas as a token of my admiration for you. I'll never use them.

    This photo is so good, and must have taken you so many tries to capture, it makes me weep. It's perfect. The colors, the focus, the timing, the concept itself, the composition, the double drip—everything.

    It's the sort of photo I'd love to have hanging on my wall. I won't, of course, because I'd feel jealous of your talent every time I saw it, and that would be bad for my heart.

    It's the best photo of the challenge so far, in my opinion. Except for your shadow shot, because sexy always trumps everything.

  6. This is amazing. It's gorgeously beautiful and I'm just going to stop tossing words at it because I can't describe how much I like it.

  7. My jaw is ON THE FLOOR! Holy crap, Ziva!! I have no idea how you captured this amazing image. I am BLOWN AWAY!

  8. Awesome! Consider your entry fee paid.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Once again, you outshine us all! With the exception of Mike WJ, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I can't find any words to describe how fabulous your photograph is. Wait! How 'bout phenomenal or fabulous? Either works.

  11. "...beautiful, gracious, covered-in-chocolate Ziva.." You are hereby exempt from having to pay the entry fee.

  12. Haha, thank you, Cheryl! I knew you'd understand it perfectly. :D And I think it's definitely stubbornness in this case. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ohhh Babs, you are playing with fire here! :D You best be out getting me some chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  14. By all means, toss some more words at it. :D Thank you, Mike, I'm glad this one came out the way I envisioned it, there was a point when I was ready to just give up.

    That's not all you can say. It's all you can say in sign language, maybe. But you can talk A LOT more than that.

    I simply adore Tami. Let's give her a special award.

    Your jaw is capable of dropping to the floor? You must have been extremely popular in high school, that's all I can say.

    Coming from me, Onion Boy?

    I should just chuck my Nikon in the nearest lake and be done with it.

    Thank god. Or somebody. Probably not god. But anyway, I'm glad there's electricity. I don't think I could survive without the Internet.

  24. You can shove your special award up where the sun doesn't shine.

  25. Oops, I must qualify, he joined #teamlame with the onion image but in general he is a cut above the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, the onions.. I can't believe you didn't go with the other photo you were considering. :D

    The inside of your fancy-dancy camera is pretty dark.

    The road to hell drive is paved with wonderfully bad intentions.

  32. Oh Mike, I could skate circles around you.

  33. mikewjattoomanymorningsSeptember 20, 2013 at 11:40 PM

    Yeah? Maybe I could take a photograph of that and use it for Day 29 of this fucking challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  34. And I also really liked your photograph

    It would be a sinful waste of chocolate sending it to that address, you know. It'd only melt! Tell you what, I'll buy some and eat it for you. How's that?


    You do a great job. Really. And that photo is stupendous!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Tami, I think you need a time out because sucking up to Mike is absolutely against the rules. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. She's just sucking up thinking there's something in it for her at the end. I've put her on a time-out. Not for the sucking up but for how flagrant it was. Oy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Okay, I'm going to step in it but I cannot for the life of my figure out what this is. I know it's a penis-shaped water drop that looks like it lost its cap. BUT, what IS it? Why is the background blue? Is that a can that fluid is dripping on? I've been almost bursting all day because no one else has asked & I didn't want to be the only one who wasn't exactly sure what I was seeing except a brilliantly time drop of something falling onto something else with a delicate splash. Phew!

    ReplyDelete
  39. How in the world did you get that! And Cheryl thinks it is a penis! ha ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  40. What an amazing picture. That is worthy of a frame and a special place on the wall!

  41. Stupendous photo! However did you accomplish that? You must have used a supersonic shutter speed! BTW... The check and the gift are in the mail, Ziva... it just takes a little longer to get it all the way to Finland. (Hope they haven't gotten lost on the way.)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you. I was completely thrown by the filled-to-the brim glass against the blue background. That looked like a perfectly round block of ice that you were dropping water onto causing the top to become watery as it melted. I couldn't figure out how a block of ice could pick up the strong blue tones through and through. Now I'm even more impressed with this photo simply because, HOLY SHIT, that took a shit-ton more patience than I originally thought when it was ice. :D

  43. You do know that if you had posted this in any other group challenge on the entire Internet other than this one, no one, including me, would have thought that elongated drop and the droplet in midair looked like a penis that had popped its top, right? I'm heavily influenced by the company I keep because I'm such a wienie and the irreverence just seeps in without my permission. Helluva photo & I have just the spot for it in the master bedroom.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I could barely breathe from the fumes.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, awesome! I'll be eagerly checking my mailbox ever day now.

    I used a shutter speed of 1/200 sec, so really not even close to supersonic. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Haha, I do know that, Cheryl. Everything is just a little bit dirtier in this group, isn't it? :D I blame Mike. Again.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I actually had to borrow some patience from M, because I didn't posses enough. He was the one who said "just try it one more time..." about twenty times.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love this photo. Well done! :)
