    Hehe, this is funny after reading your note. These signs are plastered all over my apartment complex. :) I assume it is because of the asbestos. One place is on my ceiling. Apparently popcorn ceilings from buildings in the seventies and earlier are almost assured to be made from asbestos.

    Modern parking garages also apparently use asbestos even today for insulation.

    The rainbow of colors and bold signs really capture the essence of a carnival perfectly. The shadows are spooky! What are they actually? How can they be? To me it looks like the devil himself telling a little boy something, but what? Instructions to do something? A warning?

    The funny thing is, I think it's possible to open that lock with a pen cap! See this thread for more info.

    Very interesting shot. I like how the straight geometric reflection of the bright yellow window turned into a semi-chaotic twist on the sloped bench.

    Having lived in Emeryville last year, it's nice to see some shots from there. As for being stopped, I believe there were a couple of bombs that went off at Chiron in Emeryville last year, having been set off by a radical eco-terrorist group, which would explain the jumpiness by the security guards.

    The background is great, as is DOF; I like how the tree branches frame the image at top left. To me, the tall bluebell is having an animated conversation with the weed (?) about something. :)

    This is a case of the thumbnail not doing proper justice to the actual image. I never saw grasshoppers with such vivid colors like that before! The contrast between their orange/black color and the green leaves is powerful, and I like the crispness of the the part you focused on as well. Nice one!

    What adds to the Escher-like design is how the color of those rocks in the background is so similiar to the structure. Those are rocks, right? I like how you captured part of the the stairs leading up at the top part of the frame.

    An incredibly bold and powerful shot! And the note makes it so much more interesting knowing that the snow on the eyelid comes from a snowball. It's so crisp, it's amazing how you got in there at the right moment.

    The smoky lights create a powerful effect. The figure in center adds to the mysteriousness and enhances the party atmosphere.

    A peaceful shot. The foiliage at right highlights the rightmost towers perfectly. This might be more powerful had the top-left branches not been there.

    The shadows really gives depth to the architecture. The angular designs are evident almost everywhere in the photo. Very nice.

    So this is where umeboshi and Chouya Umeshu come from? It's a pickled flower? I like this photo for the simplicity of having one flower in focus with the others surrounding it. The background is not distracting and the blue tint from the sky contrasts well with the pink flower.

    This is really nice shot. The DOF is great choice with the other Ojizo statues in the background. The saturated red colors looks powerful against the stone faces.

    Yes, I agree that this is a pleasing image based on the angular geometry. The exposed triangular piece on the left side adds just the right touch of interest.

    Wow, great shot. The background composed of branches and leaves works very well with the dress design. Another thing that I like is the framing of the face with the branch diagonally on the left and the cloth diagonally on the right.
