Posted 28 February 2009 - 06:50 PM

I'm starting a new game on this board to highlight our photography talents. It is similar to the Song Game. Here are the rules. A person posts a photo and then someone else posts a photo that somehow relates to the one last posted. It can relate in a number of ways. For example: if a person posts a photo of a red brick Victorian building with a woman walking a dog in front and a Honda Accord and a van parked in front, then the next person can post a photo of another building with red brick, another photo of someone walking a dog, a photo of just a dog, a photo of a car, a photo of a van, a photo of a woman, or another photo of a building of the same style. Since the building is red, one could even post a photo of a tomato because it relates to the color of the building. The shots do not have to be urban in nature, but you do have to be the photographer, or be in the photo. Also, the shots do not have to be from Fort Worth. They can be from anywhere.

The rules in short:

1. Post a reply photo that somehow relates to the last one posted.
2. You must be the photographer, with one exception. You may be in the photograph and you had someone else take it.
3. You may not reply to your last post unless no one else has replied in 24 hours.
4. You may not repeat your photographs posted in this thread. However, you may repost photos that you used in other threads on this forum.
5. If you wish, you may post how your photo relates to the last one. There may be times when someone doesn't get the connection.

OK, I'm going to start it off with something fairly easy to post a photo that relates. This shot was taken at the Main Street Arts Festival at night.


To make the next post a little easier, the next photos could be: a photo (day or night) of the Burk Burnett Building, a photo (day or night) of The Tower, a night photo of any type, a traffic light, tents of similar color, other Main St. Arts Festival photos, people photos, blurry people photos, Sundance Square plaques and logos, or even a street sign. Use your imagination and be creative in your replies. Have fun!

Rather than looking down on everyone, sometimes you have to get out on the street and mingle. cool.gif

I was hoping this thread would be more popular. Since no one has posted in two days, I dug up a photo that I took looking in Razzoo's window. The connection here is Coors Light.

Hmm... How about just bricks? Here's a shot of a wall and walkway at the Radio Shack HQ/TCC. There's not much else in it other than bricks, so I'm not sure where to go from here, but I bet you clever guys can think of something!

JRL1972, your photo is not showing up. It has to be on the web and linked before it can show up on this forum.

Monee, I'm really disappointed in your last post. There was so much potential with the elephants.

Playing around with JRL's image, I can get it to load in the browser if I paste it's URL in the address bar. However, I don't get there if I create a link (like this one) in a forum post and try to browse to it. Weird, right? It could be that Google (which appears to be the host for the image) doesn't allow the image to be linked in another web page. Just a guess. They may also offer a way around that.

Lots of possibilities here! Here's a shot with a crucifix in the center: Barcelona's Sagrada Família, under construction for a hundred years and not due to be finished until 2036. (Larger images at the Flickr link.)

Hmmm, people and beef.... We just got back from a quick trip to Philadelphia, my first visit there. Here's a guy making Philly cheesesteaks at Spataro's in the Reading Terminal Market. Fort Worth needs a market like this!

If I remember correctly from Pam's picture, the woman with the purse strap was sitting on a bench. There's a woman sitting on a bench in the background of this one as well...

A reply hasn't been posted in a long time, so I thought I would try to revive this thread. I didn't have a photograph of a lovely model handy, so I took something from the elements of the Cotton Mill. She is standing in a segmented arch opening, so I thought I would post a shot of a building with a similar arch. It is of the Ridglea Village No. 2.

This was taken May 2, 2009 approx 20 minutes after the tornado hit the Cowboys practice tent in Irving, TX.
From John's photo, I am using the torn awning above the Theatre Parking sign as the similarity along with the lines of his parking lot and the canal in this photo.

It's been a while since anyone has posted, so I will throw this one out. The previous photo shows a channelized waterway with a grassy sloped bank. Here's the Trinity River and the Bike Trail between Hulen and Bryant-Irvin Road.
