Oh Boy, Number 30 coming down the pike...Folks, the tension builds...Can you feel it?...I'm ready...I've got the beer and nachos and my eyes are glued to the monitor.

[This had better be good.]

Do me a favor, Crapper. Don't post the last photo of Spring for a week or two and let George sit there "con sfere blu."

Hey Crapper...Are you sure you shot that photo in Corona and not Area 51?...It looks like 2 UFO's are landing on the left.

[Lemme get some more beer.]

Those are poles rising in Flushing Meadows park in the background.

George,

The soft shapes are the photographic effect known as bokeh - created by using a wide aperature setting on the camera. In this case the objects were so distant and so out of focus that they were uncrecognizable.

Professionals use this technique to focus attention their subject by making everything else into a soft blur.

Bokeh? Okeh-dokeh - BUT I can't breath any more - the tension is too great.

[This beats waiting for the Groucho Marx "secret word bird" from coming down.]

We're takin' bets here.

#30 is gonna have a "pink" theme?
