Most viewed Flickr photo of the day – September 19, 2012

And today’s most viewed photograph on my Flickr photostream with a whopping 9 views is….

2012 Golf .:R

2012 Volkswagen Golf .:R
Rising Blue
Nikon D700
Micro Nikkor 60mm
1/5000 sec.

This was shot during a Euro Car meet sometime in February.  It’s an acquaintances Brand New Golf .:R, one of the first to be delivered in NY in fact. It’s a thing of beauty, and while some might say it’s an overpriced GTI, and I sort of agree, but, you have to be a Dubber to understand.

I think I do need to re-process this shot.  It looks too BLUE!

Random Flickr Photo of the Day – September 19, 2012

This is one of the shots from my failed attempt at doing a 365 series titled ‘Where is Garfield Now?’ or WIGN for short. The basic premise was to shoot a Garfield Pez dispenser in different places/scenarios for 365 days. It was totally random, and it all started when I picked up a Garfield Pez dispenser at a garage sale. I did over 150 odd some days. I do have about a dozen unposted shots, but after falling behind in posting it, I ended up scrapping the whole thing.

I’ve been meaning to do it again since, but just haven’t found the main subject as appealing as Garfield.

Anyway, this was Day 28 and the description I put was as follows;

“Garfield decided just to stay at home today, and chill w/ some buddies.
He also told Optimus and Soundwave that the new movie didnt wiggle his tail, unlike the first one.

(I was stuck at home….so i know, this was a lame one)

Where is Garfield now?

Earworm: 80’s Cartoon Theme’s Edition – Bionic Six and Centurions

I think I mentioned something about doing an Earworm with 80’s Cartoon theme’s.  I think I was going to do it last week, but some reason or another, I didn’t.

In any case, here is the first entry.  Due to the shortness of the videos, I will probably be doing a few per entry.

First up Bionic Six.  It possible has one of the best themes to date.  I didn’t get to see this cartoon much back in the Philippines.  Only sometime in the late 90’s when they started doing re-runs at like 5:00 am, I was able to re-enjoy this classic cartoon.  It still bring a smile to my face when ever I hear the opening drum beats, and the bubbly music.

Up next is Centurions.  This one I got the pleasure of seeing when I was younger, and I remember playing pretend with my old friend back in the old country.  I always used to like Max.  “Man and Machine, Power Extreme”, was their catch phrase.  The characters were all cliched, but as a kid, you didn’t care.  I always wondered if Crystal ever got lonely up in that space station.



More to come tomorrow!
