Photo Challenge: Resolved

If you're a casual internet user you may not know that today was a day of action for people who oppose two bills in Congress. The bills are meant to fight internet piracy but instead know, just click over to The Oatmeal which is the simplest and nicest way to learn about something that will likely affect you, the casual internet user, more than it will the average internet pirate.

The action that most people took was to black out their sites or not to post. The time frame wasn't strictly defined but for most it was 8am to 8pm. Which is all to explain why the photo challenge is late today. Please enjoy the photos and then join the fight against SOPA and PIPA.

It's only me and lshykula in the challenge this time around so I put in two for each of us. Scroll down for the next prompt.

Lisa has been taking just amazing photos of the mountains in her home state. Purple mountains majesty indeed.

I don't actually know if this chord was resolving or not. Sounded good, though.

At this point we both got all tech geeky and started playing with apps to make composite photos.

Terriers have a wicked sense of resolve when they're on task. Buce is no exception.

In honor of the internet pirates who started this legislative snowball the next prompt is ARRRRR! Which is also kind of in honor of how growly I feel now that we're solidly in winter.

Please add your photos to our Flickr photo pool by 9am on Tuesday January 31st for posting on Wednesday February 1st. (ARRR! February already!) Let me know if you have any questions.


  1. That's it... my dog is resolute. I'm going to try to ponder this virtue next time I'm stuck with the thought that he's a giant, annoying pain in the ass who just won't give it a rest...

    Awesome photos, both of you - and cool beans on the techno-triptych skills.

  2. I like the moon pictures. Mine never turn out well.

    Thanks! Those moon pictures were taken without a tripod, too. I was surprised how well they turned out.
