    Mmmmm, Gin & Tonic sounds good right now.

    That consumerism pic makes me think of Tetris and the music. I would’ve voted for Save-2 but Tetris music won out.

    No boobs.. I’ll go for the kid instead

  4. formatc says:

    Voted for Save-2 but I need to give props to the kid for good taste – Annie’s products are amazing.

      That’s what I thought too, until I tried their cereals. Good lord they are bad. I got the “Honey Bunny Oats” and it looks like cat treats and smells like wet cardboard.

      • formatc says:

        @Samantha Gattsek: Fruity Bunnies are good. Haven’t tried Honey Bunny Oats, but the Cocoa/Vanilla Bunnies are disappointing.

        • Samantha Gattsek says:

          My parents never bought me Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops as a kid, so for some reason the idea of fruit flavored cereal is kind of weird. I’ll just go back to eating my Kashi cereal with real fruit added in :p

          • formatc says:

            @Samantha Gattsek: Don’t get me wrong, my preferred breakfast cereal is Cascadian Farm’s Raisin Bran or Mother’s Cinnamon Oat Crunch. My parents never bought me the sweet stuff as a kid either. I use the Fruity Bunnies as a dessert.

    the “save” pic makes my eyes go all wacky b/c of the blur – they keep trying to focus the picture. kind of a cool effect.

    • wastedlife says:

      @mac-phisto: I think they used something called tilt-shift photography. IIRC, it slightly moves the lens while still holding focus in the center. The edges are blurred and the focus gets a sort of exaggerated look. It almost looks like the objects are miniatures or models instead of the real thing. This link has a bunch of cool examples of tilt-shift:

    Vote for renaming “Save” to “A study in learning how to focus my camera correctly”, or perhaps “Blur, fuzz, and bad focus, with a side of blur.”

    No norks this week? Awww.

  8. Sarah McGee says:

    @wastedlife: It’s my photo and it is a tilt-shift with an 85mm PC Nikkor. Sorry I wasn’t more creative with the title, I took two, so there was save-1 and save-2.


  9. Trai_Dep says:

    Show us your tits! Oh. Cough. Sorry.

    I’d title the USPS one, Blond Elvis Has Left the Building, so minus points for naming it the Wall-E-esque IMG_57987.

    Garnishes should never overwhelm your cocktail so…

    As tempted as I am to go for the adorable kid (and she’s freaken adorable), I’m going for the Bauhaus influenced, industrial, America’s Religion. Only because the containers are empty and there’s rust collecting on them. Although (cough) I’d desaturate them a bit and probably radial blur the edges just a nudge. It has fearful symmetry.

    Good mix, though!

    That first picture reminds me that I have some of that Annie’s mac and cheese in the cupboard.
