I thought this might turn into a cool thread, I’m not sure what would be the best way to do it though, embed the pics in your post? Or just link to them in the post?
Maybe the powers that be on the forum could decide?

Anyway, post some of your fave photos on here, they can be pics you took, or just cool images you found online, perhaps some art work you really like?

Ok I’ll go first, I’ll embed, and if it’s decided that links are the better option I’ll edit to change that.

I took these photos this morning walking the dog, it’s all about 2 minutes from my house, my camera isn’t great, but I think they came out ok.

I believe this to be a gatehouse :
think it was a chapel)

Ah right. And you are sure you didn’t bring that medieval shopping trolley yourself?

I mean, you did a find over there that will possibly shock the archaeological world? :lol:

Lol, I know, I’m probably going to be famous! :P
But it makes sense I guess when you think about it, I mean….how else would they have gotten all those medieval beer cans & vodka bottles back from the medieval mall?
:P

i am thinking that we should employ the taser for the jerks who littered in such a beautiful spot. i’ll just wait inside the castle till i see the litterers and tase them.

then they will say \"don’t tase me bro\"

did anyone else see that on the news a while back? i say it all the time. i know it was not nice of the police to tase that boy, there was like 6 cops on one collage boy, but everytime he says \"don’t tase me bro\" i can’t help but giggle. is that wrong?

You asked for favourite pics huh… here are mine. I took them in 2003 in the north of India. It aren’t that good pics (except the 3rd one, I like that one very much), but it’s the memory that goes with it… Organizing an expedition myself with 5 people, a buddhist guide and his assistent, and some donkeys to carry the luggage (tents, sleeping bags, food, water, etc.) and then climb the Stok Kangri in 5 days. Awesome trip, will never forget that. The eternal snow, the impressive Himalaya mountains, minus 20 degrees at night and still holding on, that last 250 meters to the top that took over 2 hours to climb… Anyway, enjoy the few pics! :lol:

Wow, very cool! I probably wouldn’t have the stamina to make it up the mountain though :P
I’ve always wanted to do a bit of Traveling in the East, it looks beautiful.
My Brother went backpacking through Asia (Vietnam, China, Thailand, Korea etc.) came back with some stunning shots, and he was actually in Thailand during a military coup! I was more than a bit jealous :P (about the backpacking, not the coup :P)

Are you Buddhist Arthur?

Honest answer? No. I’m non-religious and actually very negative about ALL religions. Buddhism however, attracts me as a life style, a way of life. I respect their rather peaceful opinions and some other points of view very much. I’m critical about their treatment of women sometimes (not allowed to have higher positions in the monasteries for example) and also I’m not into the re-birth theme so much. But what I do like is their way of having many different teachers (buddhas) where every individual can learn from, with a real life teacher or not. Also I like very much their respect for animals, as they think an animal is equally important as a human being. Well, lots to tell about this subject I guess. :wink:

No. I’m not really religious or at least I’m not really into any big organized religion. I think that Buddhism has some good points, but I’m not Buddhist or anything really. :wink:

Yeah same opinion here I guess… Sometimes I like to say \"music is my religion, and the rock guitar is my altar\", but well, that’s just when I’m being a bit silly. But it’s somewhat true however.
