Ethics require me to say no, although I appreciate that you gave me the credit. I just thought it was a funny paper.

OK, Ken, I'll take the pressure off of you. Here is a photo of the car Steven R really wishes he had.

Yes it is. It was supposedly stabilized when moving by gyroscopes (hence the name it was given) but the training wheels extended when it came to a stop. It would have been a bear to turn with internal gyros, but it was a concept car for auto shows.

It's cool though, innitt? That'd be a head turner, cruisin the strip.

Now I know for sure.....there's at least one "pro" photographer out there doing a much worse job than most of the rest of us..

I'm shocked a "portrait" of the Queen like this would ever see the light of day.

I think a lot of us in the US were hesitant to criticize that photo, but it truly is awful. I really think I could have done better although I've always been hesitant to say that.

I've never been much of a "royalist" (I don't think this guy is either. ) but even I would cringe if that were my photo and someone published it.
I don't think anyone would be critiquing the royals if they said that was a lousy shot.
The photographer should not give up his day job.
