Me: “Computer, why is my photo challenge entry so late?”
Circuit Board: *pause* “Does not compute.”
Me: “You’re no help… I should have asked a magic eight ball. Can you at least throw me some Power Ball numbers, or… ”
Circuit Board: *sticks out tongue* “Not my deal. I come from a blender.”
Me: “Blah. Why do I even keep you laying around?”
Circuit Board: “Because you are a fiend for Mojitos.”
(*Just in case anyone is curious this board came from a keyboard, not a blender.*)
About this image: digital photograph, moderately modified
Yours may be late, SIG, but mine is non-existant. I just couldn’t get inspired for this theme.
Anyway, nice shot, it reminds me of an aerial view of streets.
This one seemed a bit difficult to me again. Probably because I haven’t been getting out very much lately. *sigh* Oh well. What can you do?! 🙂
Circuit boards can be so difficult to deal with.
This one’s STILL in time-out.
Aug 03? I’d say it was early not late
yeah, I just make all that stuff up. Not sure why I do that (mostly I just like the little bit of added ‘weight’ of having a some type on the bottom… I think)…
Wait — you make mojitos in a blender?
Haha – Probably not.
I just make stuff up here.
Just keeping everyone on their toes, you know! 🙂
Who is the guy that has to come up with product codes for everything. He must be a math wiz
I think he’s purple and wears a monocle.
And likes to count.
Ah ah ah!
I think you are getting mixed up with Professor Plum and Colonel Mustard!!!!!
If he keeps up the sass I say you threaten to drop HIM in the blender.
not a bad idea, Dishy…
inanimate objects just don’t behave the way they used to…
I am currently deciding if I should keep an old motherboard or not. It would have been useful for this exercise. Very nice shot! You can always produce an art photo out of ordinary things!
I’ve turned into quite the pack rat (which probably isn’t good), because even if something is completely broken I convince myself I can use it later for some random project or another.
Thank you very much, sir – you are too kind! 🙂
Sounds like an artist to me. You can see potential in everything!
Love this humorously delinquent circuit board talking numbers.
Me: Hahaha… thank you very much! We’re both very happy to hear that!
C.B.: You took the words right out of my processor.
Cool. Nice angle!
I need to know your secret. I’ve been talking to my computers for years, nary a murmur of response.
Great shot – very Tron-esq.
So that’s the evil that lurks under my fingertips!
Hahaha… kinda’ scary, isn’t it!? 🙂
Dude way to get to the core of the matter. Way to go. i love it.
Hahaha… thanks very much, JB – I appreciate that, my friend! 🙂
I’m glad you explained this wasn’t from a blender because I was having a hard time understanding the board’s motivation and background.
Ha! When it comes to electronics, it’s impossible to get very far without a good character motivation study…
And… exactly after how many mojitos you had this conversation? hahahahaaa!!
maybe just one or two?!
Good detail shot and an unusual choice of subject. I loved the disjointed dialogue as well – sounds like me after a few pints of Fuller’s ESB 😉
Thanks you very much! I like to approach these challenges from unique angles if I get a chance… sometimes it takes quite a bit of head scratching first!
I’m glad you enjoyed that… I often struggle with the verbal part of my blog… I’m always hopeful I can keep things somewhat entertaining!
Thank you so much for stopping by (and your kind comment as well) – I very much appreciate that! 🙂
Cool photo! It was exciting getting that board out of the computer remember? Who knew circuit boards were so sharp!?
The way mine works I always expected they’d be rather dull!
Probably just operator issues, I guess!
Thank you so much! I LOVE the image you have posted for this challenge as well – great concept! 🙂
I like this one. Going monochrome takes the new edge off of it. I love how some of the resistors look like cars in the left side of the shot. Good imagination for the prompt.
I’m very happy to hear you liked this one!
Originally I was thinking about turning something like this into a painting, too!
I guess it’s ‘on the list’…
(which is only about ten notebooks long at this point)!
