It existed in France as well, until the mid-sixties I'd say (sometimes, in remote parts of the country, elder teachers ignored new prescriptions and instead, carried on teaching what they learnt decades ago). Don't really know why... Perhaps because "someone" thought left-handeds were abnormal or something.
Here, they were called "gauchers contrariés" ("antagonized lefties" if my clumsy translation makes any sense).
Their tactics didn't make sense.... "gauchers contrariés" by sadistic righties

Still happens in parts of the world. When I was in Vietnam, people kept slapping my hand when they saw me writing with my left hand.

It took a while for me to realize why these people would jabber unintelligibly at me while slapping my hand.

There are some really interesting interpretations of the theme. And they are all great. I'm glad I dont have anything this month, wouldnt be in the race. It would never have occurred to me to do some of these things. Three cheers for imagination!
Who do you think you are with those lame excuses? Me?

My first (and maybe last) entry is with the Olympus XZ-1. I just couldn't resist!

What is and what is not a Point n Shoot!


***Note: No Egos were meant to be harmed in the making of this image

I feel either honored or offended. It should be noted that I separated that argument from the rest of the P&S contest, so at least I compartmentalized the blaze

Bart and kyteflyer...... i humbly bow to the sweet madness in all of us

And for #2.... The conflict is photographing vs driving (was driving at 40mph and shot this without looking at the lcd)



Don't try this at home! Leave it to the professionals.
Those people on the bike are doing something much more harmful than what you are by taking their photo. No protective gear at all! If they lay that bike over, they're dead.

unixrevolution..... conflicting opinions are not a problem (i generally have at least 2 on the same subject. Also i wanted to say thanks for pointing out that riding without protective gear is a conflict also.

AND...... we are still waiting to see your and kyteflyers entries

You brought back 2 years of Latin in high school. Sinister (from sinistra) is left-handed, the wrong hand, devil's hand, not to be gauche or anything, heheh

Ivoire, great idea and execution!

G.T, is that 'walking out on a conflict'?
Interesting angle and selective colouring.

Traffic in Paris

Traffic in Paris, always a conflict :ugh:

Some weeks ago, I was in Paris for my work.
Last day, I took a taxi to la Gare du Nord around 5pm.
Still shaking when I remember the trip

I had some time one evening to go out for a walk. I was staying in the vicinity of La Défense.
Caught this shot of the endless line of traffic towards the centre (that's the Arc de Triomphe in the background).




Panasonic FX500.

Nice one GT....... conflicting red vs BnW, straight vs angular and fast vs slow

Bart..... looks like the "Arc de NO Triomphe" over the traffic problem

@Ivoire: I forgot commenting, that was a great idea.
@Bart; the woman wasn't intended to be here. Took the photo while driving, with that angle, through a dirty windshield. My idea was, conflicts sometimes arise from imposed limitations.

Don't take no offense, but the correct spelling is la Défense. The traffic in Paris hasn't improved those last years, and that's on purpose. Needless to say I thoroughly disagree and won't write any further about this.

La Défense-Gare du Nord, 5PM, is errr... not advisable Subway line 1 down to Châtelet, then line 4. Overcrowded, too

Most certainly no offence taken, G.T. Quite the contrary: I'm glad you pointed that out!

Conflicting Perspectives




Both images from my X90 with a little help from Photoshop

Entered just to give NeatKnight something to do at the end of this month. Can't let him off too easily.

Anton, I see double conflict in the first one, birds versus dog, and then between the guinea fowl themselves. I've never seen the light colour, must be an albino?
