Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

In 2009 I participated in JPG’s 365 Days theme. I uploaded a pic a day of myself. On 25 June 2009 I uploaded this pic of myself infront of my old iMac showing a pic of Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) crying at his press conference. He stayed to complete his term. It seems the voters of SC liked the Lt. Gov. even less than they did Mark.

If you are interested in political corruption in the USA these two wikipedia sites would be a good place to start:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federal_political_scandals_in_the_United_Stateshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_state_and_local_political_scandals_in_the_United_States“Don’t buy a single vote more than necessary. I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for a landslide.” Joseph P. Kennedy

“The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.” Bess Myerson

“Corruption is worse than prostitution. The latter might endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariably endangers the morals of the entire country.” Karl Kraus

“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Lord Acton

PS I took my 365 Days pic to Picnik to give it a little B & W effect’s selective color and a Border frame

Oh...yeah...and if you're interested in my 365 Days photo shoot you can find all 365 lame pics here:

    We the public elect these individuals...and keep electing them, the smart honest people know better..look at what we watch on television, shows about deception, ahh thats funny, violence, sex, tv commercials tell us what we 'need'...society is warping the peoples character, they want to be led, to have some foolish politician tell them what to believe, weak people want to be led...by people like Sanford..look at the puke they vomit up....and this is only a small fraction of the problems facing our country and others...is there an honest politician?...is there an honest used car dealer?....uh...negative on that buckwheats...I am thankful for jpg and Mr Linton....this cat has some good stuff...

    Gosh! He should have used Johnson's No More Tears Baby Shampoo. I am unaccustomed to this kind of tearful political admission. In Louisiana, no one cries over corruption. It's like Neruda's "The Word." A poem should not mean but be. Replace A POEM with CORRUPTION.
