je viens de voir un escargot derrière une fenêtre emprisonnée par des barrières chez un autre membre d'aminus3 et là je vois un qui s'est vraiment évadé luxueusement!!!
passe d'agréables moments et à bientôt

Wonderful ! This reflection and all setup is fabulous !

Funny that the R-R hasn't been dusted in a day or two ... close shots find the dust in my house too! ;D
How did you enjoy the museum?

@Judy aka L@dybug: A fun place. What surprised me most about this photo is that I used my small point & shoot Canon because the museum people are really strict about not having cameras inside the museum proper. It came out far clearer and better than I expected. The RR and snail(s) are out in the lobby near the museum store, so it was ok to shoot away. But Sammy and my Nikon were too big and conspicuous to carry around inside.
nice - clear, crisp and that's just the reflection!!! bravo to you!

Which of the two will most quickly :)) too funny this shot, superb capture !!!!! Good day.

No wonder they are so expensive in French restaurants. Look at the transportation costs.

@Gary: Hilarious! And probably true. These things would never be seen dead riding in a Ford.
Haha! I don't worry about the price, I wouldn't eat one. But they are great to photograph and a perfect hood ornament. Fun shot. I captured the same if not very similar not long ago. I'm happy to know you made it to the Dali. Perhaps a small point and shoot in the shape of an escargot would make it all the way into the museum. Nice clarity.

@Barbara: I actually have eaten escargot... once. I would again if prepared well - lots of garlic and butter or olive oil. Sort of like calamari or alligator tail - texture plus technique/ingredients = delicious. When are you going to start posting pics again?
Oh I LOVE this Glenn ;-) This is wonderful and very clever ;-)

I thought that was real when I first saw it. Wonderfully creative shot and title!
28 Jul 2011 1:28am
Really, how odd..... awesome clarity!

What an amazing relationship for art . . but being different is what it takes, of course !
28 Jul 2011 9:58am
Oh I like this, with the reflection....it's funny and wonderfully artistic! Great job, Glenn.

I like these snail photos on the shining car. I'm still not sure if the snails are real or not :)

@Albert: Lol. The only way you'll know for sure is to visit this Dali Museum in St. Pete.
Awesome! Close up and personal!! :)
