The Antique Challenge

it's a photo challenge!
How 'bout some fun pics from our latest photo challenge?

A really great antique store, three cameras, lots of laughter, a top 100 countdown of the greatest rock songs of all time on the radio, and one suspicious (and rather creepy) salesclerk.

This time the challenge was all about texture...and boy, there is a LOT of texture in an antique store. The challenge comes with dealing with indoor lighting, macro-blurry-ness, those dratted tags, shooting through glass cases (blasted glare!) and composition with so much 'noise' in the background. We really had a good time with this one!

So, put on some oldies and enjoy the textures of the antique store...

Love, love, love the pics! Yeah, a great challenge it was - could've done without the creepy guy and all the Beattles songs...

One stroll without the captions/titles left me smiling. A second with your captions made me smile more and occasionally chuckle, my friend. You know how to pack so much into each word. Enjoyable visit to your slideshow!

You managed quite well, in spite of the obstacles!

You have a picture of a "Baby Ben" Alarm clock! I love these and collect them and this one is a brown/cream version I don't see often. Do you remember if it worked? What antique store is it at??

Debra, the antique store is in Fife right next to the Poodle Dog restaurant on 99. You should have no trouble finding it. The clock was in the back-ish part of the rather large store. I have no idea if it worked or not, but it looked cool enough to take a pic of, that's for sure.

Good luck getting it, my friend!
