A “G” stories voting reminder and more solid stuff

Writers — well, some writers — are needy people. Writers want readers for their works and hope said readers will find something to like in what they read . . . but writers also dread the possibility of rejection if not outright derision. That fear of rejection often keeps writers from sharing their work.

The writers of the Alphabet Challenge are — perhaps — made of sturdier stuff because they not only choose to share, but also hope that — if you’ve read them — you voted for your favorite of the “Alphabet Challenge G-Stories” HERE. That’s also where you can find links to the stories in case you want to read them before voting (you should totally do that).

If you’ve already voted, thank you.

Oh, yeah . . . the writers were wondering if you could, you know, like, share these stories with friends and families. I mean, only if you think the stories are worth reading, of course. That would be swell, we think.

Anyway, solid stuff . . .

Yeah, I know you saw that coming.

Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress all put up a picture preview. It makes it difficult surprising readers with the visuals. It used to be I could cycle through the photos and choose which to show, but that option is either not working properly or it’s been removed.

In the previous Hard Subjects post, I showed each photo with its variations (painterly treatments and B&G&W treatments) but for this post, I decided to lump the variants in individual galleries.

So, these next photos are the originals.

I mentioned before one can usually find faces, animals, and representations of various objects if one cares to look. For instance, in the above photo . . . can you spot C3PO’s head?

The first photo requires a bit more effort to see Jabba the Hutt.

Here one might see a few things, but unless you are into Marvel movies or comics, you might miss Deadpool’s face. There are a couple of other faces I recognize, but can’t think of the characters as I write this; I just recognize them as familiar.

OK, this is also a tad difficult . . . perhaps a sheep-man face, the helmet of a Medieval knight, and some sort of Egyptian representation of a guard or Pharoah can all be seen by some, but it requires as serious of an imaginative leap as seeing a misshapen and “soft” skull peeking out from between other rocks . . . er . . . solid stuff.

Anyway, here are the galleries of the variants. Perhaps it makes identification of faces and figures easier, or perhaps not.

First off, the painterly stuff.

Then, the Black & Gray & White stuff.

As always, you can click on any of the photos for a larger version to open in a new tab or window. Should you want to see the full-size photos, that’s possible if you go to the SmugMug gallery HERE.

Finally, a gallery of the original photos follows.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

  1. I used to love the option to choose which picture to put in Reader. Was quite cranky when that all changed…nagged WP trying to explain. When writing fiction with a twist at the end, WP selected image can scoop everything and ruin the surprise. (Like they care. Sigh)
    You could run rock pictures everyday and I’d be happy – our whole family was rock hounds…we picked up rocks wherever we went – it was rocking’ geography. My grandparents even picked up rocks in Europe when they were very young. Had serious geologists in family. Sorry, really nutty about rocks – which have so many stories to tell

      Thank you, pmoth.

      Not only WordPress, but Twitter and Facebook both pick a photo (sometimes it seems at random). Kind of annoying.
      I’ve always picked up rocks from our travel destinations . . . more so when airlines didn’t have weight restrictions (think “The Long, long Trailer”). By the way, what pissed me off in that movie is that Ricky throws the rocks away after they negotiated the difficult road. What an asshole!

      I have a few more rock photos to share as well as planning a macro shoot of interesting rocks.

    Two thumbs up for the rock photos . . . and two thumbs down for Ricky!


  3. You rock, Emilio!
    I sure enjoy these photos…and I find all sorts of cool objects and faces trying to hide!
    We must not take life for granite these days. Sorry if I’m being too sedimental! Maybe I should be so boulder! I won’t use any stone puns…I’ll just say “May the quartz be with you!” and go now!
