Exception Handling

Last year I was able to write a little inventory of the Protestant churches in Germany. But not this year. I can't get that assignment out of my head, that somebody from another department of my company tried to commission me. It's some of these ideas somebody has, who obviously is believing that his gag will save the world. But actually it doesn't.

Have you ever done a webserver logfile analysis with electric bulbs? Something like one flash per pageview?

Worst thing is, I don't know how to get rid of this guy.

@Linerberry: Thanks, LB!

I prefer this monochrome image to all the other colored ones, although all the golds reds and blue look wonderful, my personal taste is for b/w. But I wouldn't trade my plasma tv for an old black & white one though, oh no. Getting rid of the other guy..... hmmm, that depends, is he your boss?

@Michael: Fortunately not, but he acts on behalf of them. B/W: I think this was appropriate here, as the whole ceiling is completely without colours, just different shades of (cream) white there.

Very cool frame, but something is missing here . Maybe not a fortunate light , so there is no enough of contrast !

@MARIANA: I think it's the small size if that image. At a larger size all the details of the stucco are precise and clear. Apart from that, this is a quite modest church; very bright and only white-painted walls; Baroque but also Protestant.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Great b&w frame, the short lens does the trick.

@Curly: I wasn't able to lie down the camera here, so this is just a free-hand shot.

another ceiling detail that makes you want to see more of!
(what is the technical term for this raised plaster detail...for the life of me I can't think of it)

...as to your problem: none of these are legal and so carry a health warning and/or term of imprisonment...blackmail, bratwurst in his drawer,deliver a horses head a la Godfather, play him some Val Doonican or adopt him and take him to puppy training classes to teach him the error of his ways!

@Ted: It's a stucco relief. :-)

*rofl* Ted, you're putting some ideas in my head...! :-D

So then, the price isn't right?

@Twelvebit: It's beyond price, no doubt. But my intellectual health is too...
