There on the meadow in the dark we stood. The alien and I communicated via telepathy only. It told me it wanted to leave me a message of utmost importance, it would be the ingredients for keeping this planet peaceful eternally.
I was excited, alien knowledge was soon to be written down for the first time in history. Right in front of me.
The alien gave me a note, looking meaningfully at me and told me it wouldn't come back. Its mission was over now with delivering the message. Then its "hand" was putting the note into mine. I didn't and couldn't look at it right away. We "said" our farewells. Completely in shock, awe, whatever it was ... I walked home, totally amazed.

This is going to make world history, I told myself, and finally looked at that snippet and ...

What was that?! Oh, man! Whose is supposed to read that!?


Maybe you can decipher it. It makes sense actually. Just not the sense following this story.

Kodak DX6440
F3.4, 1/128, Iso 100, program
cropped, contrast, colors, resized

Exif info says year "2003" because I seldomly set the time and date after inserting new batteries. This photo was taken today on June 21st, 2009, Sunday.

Here is the original.

Well, I really haven't posted in a great while!

I hope this fits the criteria for this months theme. I do believe it has this feeling of alien spaceship. As for the original, hmm.. I really did not take one. I was aiming for something alien looking rather than the "zoom effect". Here is a picture of Building (NOT BY ME!!!). It really is a wonderful building since it has so many wonderful angles. Anyways, any feedback would be most appreciated.

Camera: 40D
Date Taken: June 19th?
Tv: 1/125S
Av: F22
ISO: 100
Post Process: (+Black and +Greens that's pretty much it)

Cya Later!

This near IR shot shows a Nemesis-X02 ship from Andromeda federation marooned on Planet VEGA, where it was allegedly attacked by the destroyer BST666 of the Oblix Clan. It is reported to have developed leak in its anti matter confinement system. The crew is safe and is on its way back.

The Linear Aerospike Engine currently being designed by Lockheed Martin in association with NASA is reported to be inspired by an earlier version of the same vehicle.
