Smile, you're on PDP!


Today is August 1st and it's a DP theme day... All those who participate in it (see list below) had to take a self portrait in their favorite location. To be quite honest I could not decide on what my favorite location in Paris was so I thought to cheat a little bit. Here is the deal, today is your turn! If you have a web cam on your computer, click on the "Take a new snap" bar on the left, right below the "about me section" and follow the instructions. By magic, your photo will appear on PDP right away... [now closed]

List of participants: Porto, Alexandria, Manila, Twincities, Newcastle, Trier, Greenville, London, Saarbruecken, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Copenhagen, Sydney, Chattanooga, Rotterdam, Albuquerque, Washington DC [Jenni], Washington DC [Passante], Sharon, Singapour, Oulou, Seattle, Bastia, Berlin, Szentes, Honolulu, Guadalajara, Trondheim, Hyde, Willemette.

  2. Hi Eric,
    i just want to warn you, there is a robocop from Porto on your snap shot gallery but he is harmless, he's just playing with light:-D

  4. By strange coincidence I happened to post a portrait of myself today and I had no idea about the theme of the day. What a fun idea..

  5. Oh my, what a frightening Robocop!

    Love the picture Eric! If I had a webcam I'd snap a pic of me, but I find the things pointless as I never have decent conversations with people when they can see me!

  15. In Portuguese, we would say "Eric, sempre arrasando", which is difficult to translate but it roughly means something like "Eric, always over the top !"

    And I love the idea of an international DP-day on 1st August...

    Looking forward to seeing it officialized in my Dieux du Stade calendar...

  16. > Tomate. It's fun. It's a clever idea I think. Too bad you don't have a webcam.

    > Nuno. LOL I saw it this morning. But now Robocop is gone. Like your self portrait by the way (the guy who likes to play tricks!)

    > Carol. No it's not my camera. I lent mine for a week so I asked Michel, who runs Spirit of Paris to lend me one. And he did (It's a Canon EOS 10D but I find it much harder than my usual Kyocera to operate.

    > Freckled-one. Are yo talking about Santa? Is that really you ?

    > Soosha. LOL. Why on earth can't you have a decent conversation when people can see you?!

    > Anne. Yes I cheated. But my face was a little exposed recently so I thought people would be fed up!

    > Sally. You're so right. And this caused me so many problems in my life, LOL!

    > Rodney. No, why do you say that?

    > Philos. Well, you now Paris Plage, the heat wave...

    > Slinger. Thanks.

    > Terra vecchia. I added you/ Je t'ai ajouté dans la liste. Pour le lien c'est (c'est le calendrier d'Amanda de Richmond Daily Photo).

    > Edwin. Weird. It works fine though. What happened? Did you have a little window popping up?

    > Lisi. Yes, I hope we meet in person some day though. And like I explained above it's not my camera but a camera that I borrowed from Michel (Sprit of Paris).

    > Justine. Vous êtes française non ? Il n'y a quasi pas de faute dans votre mot ! En tout cas merci beaucoup ; je vais aller voir votre Skyblog!

    > Eric sempre arransando?! I like that!

  21. I do love the webcam idea... but alas, I have no webcam!

    this is also my first theme day, it's great.. it feels like a party =)

  22. Eric, you asked last week about the job situation with Megan. She has an interview on Thursday!!!

  23. Have you had any trouble with risque snap shots? Just in case, I will be sure and check back regulary to see (smiles).

    ReplyDelete
  24. So your favorite place is behind the camera, I guess we all knew! I didn't hear about the theme day but perhaps I didn't read the emails. Maybe I will participate next time!

  25. Moi non plus...no webcam.

    I was a little worried that we'd get some "porntastic" shots, but so far, so good.

    Clever idea!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Eric: I played with the webcam when it first came out, way back when, with a "state of the art" computer that had a whopping 32 MB of RAM (at the time it was a BIG deal!!!) (rolling eyes) ... Needless to say, the webcam crashed constantly...

    I know these things have come a long way and they can be fun, but I tend to agree with Soosha, I think it takes a great deal away from an online conversation. :)

  27. Really fun. I note a 'twin cities' blog. Who knew? Hi, Cottage Grove-ites. Where ya been? I'll be blogging through the other photos throughout the day.

    Hey, Michel, nice of you to lend the camera. Looking back at photos of our party, it does a good job. Of course, it's the singer, not the song.

  30. Consider Las Vegas DP a participant in this theme day... although we caught on a little late.
    Thanks for all the great shots Eric!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hmm...so that's what Eric looks like when he spots something.

    Btw, you forgot my link. In fact mine is the only one missing from the list of participants, as far as I can see. I guess that's what I get for not being active and visiting enough.. People forget me... :-(

  32. Generic Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.

  33. Propecia works by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. This reduces the level of hormone, DHT, in the scalp and allows hairs to revert to a normal growth cycle. This results in no further hair loss and significantly new hair growth in men with Male Pattern Hair Loss.

  34. Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.

  36. Generic Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.

  39. Generic Viagra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Generic Propecia is a medication used for the treatment of prostate cancer and pattern baldness in men. It is the main ingredient in two drugs – Proscar for prostate cancer and Propecia for pattern baldness. Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.
