I used Paint.Net 3.0 I have absolutely zero photoshop ability.

It is a good alternative to Photoshop...and it's free. It is AWESOME...although I think it is available only on PC.

Now children, I know you're all having lots of fun playing with your "paint programs", but let's remember the rules! Whoever posts the correct picture first, gets to choose the next photo. Looks like badpenguin beat Ellen by a hair with that last "Thomas Kinkade" cottage. You two can fight it out!

OOps, Guess I did not understand the rules, I was just happy to have figured out how to get my scoot in a picture. I am off to search the web for that shot now!

Thanks Kermit for getting us back on track!

ok so this is driving me nuts!

I know where all three pictures are FROM.. but can't find the exact shots through GIS. I could grab stills from the movies, but that defeats the purpose

can we get some kind of hint to help find the exact shots?

Not yet, but using "google image" you need to first find the picture I posted. And repost it with your scoot.

Then we can talk volcano's

good luck!

This one is totally cheating, but lets move on.

The idea is not to confound, but to share a sense of community, some humor, and interesting images. Let's try to keep the background image a little simpler, and maybe a little more mainline/obvious.

Next image posted is 'it.'

I won't be posting a second one to be found.

Just post a new one.

The bastard who posted the last one won't care - the day is up, new one each day - it's virtual scootering, so get to your desk, turn on your Mac and ride.....
