I just returned from my study abroad in India last Monday, so this is pretty recent. This was taken while I was in Dharavi, in the slums of Mumbai (where they filmed a small part of Slumdog Millionaire). The whole ground was in decay. I just picked one picture at random!

From my last weekend of August bike camping trip.



That's decay on a couple of levels.

Golly, I'm still waiting for someone to post a snapshot of something unrecognizable from the back of the bottom shelf in their fridge!

Not sure why I can't just get the image to show in the posting. This has been a problem before.

There you go, Bill.

I don't want it to show up under my forumn name due to nature of thread. Try taking the direct link and referencing how printing in the quoted text above, 1) remove the and 2) replace it with [IMG] [/IMG]. I typically use photobucket rather than my flickr account and that is the format of the photobucket forumn link. Flickr doesn't offer that so may have to manually put it in their direct link option that you were using.

EDIT: the [url] doesn't show up when posting, so just begin and end the link with [img]

Not a particularly interesting shot...but it has a story. This is intended to be left out for 72 hours and then frozen. It is a taste tester training item for "putrid". They don't have to eat it, they'll smell it.
