Ten random things: July 14

Ten of pictures currently on my hard drive that I think are self-expressive:

Via elgoose, caerwynx, and fox1013 comes a meme that can double as a list of ten things. Here are the rules:

  • Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
  • NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words. (N.b.: I followed the rules about captions, but I did use alt-text for all the images, so if you have IE you'll be able to see them. I'm not going to sacrifice accessibility just because Microsoft doesn't want to build a browser that conforms to HTML standards.)
  • They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
  • You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

That said, if you have any questions about the images, feel free to ask them in the comments.

An eleventh picture

I was going to use this picture for the ten pictures meme I did earlier today, but decided it would have violated the rule, since it's a picture I created myself, not one I'd downloaded. I created it for a TWoP Pixel Challenge a bunch of years ago; the challenge, if I recall, was to create a new television network. I thought this was pretty funny, but I think the joke may have gone over the heads of a lot of people. See, at the time there was a Canadian media company called CHUM Limited. Their logo was vaguely similar to the one I created here; the real one was chunkier, but the legs of the M flared out the same way, so close enough. And speaking of the logo, I think I did a really nice job on it. In all, it's one of the better Pixel Challenges I did, if I do say so myself.
