WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

Photobucket

Photobucket

Seen in Brussels on a rainy day !!

********

Did you know that Photobucket has a quite ignorant vice squat who doesn't know anything about history ? Don't be surprised if they take out a nude of Michel Angelo or Greek Statues ! I showed in The Baloon Parade in Brussels the Manneken Pis, a little statue of the 14th century. But because it appeared as a big baloon it offended the prude eyes of some Photobucket vice controllers and they took it out with the mention : THIS IMAGE VIOLATED OUR TERMS OF USE (I wonder what use ?? )

The dog pic is cool. Do you have any idea though why he's wearing that?

Re Photobucket:
I start to despise those Sites.
I had big issues with flickr almost two years ago and left, but just recently went back.
But they have the same morons running around there.
I wonder what they would do with their kids if they brought them to Europe. Blindfold them? :)

Love the funny dog, but that's a terrible and very annoying story about photobucket. Couldn't you just scream?! I use Picasa web albums now, and so far no problems at all. Maybe you can try that -- free, through Google/Blogger.

What does the dog wear on a sunny day?? great find, Gattina!!

I can't believe they took out your pic of the big baloon!!! Maybe somebody reported your pic, can you imagine? it's a mad world.

What a bunch of wowsers! Love the dog in sunnies.....weird.

Love the dog. Obviously, he is avoiding the paparazzi. Good for you for getting through the line!

Have you tried Slide.com for photo storage? Easy as pie and very good. Same with Picasa, as NicoleB points out.

those are cool-looking sunglasses!... and quite useful if you want free meals from strangers:)...

re photobucket: oh no! that's a shame! some "nude" statues and paintings are works of art and not pornographic materials... hope they'll be able to make the difference...

Cool shot. My dog wouldn't keep those on.

EastCoastLife said...

haha... the dog is so cool with the shades. :)

Not funny with the Photobucket though. I don't use them.

What a riot, I LOVE this photo. Thanks for a much needed laugh today.

Sorry to hear about the removal of your photo, it seems so silly that people can't tell the difference between porn and artistic statuary. Keep your chin up and keep on posting!

Loved the dog pic. Must be a movie star.
We live in an age when real pornography flows freely and this scares people who run family things. So sometimes they are too careful.

LOL. That's too much! :-)

Photobucket also doesn't like photos of women nursing their babies! There's a big to do about this!
