If you take a picture while driving, never post it. Or never admit that you took it. Or ascribe it to someone else. Peter Falk voice: "This was taken by Mrs. Columbo, who was with me at the time. She's quite a shutterbug, she is. Oh yeah, she loves the cameras and the photography, the whole thing."
(Sorry, ancient television reference to Lt. Columbo's invented wife. I don't know about where you are, but the airwaves here are flooded with TV shows from thirty years ago, and it's freaking me out just a wee tiny bit...there are suddenly lots of shows on that I remember, but didn't remember that I remembered. Kinda like your life flashing in front of your eyes. The totally wasted part of it. But I digress.)
On the other hand, the above picture is a perfect example of "cool with warm accent." That was an assignment Paul Kennedy gave us in photo school...that I failed. Just wasn't able to come up with one at the time. And ever since, whenever I take one, I think of that assignment and think, "This would have worked." I should send this to Paul. I actually kinda like the picture.
For some reason, the opposite—warm with a cool accent—doesn't work nearly as well. Maybe Ogg evolved predisposed to see campfires glowing in the dangerous murky dusk.

Matthias Jennerholm, Stockholm: "Is this your first surrealistic post Mike? I only understood the Columbo part and that shooting while driving is illegal. Or something like that. Anyway I enjoyed my confusion."
Mike replies: Fish.
