Elvis
 
I found this pic on the internet. I don't know if it was supposed to come out this way, or was manipulated after the fact, but everyone that I've shown it to recognizes the subject immediately. A few streaks of light on a black background. I guess photography is art.

Darn it all!

It is amazing what our minds can do with even the slightest bit of information...

I saw Elvis. I still have the Vivitar 283 that lit up the Capital Center Stage. Gotta find those shots.

I saw elvis too. He presided over my wedding a few years ago.
Viva Las Vegas!

Elvis Presley of Course. The one and only, saw him in 1974 at the Capital Center in DC. Waited in line four hours to get the tickets. One for me, one for my Girlfriend, and one for her Mom. Her Mom LOVED Elvis, was a teen-ager in the '50s. It was a lot of fun.

Clevername, I know Elvis. That is NOT the real Elvis.

WHAT? You mean my whole marriage is a sham!?
I prefer to think he's just lost a lot of weight since the '70's. :)

I'll admit that I didn't recognize it. My first thoughts were that it might be Robert F. Kennedy, or maybe Wally Cleaver (Beaver's big brother.)

Yes, it's amazing what the brain can do with a few snippets of information, but one of the things it can do is mislead you.

I saw Elvis the other day sort of

Elvis played at my high school(big school) in 1956 in my old hometown in North Carolina, a little diner outside of town still has a lot of Elvis stuff there as it was where he had lunch before doing the show. Heck there is a waitress that still works there that was there when he came in! Of course I did not see him since I wasnt even born until 1957...

Nah, that's just urban legend, he's really on a secret island owned by the government with Elvis, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Buckley and all the others. :cool:

Doctor Zero 11-03-2005 11:29

No, no, I'm quite sure Clevername really did see Elvis. After all, it does say "Proof" on the pictures. And it's on the internet. So it must be true. ;)
