Your most memorable shot 2020[edit]

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

Over the course of the past two years, we've been sharing pictures that have a special meaning with each other at the start of the new year. Today, I'm inviting you add your most memorable shot of 2020 to this page:

I hope you, your familiy, and your friends are well during these difficult times. I wish you all the best for 2021 and I can't wait to see what your most memorable shot of 2020 looks like.

Warmly, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 20:50, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Next Commons Photographers meeting featuring large format photographer Ben Horne[edit]

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I'm happy to invite you to our next virtual meeting on Saturday, March 20, at the usual time. As I mentioned during our last get-together, I'd like to invite external guests every now and then, given that it seems good to expand our view and learn something from someone outside our community.

Our first external guest, Ben Horne, will talk about large format wilderness photography, followed by a question-and-answer session. Ben is maybe one of best known contemporary large format photographers in the United States. On his excursions to national parks, he shoots 8×10 film and talks about his adventures on his YouTube channel which has attracted more than 48,000 followers so far. He is YouTube's first, and longest active landscape photography vlogger and I'm thrilled that he has agreed to join our next meeting and talk about his experiences.

If you're interested in joining this meeting, please sign up on the page below:

Also, don't forget to post your question(s) prior to the meeting on the following page in order to ensure a good and fruitful question-and-answer session:

I'm very much looking forward to this event and I hope you'll be able to join.

All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 21:53, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

In Soviet Russia is not Humor in Russia[edit]

[1] - it's not actually Humor in Russia, it's Humor about Russia, but you won't hear those jokes inside the country. It would arguably be insulting, except that Russia isn't Soviet any more; but they still don't make these specific jokes. --GRuban (talk) 04:10, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

GRuban@ Yeah, Category:In Soviet Russia covers something resembling an ethnic joke, except the butt is not the nationality but the state, more or less. Political humor, perhaps? Darn if I know. I knew the redcat that it had was useless, and it seems to me almost every category ought to have at least two parental cats. I have every confidence someone, somewhere, can handle it better than I did. Jim.henderson (talk) 00:40, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

incorrect address/wrong building being used in an article[edit]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_talk:51_W75_St_9th_Av_jeh.jpg is actually at 76th St and is incorrectly being used as the location of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Krim_siblings Danny Rathjens (talk) 23:07, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

Thank you kindly, @Danny Rathjens: you are correct and the error is all mine. Well, someone else might possibly have misled me by mistaken coordinates, but if that is so, it's still my fault for not checking. I have repaired the error in the Wikpedia article, and begun the repair here in Wikimedia Commons. I shall also check Wikidata, where another record of the information might possibly be incorrect. Thanks again; having uploaded thousands of pictures with urban locations I am grateful to anyone who can catch my errors. For that matter, it's possible I'll be able to get to that location tomorrow to shoot the correct location. Jim.henderson (talk) 00:47, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Reminder: Commons Photographers meeting tomorrow[edit]

Just a quick reminder: the meeting with large format-photographer Ben Horne will happen tomorrow, Saturday, March 20. If you haven't done yet, please consider signing up for the event and add your questions to this page. This will be our first virtual meeting in 2021 and I'd be super happy if you could join.

Interesting category you added[edit]

Hello,

I noticed that you added Category:Anthropomorphic pareidolias to Category:Princess of Hope. This opened up a whole new array of categories that I did not know about and will explore further. So thank you! Best, Krok6kola (talk) 16:11, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

Always pleased to help, @Krok6kola:; this is the kind of thing I find when a picture that I'm recategorizing for another reason has a strange category that sends me into previously unimagined parts of our vast category tree. My way to this one was even more indirect; one of my old pictures had been categorized by another editor, whom I followed into other changes that led me here. Deep rabbit holes can be found anywhere and lead us everywhere. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:39, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

File:Hotel Penn south side rainy jeh.jpg[edit]

This image doesn't show the Hotel Pennsylvania, at 7th Avenue and 33rd st, it shows the old Hotel Taft building, today the Hotel Michelangelo, at 7th Avenue and 51st St. That's why I removed the "Category:Hotel Pennsylvania" from it. User:jamesluckard (User talk:jamesluckard) 02:20, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

Ah. Thanks, @Jamesluckard: I wasn't paying attention, misremembered my location, and let myself be misled by a not very close resemblance. Drat; I must rename, recategorize, and adjust coordinates. That's what I get for letting dumb things like this happen. Good thing someone's awake; thanks again. Jim.henderson (talk) 02:50, 20 August 2021 (UTC)
Your photo submissions are fantastic, everyone makes a tiny mistake now and then. :) I just wanted to be sure you knew I wasn't starting an edit war:) User:jamesluckard (User talk:jamesluckard) 06:04, 20 August 2021 (UTC)
