CDXLVI: Bignosian

© Lani Kai
Trypto: ooooh
Lani Kai: I pushed the exposure to ISO 16000 in post process
Lani Kai: it was shot at ISO 6400
Lani Kai: with that said, it's still less grainy than the shot on ISO 3200 film from the other day
Trypto: he has a big nose
Lani Kai: he does indeed

CDXLV: On Monstrosity

© Lani Kai
Trypto: this looks like a still from security camera footage
Lani Kai: it's ISO 3200 film
Trypto: or one of the grainy photographs people use to prove the existence of UFOs or the Loch Ness Monster
Trypto: those blurry lights in the back are aliens
Trypto: or Loch Ness Monster scales
Lani Kai: well, good
Lani Kai: I was going for the Loch Ness Monster look
Trypto: the Loch Ness Monster is hungry for some cheese and crackers at this cafe?
Lani Kai: no, it is a fierce monster
Lani Kai: it seeks human blood and flesh
Lani Kai: hence there is no one here
Lani Kai: they have all been eaten
Trypto: it has good table manners
Trypto: there are no crumbs to be seen
Lani Kai: well, it comes from a wealthy Scottish family with a long heritage
Lani Kai: they teach manners from a young age

CDXLI: A Discourse on French Chocolate

© Lani Kai
Trypto: the street of the chocolate?
Lani Kai: yes
Trypto: the use of the definite article is a little odd?
Trypto: especially as there appear to be at least two varieties of chocolate in the illustration
Lani Kai: are you suggesting it should be "la rue des chocolats"?
Trypto: assuming the chocolats are worthy of definite articles to begin with
Lani Kai: so chocolate street?
Trypto: it'd be the difference between "chicken salad" and "THE chicken salad"
Lani Kai: no, "salad of the chicken"
Trypto: did you obtain any of this so-called street chocolate
Lani Kai: no, the street stuff is not legit
Lani Kai: you don't want none of that
Trypto: where can I get the good stuff?
Lani Kai: can't say on here
Lani Kai: the feds might be watching

© Lani Kai
Trypto: why have you been hiding this!
Trypto: you post a million silly fisheye pictures
Lani Kai: you don't understand how much fun a fisheye is
Lani Kai: because you've never used one
Trypto: I've never eaten poop either
Trypto: but I can tell it's not very fun

CDXXXVIII: Satanic Photography

© Lani Kai
Trypto: that's a very sharp turn
Trypto: there should be a sign there
Trypto: like in your other one
Lani Kai: or so you think
Trypto: or so I am mislead to believe by your devil photography!
Trypto: do you know who else has fisheyes?
Trypto: Satan!
Lani Kai: and you know this how?
Lani Kai: did it say so in the Bible?
Trypto: yes, in the appendix
