    My handle is my nickname from when I played football in high school. Well...I didn't actually play...it was more like holding the clipboard.

    Re: Explain your login name

    Cool idea for a thread, bit IMO not really off-topic at all. Steve, we should move this to VF. I think we'd have a gazillion folks chime in.

    As for Asylum Steve, well, sort of self-explanitory. Especially if you've met me... :crazy:

    Still, there is a bit of a story behind it. If you've been to my web site, then it's not much of a stretch to see the connection with The Photo Asylum. In fact, photoasylum has been my handle on several online forums.

    But when I joined pr.com, I wanted my first name in my user ID just for, well, familiararity or whatever. And so, I decided to use my name but keep the "Asylum" to reinforce the spirit of my web site and personality... :ciappa:

    Re: Explain your login name

    Sushigaijin is the promotional name of my personal chef/sushi class side business. I teach people how to make sushi at small private parties, hence sushi. Gaijin translates roughly to something like "F-ing foreign white person" which I thought was kind of tongue-in-cheek. Those who get it, think it's funny. Those who don't, don't usually ask questions. That, and it sounds good, abbreviates well, and sticks in people's head.

    Actually I haven't done a party in quite some time, since I've been busy with keeping the restaurant I work at from self-destructing. Such is life. The side business pays better, a shame it isn't steady work :cryin:

    I think it's funny.

    I come from a Croatian family and we have a name like that in our language. I don't think the F-word is in there though.:idea: I'd have no clue how to spell it out because it has a tongue roll in the middle of the word. Feddeshtee. Something like that with a roll of the tongue where the second D is.
    It's not blurry. It's bokeh.

    Re: Explain your login name

    Well, first let me explain that I'm a dork, and I have an over-active imagination. I've always thought Angler fish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglerfish) and other creatures with light emitting organs were really cool, and I thought as a photographer it would be very handy to have such organs. So, I looked up what they're called, and it's a "photophore." If I had those, I thought that would make me photophorous. Like I said, I'm a dork.

    That expalins a lot then Paul.
    So I guess the question is do you have any "light emitting organs"?

    Mine is a long standing one too, that I use everywhere but Flickr.

    It's a common misconception, actually. People think I'm emitting light when I'm really just reflecting it.

    I don't think there is a way to change your handle. You'd have to start over and reset your post count to zero... hardly worth it my opinion

    Re: Explain your login name

    All you have to do is look at my avatar and you'll get the meaning of my handle. Check out my mod bio and you'll see how long I've been around. When I first started on this site I was a lurker and it seemed most every one was much younger. When I started to post I went with something that would set me apart from the kids.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    "Michael Fanelli" still has a post count, so he probably just re-registered and started over at zero at that point. I don't think there's any other way to change your name other than to do this.

    Steve's right. This isn't so off-topic. I'm going to move it. There's a whole group of people who have never known the joys of off-topic.

    Hey, cool thread.

    Canuck935:
    I was born in Canada, but I don't remember much since we moved to San Diego, CA when I was really young. One of my relatives in Canada sent me a shirt with the old comic book character Captain Canuck on it, which I wore frequently in high school. I was also in ROTC during high school. So when I finally made Captain in ROTC, my peers started calling me Captain Canuck. I eventually went on to Major, and then it became just Canuck.

    So.. I got the nickname Canuck in ROTC, and our ROTC unit number was 935.

    Re: Explain your login name

    I'm a brand newbie here. My login name is a reflection of my main web site: http://www.chevyasylum.com

    At one time I had quite a number of Chevy muscle cars and it got kinda crazy trying to keep them all maintained and so on..."asylum" was suggested as a descriptive name for what was going on. Here's one of them:



    I don't have as many cars as I used to, and I even own a Ford (1929 Model A rat rod) so the name isn't as valid as it use to be.

    I started with a cheap Sony digital camera (the photo above was taken with the cheap Sony) and eventually moved to a Canon 350D. I'm very happy with it, although I'm still learning things about it. Most of my photography is automotive-oriented and I suppose I'm in a rut of sorts. I'm in the habit of trying to take 1 or 2 shots of a particular vehicle to provide a visual description rather than present an "art shot."

    This page has an example of my current type of shots.
    http://www.chevyasylum.com/racing07/...118r8_jpg.html

    I'm just a dabbler at this, but I seem to enjoy it..so I do it.
