I'm unhappy that my Mum doesn't wear dentures, could have had some fun there! Haha. However, I do have an early idea.

Oh dear, great topic, but this will be interesting. I'm thinking of Kitty yawning, skulls, dentures... What I would really like is a 'character' with very bad teeth to smile at my camera! Can anyone help?

That was my first idea, I've now gone one further. Will probably not be a very exciting shot, so I will try to 'think on.'

A vamp should not be that difficult.

Having failed to get an entry in last weekend and with rain scotching my plans to visit a wedding venue thought I`d play around with what was in the cupboard and came up with

This was my idea, didn't turn out quite what I'd planned but it's my entry. Sadly it makes my 14 year old girl look quite vicious

OK. Here's my entry, simply named 'Cogs", though I am married to a cyclist, I just can't remember what this part is called, but i do know it's part of his groupset....I thought the layers of cogs with teeth would look great as a macro, converted to B&W.

yes, 'groupset' - that was the term i was after. 'Block' is a term from the generation of Eddie Merckz  :-X

It's a rear cassette to be more precise :legit:

Definition of cassette: 1. small case or cartridge, 2. a lightweight case or cartridge containing an interchangeable medium. It's not a cassette because it is not a container.

You MAMILs are so pretentious, you're getting to be like yachties - it's a secondary gear cluster. If you call it what it is even normal people will know what you mean.  :knuppel2:

When I used to sail my friends and I made a point of avoiding nautical terms. So 'mooring rope' became 'parking string', the 'genoa' became 'the front sheet', the 'mainsail' the 'big sheet', the 'mainsheet' (which is actually a rope) became the 'big string', the 'cockpit' was the 'patio', the 'saloon' the 'lounge', the 'cabins' 'bedrooms', the 'bow' was called the 'pointy end', the 'main hatch' the 'front door'. A much more inclusive and descriptive set of terms  :D Mooring, or parking as we called it, was always hilarious for the reactions of the sailing cognoscenti.

Well, it used to cheer us up in force 8. And in bars when the other 'serious' yachties would look at us like we were from another planet :2funny:

Hubby said its not a rear cassette, because theres not a front or middle one, so the rear isn't needed

OK, not only is it not a cassette, it's not a rear cassette either.  I stand corrected.  Now can somebody tell google (https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=rear+cassette&client=safari&rls=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=HWjxUtjNIcKohAeVnYGgAg&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAg&biw=1567&bih=822)?

Blimey, a bunch of cogs assembled into a block for use with a derailleur on a bike hasn't half distracted from the point in hand - the weekly competition.

If I win this week, next weeks theme will be Autistic Tendencies  :uglystupid2:

Ogga, you'll need to tell wikipedia too, 'cos they call it a cogset as well as cassette. Just that, no rear. I started riding bicycles a long time ago and in those days things were just called what they were. A good friend of mine who is in to modern cycling lore visited me last year and we simply could not understand what bits of the bicycle we were each referring to. Yes, cassette was the one that caused me the most confusion. I didn't understand why my bikes would have cassettes as none of them had stereos. The problem is the use of insider jargon, as I was attempting to humorously illustrate. Obviously an epic fail*.

*that means I'll get my coat . .  :uglystupid2:

Hey, we live to learn. Its not just photography we learn here.

. . . and now you know that the nautical term for rope is sheet. You couldn't make it up. But at least a winch is a winch.

I understand that a rear cassette is made up of a number of sprockets, these when put together form a cassette, I have put a picture into the gallery to show this.

Hope this helps, or hinders, depending on what your thoughts are. :2funny:

Post by: SimonW on February 05, 2014, 06:41:32 PM
As a cyclist I agree that seems to be the common understanding. But to satisfy an earlier comment here that a casette is a container (eg a tape casette) perhaps the word really should (or perhaps originally did) refer to the "drum or barrel" (my words) on which all the sprockets fit, making up a unit which can be removed as a whole. So this part, although inside all the sprockets, does in fact contain them, in the sense of holding them all together.

Isn't the English language wonderful?

Trawling the interwebs, I discovered the etymology of some of the current push bike patois:

That's excellent.

Though of course the D90 is the basic model - you could go for the SA90 upgrade for more demanding conditions  :legit:
