Ok tried, that it's just bringing up a wee ? Graphic. There's also a HTML and bb code would they work?
and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered and each time that he slew Hurin cried 'Aure entuluva! Day shall come again!' Seventy times he uttered that cry; but they took him at last alive...

That's all it brings up..I'm using my iPad for uploading and taking the photos could that be the problem?

Here's a link to the photo,

Is this it? ;)
If you right click on the image and go to "View Image Info" you can copy the image "location."
The location for your photo is this: http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6102/6358 ... 2f3565.jpg ...which you copy in between the two image brackets.

Edit:
PS- Nice looking dwarves.

I built a small "set" to take pictures. Still need to work on the lighting a little, but it works.

Details and picture of the set on my blog:

I put my models on a clear table and take a few steps back. I like to take side on pics or front pics, as usually that's where the best painting is. I zoom in a bit, just to capture a good point, usually the face. I take a few pics, review and turn my model slightly.
We cite Om-nom-iticus 13:2, whch states that "thou pootis with pootis pootis pootis, despite sandvich pootis while the pootis of pootis pootis is pootis".
May your mittens never chill, and your bread never stale.
