Thank you for the above comments. I wish that I could take a little more credit for them but these were taken with my anti grovel device which gives a shoe toecap view.

As for embedding, there's a sticky at the top of the forum. With photobucket just copy the img code and paste into your thread. With flickr, click on the share this tab and select bb code. Again just copy and paste. As far as I am aware the photography section only allows this, all other sub forums require the http link
