In the spirit of the The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational, take a photographic word, change it by one letter (either replacing a letter, adding one, or subtracting one) to form a new word with its own definition.

(Maybe you saw my Bill Jay quote on the DPI Facebook page.)

2 of my favorites from the Post's contest are:

Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

In thinking about Bill Jay's version of this, I came up with a couple:

Raperture: Capturing the end of the world with a large depth of field.

and

Shudder speed: The rate at which emotional angst rises upon seeing the grizzly suddenly charge. (This one may be bending the rules, but, hey, they were the same letter!)


Have any of your own???

It's not too terribly difficult. The key was that I had a few expired hard hats at work, which have to be thrown out anyway.
