Foo Foto Contest--June

April's winner was kaotikgrl.
To me her work shows a celebration of life.
So let's make that this month's theme.

Rules
You must be the photographer
Try to make the image a current one
One entry per month

Theme
Life, and however you wish to show its celebration

Good luck everyone
Here's to another month of beautiful images.

My entry.

The photo technically wasn't taken by me, but my g/f took it of me on top of Rattlesnake Ledge in WA.



If that disqualifies me, here's another actually taken by me in Brasilia

Very nice. While it's a great festival for Holland, it's definitely seen its better days.

I grew up in Holland moved to GR shortly after. I'm lovin Southwest, MI now. I'll be traveling to the Adirondacks in late July, just 5 hours from you

Cyclinfool rides the Adirondacks. He may be able to give some good tips for rides.

How about the top one will be entered as "malpag3's girlfriend" and the bottom one can be yours?
