Foo Foto Contest--November - VOTE NOW!

It is All Saints Day. Time to start the November Contest.

DancesWithGolf picked the theme this month, "Converging Lines."

Good luck everyone, let's see what y'all can conjure.

Theme: Converging Lines

Rules: You must be the photographer, one entry a month, and try to make the image a recent one.

The winner gets bragging rights and picks January's theme.
