December Foo Photo Vote

It's the holiday season - like it or not.

Tsuru picked the theme this month, "Tacky Displays."

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 February's theme.

My coworker's cubicle display. Someone tried to draw a mustache for the little guy on the glass. I tried to align the mustache properly but alas it was a bit off

I call the photograph: "Chinese Hobbits".

Wow, I love this shot. Been staring at it for a while. The man is obviously homeless, or likely so, but you've managed to catch him in a very Regal pose. He reminds me of an old world European Santa Claus. I find this shot very fitting for December during the worst recession we've see in our time. Well done! Excellent shot.

Nah, that's Darrell's house. He's mah cousin, he's also a roadie, it figures.

(BTW, I must confess I am not the original photographer, but it was to tacky not to use as the bar. Beat that for tackiness.)

I like the added touch of the chickens and cow, with the flamingos in the background.

IMHO, the gorilla is tackier than the dog.
