April Photo Contest

Thanks for the reminder Clemsongirl - I guess we needn't wait until the March contest is resolved.

For April, I've decided to go with the subject of infrastructure - the energy, transportation, garbage, water and communications corridors and facilities that underlie our day to day lives. Thought that might be enough to lift us out of our comfort zones while giving us lots of photo opportunities.

The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.

Voting:
- Vote for your top 3
- No voting for yourself

And if you are the winner one month ... you're in charge the month after the next. For example ... if you win in January, you're in charge of March. If you win in April, you're in charge of June.
You pick the theme, you count the votes, you announce the new winner.

Reminder bump.

We're all surrounded by infrastructure ... for me, it's just a matter of choosing a photo or choosing what to photograph.

A piece of cast iron 6" water pipe we pulled out the other day on a job. It was still in use.

Let's give everyone one more day (it's a short month!) - hopefully we will get one or two more images then we'll start the voting.
