As proxy for Macfred, here is the theme for the August competition :

Street culture

Show photographs of :

- street markets
- children's street culture
- street carnival
- Cafe (Coffee) culture
- street art
- street dance / hip-hop culture
- street sports (street ball; skateboarding; Parkour; …)
- ...

The rules are simple:
- you must be the photographer
- one entry per month
- try making it an recent image

Voting:
- vote for your top 3 (don't vote for yourself)

The winner picks up the theme for the October competition.

Good topic ... now that I've found the thread.

I'm kind of spoiled for choice on this one. I'll have to decide what I want to post!

I'm back again - thank you, WhyFi for starting the August Photo Thread !!

--
I'll try a photograph of a project entitled Dispatchwork by German artist Jan Voormann.
This project has so far encompassed a slew of major cities on 4 continents, seeks to add a flash of color to dull, neglected patches of walls and buildings, while, in the process, encouraging others to follow suit with their own LEGO contributions.

NICE!!! A few years ago I saw a wall in paris done by him. learning they were held securely in place with just pressure points around the outline made it even more interesting.
thanks for the subject for this month!!!!!!!!

I took the family to Boston last weekend for Walker Stalker Con, and finally had an opportunity to snap a few pictures of stuff that might qualify as "street culture." Because, where we live in NH, there's really nothing that even comes close... I actually was contemplating submitting a picture of a corn field or a pine forest, stating "here's our local street culture."

Anyway, this is my submission:
