April Photo Contest: In Your Home

cuda2K won February's photo contest, but we have not been able to contact him, so I'll get April's photo contest going. Hmmm ... let me think ... OK, let's go with "In Your Home".



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.

**These are example photos, not for the contest**

You could go with a real estate or home & garden magazine type of photo ...





Or perhaps go simple and photograph one object ...

OK ... it's been a very busy month and I haven't had time to experiment with photos so I'll put this one in.

I will let this contest run until the end of the first week of May before it goes to a vote because it got started so late. That might give a few more people time to get a photo in.

So no voting here until Monday 9 May.




However, May's contest can go ahead and start on May 1.

I'm expanding the definition 'home' to include a habitable structure, this one being a parking garage I'm in quite regularly:



I like the straight 90 degree angles, the simplicity (just lots of concrete), and the light. I DID modify it by taking out the over-abundant directional, speed limit, and safety signs to keep with a minimalistic theme.

Still a few more photo taking days left on this April Contest.


BTW - @clemsongirl is hosting the May contest here: http://www.bikeforums.net/foo/106166...to-thread.html ... so you can get started with that one too.
