For the moment, I'll submit this photo.

It seems like the road is beautifully empty ...

Seems like the sculpture of a horse jumping but it’s a kite.

It looks like a rather boring pile of rocks




but it's what you'd see if you walked under the overhang at the base of these falls

A tree I photographed at work today. Doesn't seem to big but if someone was standing in the hole of the tree on the left side the opening would be twice as high and the whole trunk is hollow from fires

if you think it’s anything other than Albert Szukalski's interpretation of Da Vinci’s Last Supper in Rhyolite, Nevada....you’re wrong

...nor here - or any water for your fire truck. You might eventually see Frank & Mike though



This was a tough subject month, closest thing I could come up with is this photo of the leaning tower of Topsail Beach that may not actually be bending in the wind

I thought I'd see a lot more abstract images. I also didn't expect stories to explain them either.

Yours is certainly an example of that - cool photo, I'll add a soundtrack

No problems, maybe we'll get a few more photos in under the wire. Sometimes a challenge is good.

you left out "objects" or is it - I see what you did there

I think we all had a bit of trouble with this one. I suppose with a bit more imagination I could have done a good macro shot. Mine is a sort of example of how backlighting isn't always a good thing, but on a guided trip you do the best you can.

Hmmm. Not sure if I am the one who is supposed to tally votes or not.
By total votes:
deal: 4
nb: 3
cg: 3
nond: 3

Or if the votes are in ranked order: (votes x place):
nb: 3x1
deal: 1x1, 2x2, 1x3
cg: 3x2
nond: 1x2, 2x3

Need some more votes.
