Chat thread for weekly competition: Love
« on: May 06, 2012, 10:32:32 AM »
A lot of photos at the moment are rain dominated, but even if you wouldn't think it, it is spring. So, my thoughts duly turned to love. (At least, I read recently that thoughts 'automatically' turn to love in spring.)
So this week's brief is 'Love.'  Interpret it as widely as you wish, including lust if you wish to photograph the 'rape on the duckpond.'


Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 7th of May 2012 to 23:59 Sunday 13th May 2012 .
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 14th May 2012.
Poll will be up Tuesday 15th May 2012. (I hope!)
Winner to be announced Saturday 19th May 2012.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...
By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

Photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie Monday xx to Sunday xx

Hmmm   I thought I entered a comment here, after I uploaded my entry. Must have forgotten to press the 'post' button. That's age for you, I suppose.

Any way, I went to town on Tuesday, looking for love. Yeah, I know,  a risky business, but the things you do for love ... photography, I mean.

I wasn't sure what I hoped to find, till I saw these two. It was love at first sight: I was totally bowled over by the interaction of these two beings!

I'm in with this:

I may not get enough time this week, as the glorious sunny weather dictates to get building work finished and a window fitted well before the rain sets in again. To shattered tonight, and I just hope I have not over done it today as I need a steady hand for tomorrows toil :-\

You disappoint me H! Couldn't you have done a selfie of you and your mower, along the lines of 'no love lost' or whatever the expression is?
Or if you have a special relationship with your mower or gardening, something about eternal love?

Haven't seen your entry yet, maybe it's not so lame as you think.

Edit. Just saw your entry and it is not as lame, as I expected it to be! Red roses and love go together as ... You can fill that in yourself, as my mind's suddenly  gone blank.
