The column in the background with all the entangled bodies is one single piece of rock, I think it took him seven years or so to finish." Thank you for posting this in our thread of statues from your travels.

This is just the perfect shot! Oh what I would give to have a massive bag to help myself to a bit of everything! The colours of the sweets go so well together. Wonderful!

This photo really caught my eye, the sunset is perfect and the composition with 'eeyore's house' in front of it is wonderful. Lovely title too!

I find this strange, little picture adorable! So many textures, so many details - so very "darwinistic"- as (I'm sure) we all have learned to know and love :-)
Take a moment to view all his 12 pictures in this slideshow!

This photo has really stood out from the Showcase for me, I love the lighting and the rainbow reflections. The title makes the photo complete. Well done Allison!

What a beautiful portrait of your girls this is! I love how their faces fill the frame, and as you say in the text " A mother is a complete woman!"
Wonderful photo Dimitris and thanks for sharing your lovely wife and daughters with us in our theme!
Here is what Tomeq wrote in accompaniment to this wonderful photo of his lovely mother.
"Ok. This is my mum.
Born in 1944 in a resettlement camp when the people living in the eastern part of Poland (later appended to USSR) were being transported to the western part of Poland.
Her mother was a cleaner, raising 5 children on her own... I can't even begin to imagine how it was... Anyway, my mum turned out tough as nails but lovely all the way... (which I believe I managed to capture here :D :D :D)"
Thanks for sharing her with us Tomeq, you have captured her beautifully.

With this nostalgic, beautiful transformation, borealnz won both your hearts and the challenge. The composition is so elegant, every detail so amazingly well done - and with this victory, I guess all the time I know she's spent P.S.'ing finally payed off! Well done! Congratulations!!!

Such an adorable way to put kktp_'s plane in a new setting! It certainly looks like it belongs in the toddlers hand :-)

This is bettermo's way of depicting "comfort zone" - and I believe her! the expression, the centered composition, the calmness, the light - it's all so soothing and relaxing.
bettermo has, time and time again impressed us all with her sure feeling of style in the way she works with her pictures. I'm sure you'll see what I mean when you take a look at the slideshow, showing the rest of her pictures for this weeks hunt.

This was such a hard list, but medieval panda managed to capture all the twelve words on the list. This is her picture of "chalk". I love the composition of this picture, and the dof is excellent!
Make sure you also take a look at the slideshow where you can see the rest of her wonderful entries!

the slideshow of his set for more gorgeous shots from that trip.
At first sight, I thought this was an old shipwreck on the beach from Mona T. Brooks. But look really close in the upper left corner, and you will see an old light fixture, left over from a flooded beach community! Seen in the Creative Challenge Decay in Black and White!

This was the one photo that stopped me in my tracks in the theme, so beautifully captured and its title fits it perfectly.
Fabulous work Joto25 and thanks for sharing it with us!!!
The feeling of despair and loneliness you get from this photo is amazing, what an wonderful work of art this is and I feel it illustrated the feeling of darkness perfectly
