Ech..spending hours in the rain, futilely trying to get a "human interest" shot during the annual Chinese New years parade - celebrating the advent of The Year of The Rat - near Shanghai Alley in Vancouver, I ended up with..well..photographic detritus!
And you guys are not helping either, submitting such great shots!!!! The level is really, really high this time - time is running out - and all we get around here is rain and gunmetal gray skies!!!
All I need is for Gordon to announce - as a special surprise - that next months' theme will be astro photography, after admiring cybermystics' images and getting nearly teary eyed at their celestial beauty.
So, patti, you're not alone..lol.
Anyway, besides hopefully amusing everyone with my laments, I just want to say that I am really impressed with all the submissions for this months' theme. I'm no expert, but I know what I like and you guys' stuff is good!
Whether I succeed or not in getting a good shot is beside the point - your examples propel me to greater efforts
