Hello everyone, welcome to April's Assignment!
The theme for this month is suggested by zrmi, who won the February 2008 competition. In zrmi's own words:
"the theme is 'transportation'..it is up to you interpret the theme..it can be a car, bus, ship, or even a horse..good luck!!"

As always, please exercise good judgement on what is suitable for the forum.
Please include a sentence or two with your photo describing what you were trying to achieve and if there were any particular challenges in doing so.
