Hmm....this looks like a good assignment this month, hopefully when I go on holiday to York (Leave Fri 18th Return Mon 28th) I will get all creative, i'm really looking forward to seeing all the submissions.

--EDIT--

Having seen several people with images they would like to have entered but they were taken outside the timeframe, maybe we could create a thread for such photos.

Just a thought

beren...

bless us and splash us, Gollum is a pathetic little thing...I think most of us here share a love of Hobbit...more often then not, folks allude to the elves, Lothlorien, and sometimes the photos here, just set the tone...for that...

my favorite is Legolas. and Laurelin, the golden tree...then, Boromir.
Samwise, and Bill the good pony.
ah. I think I need a summer re-read.
just for fun. That or Patti Boyds book, about her life with George Harrison, and Eric Clapton...yeah, it is gonna be a no-brainer summer.
As Mr. Clapton says..."promises, promises..."

Thanks Bjorn :)

I love the two photos of yours too. Actually I like the second one even better, but it's only a matter of taste I guess. The frames look great with both photos.

I think every submitted photo is thoughtful. The more I look at some, the more I like them. Great topic, and I'm excited to see some more images soon.

Good luck everyone!

LOL I think naniani would win "best description" of their photo if there was such a category. I like the image too :)

yep yep, Baby, I have a few good dogs, and a few good dog photos, too...but I would love if you won, because I know I would be able to compete...and BOB has dogs, like nobody else, if you go to the pets thread, some of them are there...and he shows em, too...mine are only mutts, and some border collies..working dogs. But, a good friend just got a boxer pup, and is he ever cute...I will keep my fingers crossed that we get to have an On Assignment Dog month...

Cheers Roy! Yeah I really like my shelves too. A friend's brother-in-law is a carpenter and he did all the woodwork in my place and did a great job. They actually extend further right, but with wood behind instead of glass. I cropped the pic to just keep the glass though. I thought for "minimalism", having 2 different backgrounds might be a bit busy!

Hi Mark,

Nice one. Love the perspective on the shelves from your chosen viewpoint.

Bob.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your feedback, I'm glad you like it. The first time I shot it, I had the tripod down too low and ended up shooting slightly upwards so I ended up with a strange perspective, so the 2nd time I shot it, I used live-view and found it much easier to position the image to how I wanted it to look.

That's a great shot Heavywinds! Hilarious add-on of the acrobat kitty cat menacing the unsuspecting birdies... reminds of my childhood and those good old looney tunes cartoons! hahaha! :lol:
