    Would you believe it's a ghost climbing a tree?? ;) :D

    Definitely more interesting than the others. I think I would crop it to the mouth only because her eyes compete with the lego figure.

    And now for something completely different:

    OK, full disclosure: there was a vent in the ground near the tree, and steam was coming out of it.

    Are there any rules to these threads?

    Phrasikleia: A vent is the last thing I would've thought that was, given that it's next to a tree.

    I think the only rule in this thread is "one per day." (Aside from general MR site rules, of course.)

    Yeah, I was pretty surprised to find the vent. I've passed through that grove of redwood trees many times and had never noticed it before. It looked completely surreal, so I plopped down the tripod and went at it.

    Cool, well in that case, here's one I did yesterday.

    A photo of MY camera, taken with my dad's Lumix DMC FZ18. I was trying to weight the picture to the left to make it feel like the right hand side was drawing the viewer in. I don't know if I was successful but I like it anyway :)

    The bokeh's always greener on the other side.

    Just a fun shot, not attempting for any deep or emotional captures :)

    Here's a photo of my awesomely cute dog.

    She had just had a haircut, which usually makes her look like a little lamb, but she looked a lot better then usual after this trim.

    Nicely done for an aquarium shot. I like you choice of photo filters... it really suits the jellyfish.

    Hello everybody,

    Here's my shot for this month! A Black Mangabey seen at the Zoological Garden of Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Africa).

    What do you think? :)

    Nope. But I'm betting this guy would have done a much better job...

    I bet that guy is even reading Wordsworth !

    Brilliant work Martin, almost abstract looking.

    Beautifully well shot panorama.

    A slightly gloomy looking shot for the start of this month !
    I would like to say that this shot was preplanned, that I had wanted to demonstrate the contrasts in the way's we celebrate Life, Death, Birth, and also if your that way inclined Spiritual Rebirth. In reality I was killing time in Glasgow so I walked to the top of the Necropolis looked out over the Cathedral and the Royal Infirmary, seen the moody sky and thought "Hmm could be a nice shot" and clicked ;)

    I love these picture of the day threads here, although every month I start out by saying " I'm going to post a picture a day in the picture a day thread" then life intervenes and I'm not on for a fortnight :(

    From Shanghai, China. This is a very from a largish park in the middle of the city surrounded by many buildings. It is very rare to see the blue sky in Shanghai for those that take blue skies for granted
