    I don’t have a pet, nor do I take many animal pictures. But I want to post something for this competition nonetheless.

    This dude looked proper grumpy but didn’t say no to posing for a portrait.

    Skitty-3-crop1 B&W.jpg It is interesting that the first posts are animals. Even though they have limited capacity for facial expression, they somehow let us know exactly what they are thinking.

    I was taking some pictures in the woods behind my house. My cat decided to come along to stand guard. She heard something rustling behind me and went on the prowl.

    (BTW: It is not true that she is our cat. We are her humans, but that is another story.)

    Ok I’ll be the first to post a human then.

    Mrs MacRy is a goldmine of crazy expressions whenever I pull the camera out......she’s the one on the right.

    So, is she more afraid of the dinosaur or the camera?

    This calls for the only animal portrait I’ve ever done.

    Slammed at work this week, so here is one from a while back. We got chatting to the girls at the next table and this girl told us it was her birthday. So a quiet word with the waiter and they brought out a Birthday treat.

    All good. There are actually 9 rules. Just copy & paste:

    · The photographs must be your own work.

    · Be creative and have fun.

    · You may only submit one photo per contest.

    · Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

    · The contest runs for a week and starts now!

    · At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

    · If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker.

    · The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    · Please update the Weekly Contest Master List when you post a new contest

    Who was she with? :p

    Hope you had a nice lunch. I'd have to ply Mrs AFB with alcohol for her to let me take her photo!
