    I got into photography because I became a mom and wanted to preserve our lives. This has led me also into the rabbit hole of scrapbooking. Because of this, I often try to take photos that can tell a story without words. So my challenge for everyone this week, is just that - show me a story in a single frame.

    Here are a couple of examples from my own work.

    ____________________
    The rules are still the same.

    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 one week, starting 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).

    A walk in the woods. See if anyone spots the quintessentially Scottish item in the picture.

    Irn Bru is a wonderful drink and I look forward to it when ever I come over. Better than Coke or Pepsi, that's for sure. lol. It gives you the energy to do things like this:

    This young man was injured in a game his team was losing. He was back on the field the following week.

    I had walked past this restaurant earlier and it was pretty lively and then not even a half hour later you had this lonely scene of the couple not saying anything.

    Can you post the actual photo in the thread, not a link to it?

    This challenge is now closed. I have to go run errands with my kiddos, but I will be back this afternoon with critiques and winners! Great photos everyone. :)
