Being that today is the last day of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Death), I've decided to do something different and unusual. Día de los Muertos is celebrated from Oct 31st-Nov 2nd. This time is is used to celebrate the dead, like our loves ones that have passed.

Ideas: Dead flowers, cars, buildings etc.. user your imagination.

I hope this post isn't offensive to anyone, it is not my intention at all.

Info for Día de los Muertos, Source Wikipedia:
The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Normal rules apply:
  • The photographs must be of your own creation.
  • Explore, get creative and have fun with it.
  • You may only submit one photo per weekly contest round.
  • Please do not comment on any 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 they possibly can.
  • 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).
  • Winners please update the Weekly Photo Contest Master thread

As a starter to get the creative juices flowing:

Sorry for some reason I thought this was the POTD thread. Never mind. Obviously I was too tired to be posting. Carry on. o_O
I reckon the busyness of life as a modern Mum would be tiring & relentless! I suspected as much, @mollyc . Here's to hoping today has less going on for you.
As a dad, I knew exactly what happened. I consider it a good day when I get everyone’s name right on the first try. :confused:
