Hoping to participate myself but my desktop with PP programs is down with a bad boot sector. Hope to get it back up soon enough to throw one out there.

This is annabanana's first time entering - and she was the first to enter!

Looking forward to your entry, so I hope you get everything back up soon too.

I'm really liking Tragedy Strikes and Eyewitness - good details and great color balance.

14. Hey, kids!

Lookin' good so far! I personally love the sad tale of the lost ice cream. Tragic, indeed!

Will someone who knows more about photo dimensions look at my submission and tell me if it's too big? I think it's okay but photobucket is doing this new layout and some of their pages are buggy for me. Not sure if what it says it is is what it is! Thanks!

30. Solly, I hope you don't mind that I went back into my archives

for my shot. I just couldn't find anything interesting enough in my travels, other than the tampon (which I would die before I would post in a contest) and some lost gloves. My photo is from the Gulf Coast a year and a half after Katrina.

39. HA! :)

Good photo Blue! Mine is actually from my archive as well, when I was in Alaska a few years ago! That's kind of ironic, mine from there and your's from down here.

Solly...there's is still a lot left to do on the Gulf Coast even after all these years! Katrina was devastating.

41. RichardD!

I almost posted similar old car photos from Santa Fe!



At first I thought it was the same car, but yours is leaning up against barbed wire so I guess not. Still, same color and similarly graffitied

42. It's the same one!!

Looks like the fence was moved or put in after you took that. Too funny.
What's really funny is that I almost entered this view instead.
Good eye, intheflow!

43. That has got to be the same car..

That's wild!

edited to add: Yes it is the same one! See the rock in front of the left front tire in both shots as well.
That is just such an amazing coincidence! Really cool!

That's a nice little park. My dog and I had a wonderful time romping through there. I can see why they'd have added the wire, though. I'll bet kids were climbing all over those vehicles and the city feared a law suit.

I have a lot of junk around here, but to imagine someone else is eying up my hometown trash is unbelievable.

Nice image, BTW.
