FEBRUARY PHOTO CONTEST Preliminary Threads posted in GD

Egads! I have just been caught in a server error snafu as I was posting the threads. It kept telling me to retry posting #3, so I did, and it turned out it actually WAS posting, but returning a message to me that it hadn't. I think it is now fixed--the multiple posts of #3 removed--and all the threads are active. I hope.

Anyway, here are the links

Preliminary thread 1 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100218696212
Preliminary thread 2 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100218696214
Preliminary thread 3 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100218696216

We have a wonderful array of photos depicting many forms of love in the contest. Thank you to all the photographers who entered!

Please keep the threads kicked!
