admin

red? RED? oh, yeah, R-E-D
admin
Red? Ahh, yes, Red. Honestly, I am probably not even going to do this challenge because I am so focused on, you know, RED. Well, unless someone photographs me raking leaves today. Heh, yep, you all are going to get a photograph of me raking leaves. I bet you can't wait. ;-)

Shana, find a squirrel burying acorns, a tree changing color, new boots or jacket (your kids have out grown last year's, I'm sure), geese flying south, all that blaze orange coming out, its all getting ready for the inevitable. Of course I don't have anything yet. I like the canning pictures, I hadn't thought of that.
admin
Well, I have taken about 203840923403 pictures of trees changing color, so that I can post. ;-)

Wait. Christmas lights? I know that you like Christmas and all, but dude, it's October.
admin
DUDE I'M already listening to Christmas Music.. Go to www.moeview.com and click on the MOERADIO link ant the top! I Roll like that!
admin
No.way. Christmas music before December 1st makes me puke.

Okay, enough Christmas talk. I am feeling an aneurysm coming on at the thought of it.
admin
OK. Autumn leaves. A surprising entry from me, I know. It isn't like I took a bazillion leaf shots in the last month or anything.

Leaves on White
admin
Can I post two leaf shots? I think that this has sort of a "winter" feel to it, just without snow.

I edited my photos because I realized the cilantro photo was taken before the challenge was issued so it doesn't qualify. :(

Shawn, your pictures were fine as both were taken on Sept. 29th, and they just needed to be taken between the last meeting and tonight's meeting. The last meeting was on Sept. 26th.

Oh, I will re-add them LOL. thanks

Ballots are printed...

not sure why but tags seem unreliable, I recall last month one of Brian's photos didn't show up when Rich printed thumbnails from tags, this month Mrs HBR's photo doesn't show up if you click on the DPG200710 tag link(even though I checked and the photo is tagged correctly), never fear the image is on the ballot, we just need to make sure her photo is shown at full size if it doesn't show up in the slide-show this evening (I also saw that there are a few extra images tagged with the same tag that are not in the thread, I did not put them on the ballot as part of the rules is to post them here).

Super, I'll start a new thread if it is ok with you? Anything you want to change about the rules? In fact... hummm executive decision time, Winners of the monthly contest, if they are present at the meeting get bumped to admin status.... So if you feel like editing the rules for next month feel free to do so.
