Re: Voting Thread for May 2007 Photo Assignment

Eenie Meenie Minee Mo, catch a tiger by the...

I might just as well draw straws or use the above.

I like the clouds. They are just a bit dark on my monitor; but what they hey. I do like the picture.

ScubaMargie's tongue-in-cheek childhood rhyme gave me a chuckle and brought back memories of jokes about long-winded prayer givers and cold food.

My picture wasn't what I wanted but fits the theme. I actually wanted to go to a dance class or martial arts class and shoot students. I didn't make it.

Therefore, all choosing aside. ScubaMargie is the only one of us that hasn't had a turn picking a topic yet. My vote goes to ScubaMargie. That's it. No second, and no third.

Re: Voting Thread for May 2007 Photo Assignment

I really like both the other photos entered into this assignment.

Can I give you both 1.5? I can't decide.

Here goes...
I give both Mystical One and Janet Petty equal first. I am not one to vote for my own image as I think that is wrong.

Thank you both for your votes and now I will go and think up a theme.

No offense intended. There was no specification made with the theme "Grace". I assumed that each individual would post his/her individual ideas. That is what I did. Purely personal, just like everyone else is entitled to his/her own preferences.
