March 2019 Challenge.... EATING

Recommended Posts

As I thought about this I kept coming up with topics that would bring up images similar to the ones we just did. I think I have finally found one that will take us in a different direction.... It is "Eating". My examples, of course, will be animals but I welcome all --- insects, denizens of the deep, human people and even MONSTERS.

 

 Three entries per person

 Your own images of course

 The images must be on Alamy

 The winner does the next challenge

 

The deadline is midnight GMT on March 31.

I look forward to your entries. A lot of us do LOVE EATING.

Congratulations, Paulette!

Some great images on here already.

 

Can I make a suggestion that we add another rule?

 

Competitors are not allowed to vote for their own images.

 

What do others think?

Oh, Allan. I was chided for that years ago. You have to understand that we primitive Americans watch our politicians voting for themselves at every election. So I no longer vote for myself but maybe some do. I saw it as a kind of pride in my work but I have learned that you lovely, polite English folk frown on it. It would not be enforceable anyway.

Of course you vote for yourself if you're standing for elective office- I certainly did, I needed the votes!- but I wouldn't dream of doing it otherwise. I'm sure no-one here would.

Love that baby elephant photo - lucky we don't have to compete with that! Some great stuff so far. I'll have to search my archives and see if anything pops up - I love that these challenges get me to take a look at what I have and encourage me to get them online. 

 

I learned long ago that it was unBritish to vote for oneself, after I initially did so once long ago when I had a photo in the running, assuming that of course everyone would vote for their photo since there was no rule saying those with photos in the running could not vote...until I saw a discussion on the subject and switched my vote to the competition. As an American, voting against myself wasn't easy, and my inclination would be to abstain altogether, but as this is a British agency, when in Rome...the couple of times since then I've had a photo in the running, I've done the "done" thing and voted for someone else. But, it doesn't come naturally.
