December 2016 Challenge - Behind

Recommended Posts

At first I thought I would make this a point of view challenge with "rear view". Then I decided I wanted to open it up to more interpretations so I settled on "Behind". Let's see what you come up with. So the rules are 3 entries per person and the images should be yours (of course) and should be on Alamy. The competition closes at midnight GMT on December 31. That will be 7pm here in New York City so not after my bedtime. Here are some of mine...

Thanks for getting us started, Geoff. I was hoping we would get some people behind glass.

A Nepali porter hidden behind his huge load. When we were trekking there I stopped and asked a porter with a huge load of cans of soup how much his pack was. He said 100kg. A few days later we were talking to a lodge owner who had superb english and I said 'do these guys really carry 100kg?'. He started laughing and said 'oh no, no, these youngsters really like to impress the tourists. Those back packs are rarely more than 80kg.' Thats 176lbs. When it was time to move on I tried not to grunt and grimace too much as I bravely shouldered my 40lb pack.

 

Cheers

This sunset at Santa Monica beach was the most amazing experience.  Almost all activity stopped on the beach as this unfolded everyone was stunned by the beauty of it.  I had just talked to the young girl on the roller blades before taking this photo and realized when I got home to process the photos how appropriate her sweatshirt was.

My first challenge o' the month entry, ever. 

 

1 - Behind a fence with her ribbons behind her. A double whammy. And since they aren't blue ribbons, we can assume she finished behind someone else in the standings...but that's a reach.

Hmmm, you have no idea how much I've had to clean up my act to narrow it down to the following shots.

Anyway, congratulations on winning last months competition Paulette, a very well deserved winner!

Here are my three clean, decent and wholesome images for the "behind" theme, (having removed the frogs enjoying themselves from behind, and the bloke in the "mankini" at the boxing day swim here in Sidmouth ..... phew!)

Obviously, let's not forget that it is panto season in the UK. 

 

Oh no, it isn't.

Oh yes, it is. 

It's behind you.
