January challenge 2017 - Friendship and friends

Recommended Posts

Thank you to Paulette for setting last months challenge. It was a major surprise to win and to be able to choose this months subject.
I wanted to choose a positive subject for the first challenge of the New year so I have chosen "Friendship and friends" as the subject. 

As usual it's a maximum of three images per participant and all images must be on Alamy. The challenge will close at midnight on the 31st January after which I will choose eight images and open the voting (If I can work out how to do that :) 

You can interpret the subject as you wish.

 

It could be the friendship between mother and daughter

Or making new friends (even if they are not human)

a-reindeer-making-friends-with-a-young-g

 

Or even Friends that provide support

portsmouth-uk-14th-june-2015-a-competito

 

Good luck
