Thank you to everyone who voted for my photograph in the Transport challenge.

The sunny days are here and for the June challenge I have chosen FESTIVALS as the theme. Music festivals, Food festivals, Art festivals all kinds of festivals. The atmosphere and people enjoying them.

The only thing I would not like to see are close ups on musicians.

Please submit up to three images from your Alamy collection.

The contest will finish at midnight 30th Jun

 

A few examples:

Good luck.

A great choice of subject even if it's one for which I don't have many good pictures to submit. So I look forward to seeing other peoples' pictures.

What I do have though:

Congratulations on winning last time. I don't think I have anything that fits this month! I've still never won the competition and am rarely selected as a finalist. Looks like this month I'll have no hope as I have nothing to offer. Good luck to everyone else.

Geoff.

You're in Brighton aren't you? If so, there's the Takepart festival starts middle of June...

Are you sure this is a real festival and not just some kid who doesn't like cats but likes dressing up?  :lol:

I remember that guy from last year - a really good singer!  I'm looking forward to checking out Italian day again this year. 

 

Great topic Shpg, there are so many festivals this time of year.

Mine are from Western Days in Lakeside, California. It is on the rodeo circuit and once a year at rodeo time there is a parade that was originally started by my father in the days when the town was really western and it was common to see a kid riding bareback down the street. There were two wonderful saddle, tack and clothing stores but it's all gone suburban and now you have to take a freeway to the Boot Barn in a shopping mall. Sigh. I wish I had one that shows more of the parade. It only had about five sections the first time but became a seemingly endless procession of kids, horses, cowboys, fire engines, etc. etc. But it looks like I tend to just take photos of individuals.
