July Challenge FUN

Recommended Posts

I don't think I need to give any special instructions for this one.... Just have fun (groan).

 

A limit of 3 of your Alamy images per contestant. The deadline will be July 31 at 10PM in New York City (which will be way late for most of you.) I will choose 8 finalists and set up the poll if I can remember how to do it.

 

My examples are, of course, animals but feel free to give your own interpretation to the topic.

I know. That is 4 from me. I couldn't resist. I hope you will enjoy this one.

Here are my 3 entries, all taken at Musilac summer festival in Aix-les-Bains (France)

2018 edition of the festival opens its gates tomorrow…

So, in a few hours I will be there to take a few more pictures of teenagers (not only ;)) having fun.

BTW, Paulette. This is off-topic, sorry. But your wonderful animal photos brought to mind a terrific book that I've been reading called The Inner Life of Animals by Peter Wohlleben. Can highly recommend (if you haven't already read it).

 

Back to fun...

Thank you for the book recommendation, John. It sure does sound right up my alley.

Paulette, we're on the same wavelength! Should I one day have to choose a theme (God forbid), that's what I had chosen! 

Here are my three.
