Challange #136 - In and around the Kitchen
Posted By: Oldschool, 06-05-2010, 12:08 PM

Some of my favorite memories revolve around the family kitchen. My Mom calls our family 'kitchen people'.

I'd like to see everyone use their imagination and post something around the topic 'In and around the kitchen'. It could be a family gathering, kitchen utensils, or your favorite chef in his kitchen.

I'll post a couple of examples in the next post.

I don't consider myself a good photographer, but I'll do my best in the judging.

Good luck.......................Paul

Challenge Starts: NOW

Challenge Ends: Saturday, June 12th @ 12-noon server time.

The fine print....
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread, and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera will do or a Samsung DSLR.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.

Very nice, Peter.
This one is after a good meal and doing the dishes.
It reminded me of a prison break or some show: when kitchen utensils revolt.
