Challenge #137 - Habit

Everyone has habits. Show me a habit. It can be yours or someone (or something) else's. Habit's can be good/bad/indifferent/annoying or whatever. Use your imagination and I'll do my best to jugde your shots.

Good luck to all!
- Oula

Challenge Starts: NOW

Challenge Ends: Saturday, June 19th @ 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.

Good one, Rense. I liked that pic the first time I saw it. I like the highlights and backlighting.

Here's mine. Not a habit for me, though I do sometimes enjoy a wee dram of malt on a cool evening, but it can be a burdensome habit for some.

Whether its beer cans, fast food wrappers or other debris, why do people have the habit of throwing their junk out their car windows, as if it did not matter one bit?

sleeping late

Ever notice how some have a habit of sleeping late, like they don't have a care in the world?

My morning dose of news over breakfast is my habit, and if I don't get it, then I have a bad start to the day

Checking Facebook...

I am not a Facebook user but my 17 year-old daughter certainly is! Here she is, in her room, shortly after getting home from work tonight, catching up with her world.

I decided to go abstract and dark on this one.
Some habits are hard to break, even if you want to.

Betel Nut Chewer

Betel Nut chewing in Taiwan is the local equivalent of chewing tobacco. The juice is blood red and stains the chewers teeth and chewing causes an irritation and over-stimulation of the mouth muscles often leading to cancer. Habitual chewers can easily average US$10 or more a day which can easily by 3 meals here.

Some folk seem to have a permanent need to have their mobile phones up their noses. Taken in fuzzivision.
