Posted By: Woolly, 01-17-2012, 02:11 PM

In this challenge lets see the world from the perspective of someone who's lifestyle is completely opposite from yours.

-Jeff

This competition is open from now until midnight EST on Friday, January 24, 2012.


Have fun!


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 (or Samsung DSLR) camera will do.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

I did notice that I mistakenly put Friday the 24th for the end. This challenge will end tomorrow Tuesday January 24th.

Ok, I'll enter just for the fun of it. This would be the opposite of me. I'm pretty conservative, and would rather be seen dead than in head gear like this. I'll never ride bike ( the last time I was on a motorbike was 28 yeas ago, as a passenger and I 'm sure that's where my ulcer came from ). With all due respect to bikers, they are simply dangerous-I'm also in the medical business and at one stage we had an amputation a day (arm or leg) just from motorbike accidents. Now that is not rational, logical, camera obssessive me

Off to Market



It's hard for me to imagine doing something like this. I'mean, who ties up a goat on the left hand side of their bicycle?!? I'mean really!

I must say that the right of the bike is a much better place for a goat.....
