Challenge #377-What are you proud of?
Posted By: charliezap, 01-14-2017, 08:06 AM

We all take pride in something.Maybe it's your country-people we know-iconic landmarks-family-or maybe something you built. The possibilities are endless so enter a shot that instills and evokes a spirit of pride that you can share with others.I'll be very interested in seeing the submissions and I'll be looking for that shot that fits the theme along with a "WOW" factor that will help me make up my mind as to who the top spot goes to.----charliezap

The challenge will close on midnight my time on Sunday January 22nd 2017.

I hope that I covered all the bases so get working and most of all have fun with this challenge.

The Rules:

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 one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Ricoh DSLR ) camera can be used.
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, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

There are many people and things I'm proud of, some of them intangible or difficult to photograph (how to depict nearly 1000 published articles and a serial novel?), but it's not hard to say that I'm quite proud to be willing and able with...

Sticking to Cycling Through Winter Snow and Ice Studded snow tires help a lot!

My son. Not only for skiing, but also for skiing.
Most importantly he is a clever, compassionate, gentle, and generous soul.

There's a plethora of things, places and Beings I am proud of! But, for now I will let a recent photo speak for me. I am soooooo proud of (and thankful for) this Canadian Wilderness I call home.

My Rescue Dog, Addy

I'm proud of my little dog who had a very rough start in life. She's still scared of a lot of things but is a great addition to our family and loves hikes and going to the beach.
