Challenge #395-- "You should frame that"
Posted By: charliezap, 08-01-2017, 06:55 AM

Once again I am honored and humbled to be hosting the Weekly Challenge.
The hardest part about hosting to me is thinking of a new theme but I think that we can all have fun with this one.

We all take many pictures of different subjects and I bet that many of us have heard from others that "You Should Frame That".We all have shots that would look good on a wall in our homes-places where we work-gifts for others--etc. The subject can be of anything and enhancements (PP) will be allowed for your frameable entry.I think that I have all the bases covered for this challenge. If not I'll be happy to respond to your questions.--The Challenge will close on Tuesday August 8 at midnight my time.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

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/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, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Here are some examples to jump start your thinking.--charliezap

"that should be on a tablet" is the most modern iteration of "you should frame that"
So true and just too funny.

Hope I'm not too late. The only one I've thought about framing in along time among my many photos is the one below.

This one for several reasons, not least because it will ever remind me of the church where I am currently serving
