#462 - "raining" cats and dogs
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 06-26-2019, 04:05 AM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #462 - “raining” cats and dogs

My thanks go to kerrowdown for the hosting of last weeks challenge and also for picking me as the winner.

This week I wanted to follow up to last weeks challenge, but only in the loosest way possible . We (my wife and I) used to have a reasonable number of animals running around the house (or rather inside the house). In peaktimes we had 21 Maine Coons (we used to have a Cattery which is actually also my username), 2 Weimaraners, 1 Australian Sheppard and 1 old fashioned scottish lines Labrador (I do not really like the modern skinny day Lab’s). Nowadays I only have 4 Coons left and therefore let it rain cats and dogs.

Here's a few of examples to get you all started.

The Challenge will run from now until midnight Tuesday 2nd July 2019, I'll judge and post results the following day. Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Please enjoy this weeks challenge, photography is supposed to be fun... right.

1. Post ONE photo.
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 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.

Murphy just appeared one day. It was obvious he had been someone's pet. He was not chipped and although I searched for his owner, I was never able to find him or her. So, he was here to stay.
