This could indeed give interesting entries.
Bit difficult for me since I rarely shoot people. :ugh:
I'll see if I can come up with something.
And I'll enjoy the other entries, of course.

I like your first, which could be though of being far older.

I love Belgium for some reason (the chocolate mostly).
Now I can't wait what people bring back from the streets

I like Bart's first photo an awful lot, the mural painting photo, and I really don't think I can compete with those pink cowboy boots.

All photos taken with a pentax optio w60.

Lobster boat in Maine:


Gordon Brown teaching a kayak lesson under the Skye Bridge in Scotland:



Harvest time:




Not a submission, but I find it funny - Guess what the old men I kept seeing in her pedal cab were looking at? Hint - it wasn't the Key West scenery.

immunogirl... your kayak lesson is a great image and the lobster boats a classic. as for the pedal cab woman, weren't they looking at the santa hat???

the boots were a surprise. bright sunny day, everyone in shorts, tees, sneakers, flip-flops and then these walked past. had to get a quick shot.... resistance is futile
