Ah, GT, If only you had a photo of you walking up to her, and her winking at you, I am sure you would have been the Oh! Wow! winner.
All us "old" men envy you so much.
I hope my French is correct but I find les femmes de France sont tellement beau et élégant

I am sorry. I made a mistake
I came to her, and thanked her as she was walking out of the stage.
That's quite a bit different She is strikingly beautiful, if a little on the thin side.

Pentax Q, 01 8.5mm pentax prime, closeup filter. Not sure how he got to this spot, the door is very slick. The side wall is rough but he would have to had jumped a molding.

thanks

That is a nice thing to do, G.T.
Recognizing her as a person.

Very well spotted.

Poor thing, trapped at the edge of the world.

Almost correct, that's "belles et élégantes" as it's a feminine gender.
And not all of them are so belles nor élégantes. The elegance itself is not a French monopoly

One should always be thankful.

"Great, I'm going to be late to work."




Apple iPhone, whatever automated settings it used. Someone hacked a road sign on Chew Road in Upper Marlboro, MD. I was on my way to work. I brought out the colors a little in Photoshop, the original was washed out just a bit.

I know. I stopped DEAD on the road to take the picture. Made my day

The overturned traffic barrel next to the sign sells it.

Well, Todd, you certainly entered our contest with both guns blazing! Three superb entries.
I must say that month after month I am constantly amazed by the quality of the images achieved with compact cameras.

It now remains to be seen whether the "old regulars" panic and start revising their entries....
You still have the upcoming weekend people

I have to agree, these are nice entries. I love the lizard and the hacked sign.
There was such in northern France, coupled to a speedtrap: when people were driving over the speed limit, the sign said "**** you" (in plain English).
