    Well, another month — another contest.
    Thanks again for all of those that entered last month, this month should be much bigger and better.
    The winner receives a new Fuji Digital Camera, worth $100. (this is really a great camera!!!!)
    For pictures of the camera and to look at pictures taken by the camera click here.

    NOTE: The subjects this month are CHILDREN & ANIMALS. Any type of animal and any type of child.
    Only one picture of each subject may be submitted. If a child or animal is included in a group that does count as being entered once.

    1. You can enter each day if you would like, but send ONLY ONE PHOTOGRAPH EACH DAY.
    2. The contest starts today, May 2, 2011 and goes until May 31, 2011.
    3. Here is the tricky part. Do not duplicate subjects, send only one picture of each subject. For example, if you have five children, send only one picture of each child. Only one picture of a cat, one picture of a dog, one buffalo, you get the idea. So this means, pick your favorite picture of each subject and send it, I only want your best.
    4. ONLY PICTURES TAKEN BY YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, pictures entered by ‘Frank’ must be taken by ‘Frank’.
    5. You can’t submit for someone else, everyone must enter their own pictures, using their own email.
    6. Your pictures are safe with me, I will ONLY use the images to judge the contest.
    7. Here is how to submit a photograph. Use this May 2nd blog to submit your entries. Just add a caption in the comment box, then attach the image using the browse button in the box below the comment box, then click ‘submit comment’.
    8. Bribing the judge (ME) is prohibited, but you can always try.
    9. Remember, enter only one picture per day.
    10. Because this is a family site, keep your photographs child friendly!!!!!
    11. Breaking any rule will disqualify you for that entry and that day.

    12. Any picture that has been used in a prior contest CAN BE USED AGAIN  !!!!!!!!

    Good luck everyone, please tell your friends and family to enter.

      Another grandchild Gary with his cattail ‘sword’ on an evening of fishing. Poor guy got bored fishing sitting still… and like little boys can, started to make do with natural toys around him while the adults continued to fish. As it was getting dark I noticed he was silhouetted against the setting sun and captured this photo.

      From Pam: What a great photograph!!! This truly one of a kind.

    • TWO in ONE (Gull & Pelican)

      I was actually photographing Pelicans by Farmington’s Waterfowl Management Area…when someone feeding ducks threw a piece of bread by this Pelican. A Seagull swooped in too get the piece of bread resulting in this half action, half still photo. Thought it came out interesting as it still almost left a full body photo of the Pelican.

We always rode her bareback. Choice is the colt – she is half Arabian. Pam was her trainer from the time she was born. Pam went on to ride Choice in parades and show her in horse shows where she won lots of ribbons. Yes, Pam definitely loves horses.

      From Pam: Thanks for the great picture Kathy, I love it!!!!!

    • Makenzi curtis


    • ‘Tulip Caper’

      This photo was taken a BBQ with family. The children had been instructed to NOT pick the flowers in the yard…when I CAUGHT Aiden picking a tulip with my camera (haha)…I laughed when I saw this photo as it truly depicts Aidens mischievous and sometimes disobedient behavior all over his little boy face (complete with a healing wound on his nose from a prior adventure). Truly all boy, even in the flowers!

      A baby deer resting under the hitching post in front of our house.

      From Pam: Wow, cool picture Diana, nice parking place for a deer.

    • Twin calves 1967. They weren’t really twins, one was adopted because the mother had enough milk for both. But the mother wouldn’t let the “adopted” one suck – so dad tied the calves together so when one ate, the other could too. Worked like a charm.

      From Pam: I remember those calves, Dad did that quite often. Great picture!!!

    • A sandpiper actually standing still, for once!

      From Pam: Great picture, I love the beach!!!
