I lost a friend to cancer yesterday, but became a great uncle the day before. Life is like that. But it has me thinking about those in our lives who are special to us. Show me yours. Doesn't have to be a human, either. Pets work equally well.

Contest closed. I was hoping for more shots, but the ones posted here certainly fit the theme. Thanks to all.

I'm going to go with teekay's shot because it reminds me so much of my mother and her Chromebook. She resisted letting me buy her one for years, and now that she has one, she can't put it down.

All yours, teekay.

Congratulations Teekay, and thanks for hosting and judging, I too thought there would be far more entries than there was.

Congratulations Teekay. And congratulations to the others who entered :-). Excellent photos by all.

This was an easy contest to enter. My only problem was deciding which photo to use. Thanks Mark for the challenge.

Thanks, M_Six!

Actually I did think this was a tough one for many - at least for me. Some "special people" photos were taken with other than G-series cameras, some people wouldn't or didn't want their photos posted, many don't have cute small kids, and other "specials" were not available to ask, etc.

I'll try and get a new challenge up later today.

P.S. OK, it's up - an easy one, so I hope lots of entries,:-)

It was tough enough for me, for some of the reasons you gave, that I didn't enter. I don't usually take pictures of people at all. That's all right, a new challenge comes along every week.

Congrats to Teekay...loved the shot. The toughest part for me is trying to get my 14 yr old camera to focus......it is getting harder & harder for me to be patient with it while it hunts & hunts for a focus point.

Nice entries from everyone!!
