RESULTS

Fewer entries than I expected for this theme, but thanks to the three who did take up the challenge. You're all winners!

First place: Trumper, "Next doors cat and one of our dogs at ours LOL :-)"

Photos of cats and dogs getting along aren't unusual, but I liked the arrangement of color areas in yours, made by the bright and dark bedding and the mottled coats of the pets. Composition was a big plus.

Second place: M_Six, "Lots of neighbors"

Nice clean shot of urban architecture. Lots of neighbors, indeed! How many of one's neighbors in these beehive structures would become close neighbors?

Third place: Maureen Souza, "I Love My Neighbors"

Those are charming neighbors you have. They look like sweet creatures with personality. It'd be interesting to know the story, how these residents came to live in your neighborhood.

Well it would be nice to have had a few more entries... it was an easy subject this week. Congrats to Trumper & Mark.

My 'neighbors' live at the farm which is right at the edge of our neighborhood. I have lived here 38 years and the farm has been here since the 50's. There are also sheep & horses...they used to have pigs but no longer. The Llamas moved in about 8 years ago.

Thanks for the 2nd Place nod, OhLook.

Love the llamas, Maureen. I think I saw that white one in a commercial about banking apps or some such thing.

And being cat people, the cat and dog pic is appreciated. We have a cat who will snug up against any warm body.

Congratulations to all three who entered - and Trumper would have been my top pick, too.

Sorry I didn't enter this week, OhLook - just couldn't find a worthy shot.:rolleyes:
