Thank you, everyone, for such great participation this week. Not only in number but in quality. It's hard to choose just three when all of them are this good.
My apologies for not commenting on each photo. But I'm on my way out of town (unexpectedly) as soon as I submit this and may not be back until tomorrow.

With more winners than places, I narrowed it down by the usual criteria but also by how each photo struck my senses.

1st place: Spocco57 - "Old gear"
2nd place: teekay - "For sale: Wringer/Washer, As Is."
3rd place: Marie - "...OMG...please don't jump...."

Take it away, Spocco!


While beginning the yearly preparation for the rainy season this weekend, I discovered that one of my favorite wind chimes had developed a rather nasty skin condition; ie. rust. “What, rust in Seattle?” you ask. Yep, even in the summer. So this week’s theme is things that have rusted. You probably won’t have to look far. Easy contest so keep the basic rules of photography in mind; composition, focus, lighting, etc. Most importantly, have fun. :D

Congrats to Spoco, teekay & Marie! All great entries and lots of old, rusty things & a nice variety.

On a side note, I will play one more week then be absent for about 5-6 weeks. My husband (most of you know him as Moderator Skip Souza here) has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. We are going to take a little vacation and have some fun, then go on to UCLA from there to have lots of test,s & procedures all culminating in brain surgery on November 3rd. We feel like we are in very good hands there and since it is a slower growing tumor, our neurosurgeon told us to go have some fun first and then we will buckle down to business. Hopefully life will get back to normal by Christmas.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.
