RESULTS

At least our federal, state or local government has done something right, of reserving some area for parks and recreactions. Whether it was in the private park, urban park or national park, I hoped you guys and gals enjoyed the walks and the moment to capturing you pictures for this challenge. Thanks everyone for being here and sharing your experiences with us.

I've enjoyed seeing everyone's pics, either by sound of:-
Kevan_G9 - July 4th, James Taylor at Tanglewood - Park Yourself
antz88c - Parks and wifelife postcard

Or sight of:-
Bluecoyote - Default Public Park Sculpture in Wallace, Idaho
marie - Winter's Palette in the Park
teekay - Park Art
mikerault - An old wagon in Cades Cove park

Or action shots of:-
macroshot - Locke Park wildlife
maxwolfie - Kentlyn Mountain Bike Park
Maureen Souza - Ready to Climb the Monkey Bars
rpolitsr - defying gravity
KC Jewel - Giant Spikey Ball Takes Over Park
Car - Sitting in the Park

I hope I still have got a friend (external link) (thanks Kevan for the song) from the guys by choosing the top three winning ladies:-

1st - marie - Winter's Palette in the Park
2nd - Car - Sitting in the Park
3rd - Maureen Souza - Ready to Climb the Monkey Bars

Congrats to the winners!

I really enjoyed the stop action photos of the mtber and the skateboarder. Who says the G series can't catch action?

So what is it about Great Danes? So big...so apparently ackward with the size of themselves, they come off as clowns. They make for fun and funny photos.

Boy, was I lazy with my photo submission this week. Didn't even bother leaving my seat to get a better shot of JT and all his fans. But then...why should I? I was otherwise pretty busy:
