MadSnapper said...

lots of creativity here.. had no idea how many thing they could come up with. all i could think of was architecture and apples

Tracy said...

Gosh, I don't know if I could choose, they are all so very special. I liked 'aircraft' but 'architecture' was also special, well crap; just can't decide!

diane b said...

Theresa S has my vote.

Sharon Wagner said...

Wow, I'm the first to comment. The Amaryllis is very striking. But it is always so fun to see all the entries. I love your contest.

Bossy Betty said...

Wonderful entries!!! It's great to see the creativity your contests bring out in people!

Unknown said...

Amaryllis would get my vote! But there are several great photos there.

Far Side of Fifty said...

Well done everyone! I was too busy to participate this month..maybe I will find a circle or two for next month:)

Hilary said...

Many wonderful shots here. What a good idea.

Mellodee said...

Well, I've picked my favorite! Quite a range, but the one I'd choose is a real stand-out. We'll see if I picked a winner!! I haven't yet, but sooner or later I'm bound to get it right, if only because of the law of averages! LOL!

I love this contest, mainly because I can't take decent photos and really admire people who can! Thanks for hosting such a great showcase!

Grandmother Mary said...

Amaryllis is my favorite with its remarkable detail. What a good group!

SquirrelQueen said...

Another fantastic assortment of photos, the takes on the theme are amazing.

Circles? I'm searching now!

Ahh! I loves me some Amaryllis but that little girl... I'm soooo glad I'm not a judge. lol!

*now to go find something circular.

CrazyCris said...

Gorgeous!!! No idea who will win, they're all amazing! But I do have a favourite: LOVE that Mayan pyramid at the beginning!!! Brings back childhood memories... :o)

I forgot to send in my A shot, but in all honesty it wasn't worthy of these. I'll try to think of something extra special for circles! ;o)

Midlife Roadtripper said...

I vote for the Amaryllis. Beautiful.

Debbie Lo said...

Great job, everyone! Your pictures were all so different and really inspiring! I like the Arenal Volcano.
