PF PHOTO CONTEST - Brought to you by the number 3! (Nov 15-22)

    This week's contest is brought to you by the number 3!

    The theme here is the number 3! Interpret that as creatively as you like

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    OOPs I was depending on image shack again. I will try to fix that.

    The plant is actually a cactus. (Night Blooming Cerus) In appearance it looks much like a dead stick. It blooms during the summer and only at night. The blossoms only last through the that one night. They will be wilted by noon.

    There should be a rule against going for the sympathy vote like this! :)

    And his only wish is to see a picture of him win this contest.

    That's a great photo, hypatia, and a great looking dog, but the heart-string-tugging is patently unfair. :wink: I want to meet him, now.

    Andre, I really had to study your carrots before I understood. And then I laughed. Clever!

    OOH, I have competition for you hypatia, we have a three legged cat, and though I know not what your friend's dog looks like, I have to say our cat is very cute...

    (This also reminds me of an Alice in Chains album cover...)

    Here are 3 destructive Japanese beetles. Multiply that thousands, and you may approximate the number of them that I killed by dunking them in soapy water. They were defoliating my fruit trees, raspberry canes, etc, and did a number on my Concord grapes, too.
