Rules can be found here...Rules Thread

This months theme is....

Time for a Fresh Start


I would have thought the title is self explanatory - Photos on the theme of time, new beginnings, even things ending badly, or not starting at all - make of it it what you will. As long as you can shoehorn a connection to the theme in there somewhere, nobody is going to care how tenuous your link is.

Pos. Points
1st 25
2nd 18
3rd 15
4th 12
5th 10
6th 8
7th 6
8th 4
9th 2
10th 1

If you get no votes, you get no points (like a DNF in F1)

If you choose to enter, you have 21 days to post a picture that you have taken that meets the above criteria

New Rules for 2012 - Photoshopping is limited to Global Edits (i.e. they apply to the whole photo, not to one specific part) and cropping only

Posting will finish on the 28th March
Voting will run from 28th March to 4th April

By the way I'm adding any brief description/explanation as the title of the shot, so be warned

Quick note to say just another 2 weeks to get your entries in for this month - don't worry about your photo not quite fitting the brief, just shoehorn it in as best you can.


this isn't a Shameless bump to make sure it stays on the front page, honest

In Japan if you're planning a fresh start by having a baby you first visit a temple such as the one where these little statues are that are dedicated to fertility to pray for a healthy bub.

Hasedera Temple complex, Kamakura.

Kawaiiiii!

Just added your entry to the first post


incidentally, just so nobody thinks my replying to every post in my own thread is egotistical, it's just a way of being able to see if there are any new posts without having to actually look in the thread

Nice shot, is there a title for the pic? I'll add it to the top post when you come back (I'm guessing that "Michael Bay Style" isn't the intended picture)

Okay, this is a bit of a stretch but kind of thinking, locked up, doing time etc Very tenuous!

Cool, both pics added to the opening post.

Have to say it's great to have so many strong entries, especially for such a wanky theme, should have put some more effort into my entry

Must admit took me a while to think of a time themed caption to mine. It almost seems like a homosexual relationship is on the cards!

Just a quick reminder to everyone that there's just under a week to get your entries in, so if you've not taken anything yet, it's a nice weekend to get out and about.
