    Time for the second one! Expiring April 30th

    This month's theme is FAIRY TALES. Take what you will from it!

    1. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. There are no "winners" in this. It is strictly a photo challenge where you present something based on a theme given for the challenge. There is NO COMPETITION.
    2. You may submit no more than 3 pictures per challenge.
    3. If you feel like you need to explain your work, please feel free to do so.
    4. SERIOUSLY, THIS ISN'T A FUCKING CONTEST.
    5. You will be given ONE MONTH to complete the challenge and post it.
    6. Photoshopping is allowed, but don't go overboard and please use only your own photos.
    7. For clarification, please submit ORIGINAL photography. Meaning: You took this picture.
    8. The picture must be taken for this challenge. Meaning, please don't dig up old photos from several months ago.
    9. Ideas are randomly selected and submitted via e-mail by members and can be anything from a single word, to a poem...anything, really. To send an idea, e-mail it to wcphotochallenge@gmail.com

    the wording in rule 5 might want to be tweaked a bit: "This is the first challenge, so one month is the test time."

    Excellent! The last one took a while to take off but ended up kicking arse rather nicely. Allana is obviously not safe to be left alone with porridge, Pupato had me snorting coffee all over my monitor and everybody worked hard with what turned out to be a rather difficult subject, cheers and pats on the back all round!

    Now, fairy tales eh? This should be interesting!

    First my mind was parsing the implications of Si making us sticky. Now I'm thinking of a bear in a dress.

    this should be an interesting month.

    @Allana - thick oatmeal with liquid latex over it makes for some really grody looking skin. You can dress up as a witch with some super nasty warts, or some other kind of creepy fairy tale monster.

    I have a few different ideas for this one but I have no idea how photogenic any of them are... I'll have to give it a shot at various times to see how the lighting will work for this.

    About an hour or two before sundown the river looks as likely a setting as any for a Fairy Tail. The photo is as shot, flares and all with just a bit of tweaking for contrast.
    The closer you get to sundown the more your mind starts adding wee creatures to all the hidey-holes in the bank. (It's great that we have a contest like this full of prizes, I wanna win that car too)

    Fairy Tails Click for the engorgening!

    Hi All,

    Longtime lurker here. I thought I'd jump in on this since I've actually got a picture that fits right in here...i hope.

    Thanks to Oldhat and Big Papi Si for giving us a great sandbox to play in(sans the dookie that one kid always buries in the corner where all the good, wet sand is).

    Cheers,

    Ian

    Wow, that's fucking gorgeous.

    For future though, part of the challenge is to take a photo for the challenge, not to go back to old photos. But, I'm allowing this because as I said above, it's fucking gorgeous. Good job!
