Photo Challenge: BEAR/BARE

This one was fun! I think you're going to love this pictures. Please tell the photographers all about your infatuation.

Will you join us next time? The prompt is below.

Pictures of baby bears make me want to snuggle and scritch them. Fortunately for us kcinnova kept her distance and expressed her delight photographically. How cool is this?

this one needs a title
I feel as though this one by Our Bethany has both BEAR and BARE in it. The lurking creature behind the curtain and then the contemplative bollicky bare ass boy in the foreground are working together to encompass the whole prompt.

I do a lot of shooting from the hip, quickly grabbing something as I power on by. Our Cindy gets an idea in her head and she takes the time to set it up and record it for posterity. This is a marvelous example of her playful genius.

Not It
I had this in my Flickr stream and I couldn't resist. You didn't expect me to, did you?

Not a Bear
I really hope this is as funny to you as it is to me. Our Lisa posted this in the Flickr group and titled it, "Not A Bear." Makes me laugh every time.

I think one of the greatest gifts in life is to find a partner in crime who honestly enjoys playing your reindeer games. Our Janet has clearly found herself a brilliant match.

We'll be posting the next challenge the day before both Valentines Day, which happens to be the day I mark as Eddie's birthday. He'll be four. I think let's use HEARTFELT as our prompt. Sound good?

Please enter by 9am Tuesday February 12th for posting on February 13th. Tag your photos with PHOTO CHALLENGE and BEAR/BARE. Check out the wonderful work in our Flickr Pool for inspiration. Also, let me know if you have questions.
