Photo Challenge: RAPTURE

I wish I came up with prompts like this more often. I love what you all offer every time but in this instance, I don't know, we got some special entries. They didn't all fit here so please, please, please go to the Flickr Pool to see what I had to leave out. (You get that I include one shot from each photog here but many folks contribute more than one pic to the pool, right?) It's true of every challenge but this time especially you're missing out if you aren't checking out all the entries.

Elephant Soap made this especially for the prompt and I am just in love with it. How did she get the lighting so perfect? What's she looking at? Is she wearing undies?

Fondofsnape made the decision making process hard for me. She included shots from near where I grew up and of things and people I love. This Croque Madame from Les Halles finally just would not shut up until I posted it, though.

I think lshykula needs to copyright protect this shot ASAP because some religious group is going to co-opt the image for all their rapture needs. Beautiful!

Jaruud also contributed a picture worthy of the Saturday Evening Post. View this one large, though, and check out the baby's eyes. If you aren't laughing as hard as I do every time I look at that chubbin you are dead inside, truly dead. I can't help you. I love this shot.

My dog loves to run. That is all.

This prompt thing, why is it so tough for me? I think I put too much pressure on myself and don't just let the ideas flow. I've landed on COUNTRY for our next challenge. Don't think I need to explain that since the deadline is the day after Independence Day. (Interpret as you will. Please!)

Please add as many photos as you like to our Flickr Pool by 9am on Tuesday July 5 for posting on Wednesday July 6. Please tag with PhotoChallenge and COUNTRY. Drop me a line in the comments or by email if you have any questions.

As always, thanks for participating. I love doing this and I hope you do, too.


  1. ohhhhh this will be FUN. i've actually got some ideas i can do for it. :)

    also? that baby's a riot. baby faces (when not covered in food/other wet things) are utterly hilarious most of the time.

  2. what a great group, Kizz! Elephant Soap outdid herself :-)

  3. 1. East facing window with morning sun. 2. Yes, I'm wearing panties.

    Thank you!

  4. I submitted some for this week...late, so sorry, darn vacation!
