Photo Challenge: LION/LAMB

This one was tough. Tougher to choose what to use than to find photos that fit. That was a surprise. We've got some goodies. Scroll down for new prompt and please, please, please love on these contributors.

This is from Our Cindy's visit to New York City last summer. The moment I saw it I missed her acutely.

Earlier this year Our Lisa live tweeted a run where she accidentally dressed inappropriately and nearly got frostbite. This photo makes me think that her excursions are getting safer.

Thundering In
Please welcome our newest member Summer Haze aka Ana! I have known her since she was a baby and I'm so glad to have her here. You should check out her Flickr stream.

I felt like this one, of Alex, was a nice complement to Our Cindy's library lion. Pretty sure he wasn't actually annoyed, just yanking my chain.

UPDATED: So you can see how strict I am about deadlines and stuff.

is he coming or going?
We didn't have a lamb represented so when Our Janet entered this one this morning I thought, what the hey, I'm flexible, right? Yes I am! Oh shut it.

There are many reasons I didn't become an elementary school teacher. One of them is that I'd be freaking baffled by coming up with a new bulletin board theme every couple of weeks. I went down a slightly windy St. Patrick's Day road to come up with our next prompt. It's FORTUNE. Can't wait to see what you all come up with for that!

Please enter by 9am Tuesday March 26th for posting on March 27th. Tag your photos with PHOTO CHALLENGE and FORTUNE. Check out the wonderful work in our Flickr Pool for inspiration. Also, let me know if you have questions.


The New York City Listen To Your Mother Show is happening on May 12, 2013 at 5pm at Symphony Space. Ticket and venue information can be found here. I hope to see you there! If you aren't close to this show please check this site to see if there is a LTYM show near you.

  2. I'm with Janet, argh! Great collection though. Just saw the first shoots of green here yesterday ... lamb please! Love Alex's look too, classic. And that lion just made me miss NYC.
