November Photograph Challenge

"It's not the camera that takes a great photograph, it is the photographer"
Hurrah!! It's challenge time!!!! ...and what a challenge I have for you all this month. As we are fast approaching the festive season I thought I would try and come up with a theme to get us into the spirit of things. Therefor, the November challenge theme is "Happiness".

Your photograph should represent something that makes you feel happy. I really wish you all to have a lot of fun with this one!!!!

Guidelines
Just to recap, the guidelines for the challenge are as follows:

1) Take a photograph that in some way, manner or form represents the theme of "Happy". You are welcome to use your artistic touch to manipulate the photograph using a photopackage such as photoshop. Be as creative as you desire!!! You are even welcome to submit a video clip, if that is your preferred media.

2) Include a brief explanation of how the photograph(s) relate to the theme. The photograph doesn't need to be outside, it can be of somebody or of something around the home.... it just needs to represent the theme of the month.

3) When you have posted your challenge, be sure to send me a link so that I can include it on my "November Challenge Entry" post at the end of the month!

4) You want to join in with the challenge but don't have a blog or website to display your photograph on?

No problem, either:

a)Just email me copy of the image, along with your name and a brief description of how the photograph(s) relate to the theme. I will then include your entry on my "November Challenge Entry" post at the end of the month!!!

b)Join up to a photo storage site like Redbubble or http://www.flickr.com/and upload your photograph, then leave a link to the photograph in the comments box on this post.

!!Happy Photography!!

I hope I make it in, I haven't been real timely in anything these days. :/

Something cheery for the season, good! The darkness is getting to me a bit, and it's cold too...

I'm gonna think about it and let you know when I find my challenge photo!

hmmmm .. dare I come up with a new costume for the pup - one of my favorite happy images. Oh, the temptation. ;)

Oh, I have something in mind that will just scrape in on the deadline. It is festive and fun but nothing to do with Christmas.

I think the theme for December's challenge should be "Festive"

I love this idea, and in fact, posted my photo on my blog the other day. Happiness is something I seek deeply these days, and generally mange to find, even in dark times. This is a great idea and it brought back such a happy time for me.

Thanks Graham, always fun participating in your challenges.

Best my friend,

I especially like the first picture. We have a big window in our livingroom and every time it's sunny the sun will shine really nicely in and my dog loves it. He always looks for the warm sunny spot to lie down and take a nap.
