April Photo Contest

Postby Scribs » Wed Apr 05, 2006 2:26 pm

After taking a small break in March, the CAA Photo contest is back! With spring rapidly aproaching, this months theme is PLANTS!

Same rules as always. You must have taken the picture yourself (though it can be one you took before the start of the contest) No photoshoping, except to resize, and the Deadline is the 30th. Get to it folks!

(Oh and could a mod movethis to the contest forum? Thanks)

Uh, so, there's a lovely redirect in the general forum! So that more people can see this and sign on up! ^_^

Actually, it was an accident. . . I kinda messed up. . . but it can't hurt anything, right?

Right?. . . XD

Anyways, cool theme, I'll be interested in seeing what you guys turn out! :D
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

And here we go:

These are flowers that popped up all over campus last spring. So when I had time, which actually doesn't happen very often, I ran around campus and took pictures.

And those are very lovely yellow flowers sldr4Christ. I believe that we are each allowed 2 submissions.

every new day seem so new.

well i decided to take a picture of the cactus garden thing in the front yard instead of finding another plant lol those are probably the only ones that are coming back so far....it would seem my truck stole the show though and made the cactuses blurry
