So it can just be any building? Because I have one in mind, but it won't really be. . . conventional.
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.

yes you can just take a picture of some building near you if you wish. but to win, you might want to make sure it is a quality shot... by that I mean you have good color balance, composition, focus, etc...

and yes, you each have only two entries.
the judge will be... someone i havent pmed yet, but will soon. they are quite qualified and everything so don't fret.

Hmm, haven't thought of a nickname yet (Safety would work I guess)... :)

The Hobart Building is one of the many 'relics' of the early 20th century SF. Guess you can see the contrast of the times between this and the modern buildings next to it.

Wheeee! Time once again for the invasion of the Japanese images! :lol: So anyway, it was very hard for me to pick only 2 of my Japan photos for this. :waah!: In then end I decided on these two which are both taken at temples. The first one is a temple in Takamatsu and the second one is ... oh can't remember how to spell it... :?: anyway it's in Kyoto. This will probably be the last time I enter Japanese photos since I don't want you all to get sick of them. :lol:

Here's my first submission. I'll get a second later, I already had this one (I took it a few years ago with my now deceased SLR).

It's the schoolhouse that my father attended for his first 7 or 8 years of school. It is about 2 miles from my family's house and is part of a small ghost town.

Might as well post the other one as well.

It's the same church from pic 1,

but a different view. At first the bright white above, cause of the gray day, really annoyed me. Though, now, at a second look, it sort of gives the pic a fairy tale feel.

Just so MyrrhLynn doesnt feel alone, I will make my entries pictures from Japan as well. ^_^

First we have the longest wooden bridge in Japan (sorry, I cant remember the name... >_<)
Image

And then a Picture of a sunset against the Castle in Hirosaki Park... Well, its not really the castle (which burned down many years ago), but that`s what everyone calls it. In reality I think its just the biggest watch tower still standing.

Image

I wish I could have seen Hirosaki Park in the spring, all those trees you see would have been full of Cherry Blossoms.
Depend on it. God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards, and He much prefers doing so.

I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.
