February Photo Contest

Postby Scribs » Thu Feb 09, 2006 8:03 pm

Hello all! It is time to start the monthly CAA Photo Contest.

This Month's Theme: Shadows
Make sure that shadows figure somehow into your picture.

Rules are the same as always, no editing of the pictures besides resizing (no photoshoping, this is a photo contest not a graphic design contest.) You can use pictures you took previous to the start of the contest if you so desire. Each person may enter up to two pictures.

Get to it.

Ooh, shadows, cool subject.
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.

Love is that feeling you get when a girl looks at you and it feels like your driving a car at high speeds and experience a sudden drop. You know what i mean? That sudden sinking feeling you get in your stomach? Yeah, that's love. Leave's you speechless everytime.

Shadows eh? This should be interesting. Nice pictures so far everyone.

Oh Eire Wolf, what is the middle book you have there? A poem or song book? The other two werent hard to figure out. ;)
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.

The middle book is the complete works of Emily Dickinson. One of my favorite poets. :)

Coffee is better than tea. Please Ignore Me.

A holographic image pops up out of nowhere.

"Mauhahaha. I see you found your first clue. I under estimated you. Perhaps you're not as ignorant as you look. Or more likely you got here by luck. The key to the poem was: What time of year is NOT mentioned as holding pessimistic omens? Everytime. Except Leap Year, which is in February. There you will talk to your "coffee." Kofi Annan's whereabouts are somewhere very plain if only you could decipher it. But I feel sorry for you, so...here's another clue!


"And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
Of coffee from the pot that's steaming,
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!"
-The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe.
