Challenge has finished
Photographers are (or want to be regarded as) Artists, and artists usually tend to create in more than one field of expression. So let's connect our visual artistry to poetry. Create a LIMERICK - and use one of your pictures to illustrate it. Or do this the other way 'round, if it is easier for you. How to write a limerick? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limerick_%28poetry%29 , also here http://freewebs.com/limericks/ . Once you have it composed, use the sample below to see how to form your Entry.
